My third last batch, an amber ale, had 1/2 lb honey malt, 1/2 crystal 120, and 1 lb crystal 60 ( and 1/2 lb honey at flameout) Tastes fanfockingtastic flat. In a couple of weeks it will be an award wining ale, a month after that it will rule the world and after the apocalypse I'll brew it and become mayor of my small survivor village and be protected form the mutant zombies and aliens by my entourage of amber ale loving compatriots who love me for my amber ale making abilities and in particular the 2 lbs of seeped grains in my extract award wining ale.

In other words I wouldn't worry man, just brew it and see.

FWIW and YMMV and WTF,
