How much volume did you end up with? By my calculations in promash you should end up closer to 1.048 for an OG. How much victory did you use? And what was the AA% on the centennial? Using the presets in promash I'm getting over 92 IBUs which is very bitter for the amount of fermentables you used. Is this your own recipe or did you follow someone else's? It will be a super bitter amber ale.

Well the 7.7% brings the IBU's down to under 70, but it's still going to be bitter. You've got the hops in the IPA range, but the malt in the "Ordinary Bitter" catagory. Just be prepared for it to be bitter. About half of the amount of centennial would be right for an American Pale Ale. Everything else looks fine. If you want to use the same malt in the future and want to get closer to an english style, use about 1 oz of EK Goldings for the full boil and keep the rest of your hops the same. Then it will be dead on for a "Premium Bitter" style ale.

Bitter??? What's wrong with bitter? This doesn't sound like a mistake to be learned from but perhaps a beer to be brewed over and over again!

A hoppy amber is a great beer to drink. Can take a higher IBU since it's sweeter and maltier. I actually prefer them to IPA's. I would have boosted the OG, but that's me.

sounds like it might be good .....on the beer-wine website it says victory is a specialty grain to be steeped...now the OG how do u bring the OG up or down? and third of all i brewed fri night and there was alot of activity going on in the airlock...came back from skool todqay and it bubbles about every minute...should i start testing the Sg to see if it stays stable or shoud i wait longer or just rack it already to the seconday for some dry hopping? Also shoud i dry hop with fuggles, saaz, or kent golding?

Increase the OG by adding more extract next time.

Just leave the primary alone for a week. Wait till it stops bubbling before racking.
