I've used red with great results... I
need to do another full strength soon, been too long!

My LITE version took a 4th place at a small local competition a few months back.

Slight thread revival.

Looking to brew the extract of this in a week or two, but have one question. What are your thoughts on swapping out the crystal 20L with Belgian aromatic? I already have the aromatic and have no plans for it so I was thinking it may work in this.

6lbs Light dry malt extract
1lb wheat dry malt extract
1lb sugar (table, light belgian candy sugar or corn sugar) With out some of the other malts I would suggest a light belgian candy sugar for xtra flavor.
1 lb 20 lvb crystal malt steeped - swap with Aromatic
1/3 lb 80 lvb crystal steeped

needed the extra 1/3 lb 80 lvb crystal to get srm back up.
specs:

OG: 1.067
FG:1.017
IBU:25
SRM:8
ABV:6.5%ing it may work in this.

It'll change the beer a little bit, but not in a bad way I think.

btw... your username... 14 grams per unit?

Great, looks like I've got my next batch set then.

As far as my username... Its actually a high school nickname that just "stuck," pun intended. 14 was the number I wore for basketball and baseball, so not quite 14g per unit :-)

Ahh. I was just curious because my wife uses an insulin pump and when she has it send an extra dose of insulin to counteract the carbs from something she eats, that's called a "bolus".

Brewed the extract version yesterday with my noted modifications. The hydro sample was the best tasting sample of my first 5 brews, I can't wait for this one.

I'm just hoping the yeast doesnt give any clove taste to it, in a spicy manner would be ok I just don't want clove. I really want the citrusy like flavor of the hydro.

My OG was 1.072, a little higher than I wanted or expected. If the yeast chews this down to 05 - 01 then this will end up being around 8%. I would've liked something a little more sessionable, but not complaining.

I've never noticed any clove flavor in mine. Just very citrusy with a little spice and funk to it. The citrus aspect actually reminds me of Fresca, actually. In a good way.

Good to hear, I'm really hoping mine comes out the same.

The water from my starter had a little clove taste to it. Maybe a difference between WY3711 and WLP566?
