Too much crystal in my opinion.

Pretty sweet malts, but I think you have the hops to balance it out. I'm guessing the color will be... red.

A little on the light side. A smidge under 5%abv depending on your efficiency.

I like it.

I think you should brew it and tell us what you think. As long as you hit your temp on the mash it won't suck. In fact, it'll be good.

If you really want to do something different, swap that crystal out for crystal rye. I love that stuff...

Yeah. I'm just a bit nervous. I don't want to waste time and money on crap beer lol

crystal rye...I don't think there's any at the home brew store near where I live. What does it taste and smell like?

Yeah. I'm not going for any particular style per se. I mean, I don't even know what to call this. I am using many German ingredients though.

Yep and yep. I think that crystal rye tastes like caramel and subdued rye. In fact, I'm not sure that I could tell the difference between it and a rye/crystal 80 mix. That being said one of the few recipes that I'm truly happy with that I've developed uses it and isn't quite the same without it. It's 8 lbs pale malt, 3 lbs rye malt, and 0.5 lbs crystal rye. Tried the same thing a couple times with various crystals and it's just not as good I don't think.

Back on topic, my personal preference is to avoid going over 5% with crystal anything in a pale ale, which is what this will probably be like. Your tastes may be different. Likewise, I prefer a lot of rye in my rye beers, most people don't. I would say that this beer won't be bad, but the rye will probably be overpowered by the sweetness of the crystal malt. It certainly won't be bad, nor a waste of money. I think you should go for it. That way you can decide what you like/don't like about this beer and build a recipe from there.
