There is a residual sweetness from the crystal malts. 1.010 is drier than I have ever had it but that's a lower OG and lower percentage of crystal than I've brewed it too.

Sweet was the wrong word to use, I guess hitting 1.051, when it should have been 1.060 for original gravity surprised me.

Hello,

I have read the entire thread and you have made changes throughout. Is the original recipe (post#1) the recipe that I should brew? It looks amazing btw. Props to you, Malticulous.

That one is as good as any of them. I always have different malts around. I don't seem to ever be able to get everything I want from one supplier. So I substitute and try different maltsters and hops. This grain bill seems to stand up well with most any hop schedule.

Brewed up a 10 gallon. This is my third time with this recipe. A few minor changes. Its always a nice brew for the rotation.

I'm new to home brewing, but thought that I would try this beer because I love reds.
I may have made some errors of beginners because I cut some some corners; for instance I used only 60L and not 40 or 80L.
May I ask what each component contributes to the beer? My batch is now 2 days in and it looks good so far. I'll let you know how it tastes.

I am sorry to post this message, but I made this beer using your recipe and it tasted terrible. Too much crystal. I made it when I was less experienced at brewing and I think if 15% crystal is to be used, then Munich needs to be added to balance things out.

Just being honest, not upset or anything. G/L

Kind of surprised we've got to 14 pages before someone said that. A FG of 1.013-1.015 is important.

Have you ever tried any other American Amber recipes that have less crystal than your recipe and has a bit of munich?

I went back to look at my notes. OG: 1.059 FG:1.013
