Marmadillo Amber ale
Canadian honey malt 0.50 lb, Steeped 160 f 30 mins
UK Crystal 64L 1.00 lb, Steeped 160 f 30 mins
Crystal 120L 0.50 lb, Steeped 160 f 30 mins
Light D.M.E. 3.00 lb.
3 gallon boil - hops were:
Centennial 1.00 oz, Pellet, 60 minutes
Mt. Hood 0.50 oz, Pellet, 30 minutes
Willamette 0.50 oz, Pellet, 10 minutes
Light malt extract 4.0 lb. at flameout
Honey 0.5 lb. at flameout
I dry hopped with 1/2 oz each Willamette and Mt. Hood 11 days.
This went in the fermenter a bit hot (I as in a slight rush!) maybe 75 f or so. As a result the beer tasted not so good after 2 weeks bottle conditioning but after 5 weeks the beer turned out just great! A nice change from my normally very hopped ales. I am definitely brewing this again - probably all grain next time.
