I am looking to make an amber ale. Something that is easy drinking, not too hoppy, but I would also like to used a pale ale LME. Would I be able to get something red from a pale ale extract and adding grains like a 20-30 crystal and maybe roasted barley?
I have been researching recipes a lot lately and I haven't found anything too promising yet - and if I do, it has amber extract with it.
I haven't made one of my own recipes yet, but the extract with specialty grain recipes don't seem like they would be too hard to come up with something. I just don't want to dump a bunch of money into it yet if it doesn't turn out.
