So crystal does add sweetness? Okay. That helps. I know I've made batches of Bitter with more crystal, but a higher lovibond, and it doesn't taste inordinately sweet. I was thinking perhaps the low lovibond malt had a particular flavor that wasn't agreeing with me.

Oh, I thought I posted those ##s, and now I'm on another 'puter.

It says the OG should be 1.053, and 42.3 IBUs. I don't know ProMash well enough (I'm still working on the trial version) to figure out your FG, although 1.012 doesn't strike me as especially high. Don't know what to tell you, maybe you just have an over-developed sense of sweet!

...could be. I'm my worst critic when it comes to brewing.

Yeah, was that 1.012 the actual hydrometer reading? Because many of my ales stick around 1.020, and they don't taste sweet to me. I think you're just too sensitive to sweetness...perhaps. But I still don't know how a grain like crystal, regardless of the lovi rating, would add sweetness to a brew, unless it's not being fermented for some strange reason.
