Thanks for the recipe! I might try something similar and use yours as a base. The recipes I saw
that used the darker crystal was for some lighter beers - a yuengling clone and a pale ale.
Those are th...

Perfect. I'm sold - gonna send an email to them today for a quote. When you used the crystal,
how much did you use and what darkness did you get? I saw quite a few recipes in the main
section used aro...

Sorry for the confusion! Yes, I'm referring to their crystal/vienna/munich/chateau abbey malts

There's been a lot of discussion lately about mashing CMC's malts but I'm just not ready to

Hopefully it'll ...

Thanks for both the suggestions! I had used that brewtoad website and the hops came in at 25

40-60. I might ...

Hello all - I'd like to post a recipe I've cobbled together for a blonde ale and would love
some feedback on it. I first tried brewing beer to little success about a year ago and switched
