First off I want to say how great this forum is, I am so glad i found it.
Second, I have only been brewing for a couple of months, but I am ready to start an all grain lager. I found a reciped in "More Homebrew Favorites", but it calls for 4 lbs of Superbrau unhopped amber malt extract. Could anyone help me with a possible substitute for this ingredient or another recipe. I would really like to make it an all-grain beer. Thanks in advance.
I'd throw a pound or two of honey malt in that as well. I heard that lends some honey flavor without adding honey. I'd research it more, but that sounds like a good alternative.
Otherwise pale 2 row is the best bet to use as a base grain. Adjunct it with carapils for body, maybe a litle flaked wheat for head retention, and experiment with crystal 10-120L for color.....
