I'm trying one of the HBT members recipes, ChshreCat's Brown Biscuit Ale,
only problem is I don't have access to amber lme.
Heres the recipe and my substitution
Ingredients Amount Item Type % or IBU
7.00 lb Amber Liquid Extract (12.5 SRM) Extract 73.68 %
1.00 lb Special B Malt (180.0 SRM) Grain 10.53 %
0.50 lb Biscuit Malt (23.0 SRM) Grain 5.26 %
0.50 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 5.26 %
0.50 lb Pale Malt (6 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 5.26 %
1.00 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] (45 min) Hops 14.1 IBU
1.00 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] (15 min) Hops 7.6 IBU
1 Pkgs SafAle English Ale (DCL Yeast #S-04) Yeast-Ale
I was planning on sub-ing the Amber with:
6 lbs light LME
0.5lbs munich malt
0.5lbs of crystal 80L
Anyone have any other suggestions. I want to keep the recipe as close to the original as possible.
PS: Bought the last lbs of Special B from my LHBS and only have access to 80L crystal so I cant add more special B or a different crystal.
Any input would be appreciated.
