I've been looking at that Mosher recipe for a long time and wondered how it would come out. I love hopped up ambers and reds- my guess is this is very similar in malt depth to a West Coast Amber Ale?

Yeah, the grain bill is great. West coast amber/red is right on. I notched back the black malt to not end up too dark.

Everything I love about malt in one beer. I have a friend who did the exact recipe from Radical Brewing (with cascade and goldings) and it was very good.Much less in your face... I simply prefer NW hops in my face! especially in hoppier beers.

You would swear there was some victory or biscuit in the recipe, but its just the harmony of the Pale, Munich and Crystal.

I recommend this grain bill for any amber/red.

Anyway, I made the IRA from page 88 of Radical Brewing, and there is a type for the PM version... says to use 6.5 lbs DME which is obviously false, but it was my first brew so I was paying attention to the letter of the recipe at the expense of common sense. I would scale it back to 4lbs DME next time... it ended up with a bit of extra alcohol and a big malty mouthfeel that was almost too much.

The taste and hop impact are fantastic though... the head on this beer lasts forever.

Have to check my notes, but I believe it was 1.075?
