Very cool.

Can you give us some tasting notes?

I'm looking to formulate a solid Amber Ale, and this looks like a recipe I would like to brew. The IBUs seem a tad low for the style though, it's not too cloyingly sweet is it?

I didn't think so, but it could be amped up a bit on the IBU's. +5 My friends said this is the best beer I have ever made. They really like ambers.

I used home grown hops and wanted it to be hoppy in flavor & aroma but still taste the maltiness.

Yes - Sort of but w/o chocolate malt and victory. I used 40L instead of 60L. I'm looking at Jamil Zainasheffs recipe as a reference. (American Brown)

Its more of a simple amber.

When I made this I was trying to replicate McMenamins Hammerhead. I wasn't real close but it tasted pretty good. Good cascade nose.

http://www.mcmenamins.com/?loc=75&id=415

Hammerhead
A classic Northwest pale ale and McMenamins top selling beer. This rich chestnut colored gem is a model of harmony between hops and malted barley. Hammerhead's signature Cascade hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the crystal malt. This beer has a vocal following. To run out is an unforgivable sin.

Malts used: Pale Malt; Crystal Malt
Hops used: Cascades

Original Gravity: 1.056; Terminal Gravity: 1.010
Alcohol by Volume: 5.93%
Calories: 241 per pint


This is one of the first recipes I made once I got Promash. I like how it turned out.

I never thought it as being too sweet. I made a few beers way in the past that were and I didn't like them, not to mention they had poor head retention.

This beer is balanced; its malty, but with good hop character, slight taste of caramel. It developes a very nice head as result of the 40L & carapils.

I used pellet hops for bittering and my home grown whole hops for aroma/flavor.

If you wanted to bump up the IBU to 30; (less than 5 makes no detectable difference)
- On an extract batch, raise the boil volume to 3 gal. Or buy 1 extra oz of cascade add 1/4 @60 1/4 @30 1/2@0 Minutes

- On an AG add an extra oz of cascade @10 min.

Why does the AG version only have 1oz 60min Cascade while the extract version has 1oz 60min and 1oz 30min Cascade for essentially the same results?
