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

added:
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.
