The tettnang hops will add a spicy character, especially since they are added late in the boil. It will be a German ale and I'm sure it will be delicious. It is fun to play with different hops to get a feel for how they influence the flavor. Amarillo is one of my other favorites besides noble hops like tett and hallertauer.

PROST!

Yeah, I based it on edwort's all grain recipe. I was a little concerned that 1.5 pounds of Cara-Pils might be too much but I needed that to get the OG in the range for the style. Anyone have thoughts on this?
