I'm trying to better the AHS Magic Hat #9 clone. I'm quite new to brewing but have a pretty good grasp of it. Tell me what you think of this...

5 lbs xtra pale DME
1/2 lb 2 row
1/2 lb crystal 40
1 oz cascade (60min)
1/2 oz Amarillo (15 min)
1/2 oz Amarillo (5 min)
White labs english ale wlp002 (I plan to do a starter)
3 oz Apricot flav. during bottling.

I probably will rack to secondary after 1 week or so and leave alone for at least another week.
You're the experts, how can i make this better?????

I recently made a clone I developed by myself. It is bottle aging at the time but the samples have tasted great. I wasn't worried about the color but it turned out just a bit darker than I would have liked. When I get home tonight I am planning on posting the recipe.

On your recipe, looks good. I know I used 6lb of LME and 1 late addition of DME. The hop additions look good and I used 4 oz of apricot extract, mostly becuase swmbo encouraged me to so 3 oz looks about right.

I am still up in the air about 3 or 4 oz. of the apricot. I'm leaning toward 4.

I said Wicked Witch #1 but what I meant was "Wicked Wench #1". (I've had a few this evening...my bad.)
