Yooper brewed and consumed a 5g batch of this. It was excellent in every way. I even had a moth land in the wort as I was chilling it, and it still came out great. Thanks for posting. Cheers.

Hey Yoop, Brewed this a couple months ago and just tapped it tonight. Followed your recipe exactly and it was excellent. Best amber ever. Not to heavy on the malt like most ambers and the higher AAU content balanced it perfectly. A new favorite for sure.. Thanks again..

NOOB here, so forgive me, but I can't find this recipe in Beersmith? Any help would be appreciated.

And, BTW Yooper, I think I could just brew your recipes and be happy for a long time. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the answer on PM Yooper!

Can I just use 100% RO water and add some salts to adjust. Again, this is my 2nd brew & 1st AG so I'm trying to simplify vs. figuring out my tap water chemistry.

If so, what do you recommend I add.

Yes, you could do that.

I normally take the "less is more" approach, and for this beer I would use 3 grams each of calcium sulfate (gypsum) and calcium chloride in a total of 7 gallons for the boil in a 5 gallon batch.

That would get you about 58 ppm of calcium, 63 of sulfate, and 55 of chloride. Pretty balanced, and enough calcium for good yeast health.

Wow, this looks good and surprisingly similar grain bill to my current (Red IPA) I have on dry hop. A malty amber with a nice balance of hop and dry hop sounds awesome to me.

I just brewed this again, also for a wedding. Since the groom is a hophead, I added dryhops of 1 oz each Centennial and Cascade. Very much anticipated!
