Default Looking for Alaskan Ale

I'm trying to find an extract or partial mash recipe for an Alaskan Red Ale. There's big difference (to me anyway) between an Alaskan and a traditional as it has a bigger feel to it. Any help is very welcome.

No luck with the search tool.

The red has a very full body and heavy "mouthy" feel. Exremely smooth and has a little kick in the nuts. This is about all I can extract from their site:
Original Gravity: 1.054, ABV 5.3%, Bitterness: 18 IBU, Color 22 SRM

And actually it's an Amber....but it's a little more serious than most.

Muchos Gracias. Think I'll give the Austin Homebrew version a try.

I "grew up" on Alaskan Amber (and in Juneau). It was their flagship beer, and is still one of their best. Wish I could find it here in WI, but I'll be moving to OR soon where it is abundant.

post what you think of it when all is said and done.

I made the extract version of this last summer and it turned out very good and very similar to Alaska's

O.K. now I know what beer you are talking about. You said red and I thought it might be an Irish red or something I have not seen yet. Amber is a good beer.

In terms of BJCP styles, it is an alt and not an american amber ale.
