Thanks Kapbrew. I'm using a new propane burner so I don't have a good feel for the boil off rate yet. I'll guesstimate and take notes for future brews.

So use this as your test brew. Use 7 pre boil water I picked this number because I use to do 6.5 and now 7.5. So in between nothing complicated.

It's more related to your rate of boil and size of pot.
It's not a huge deal though, you can always top off or boil longer.

Sounds good. I'll go with 7 and keep notes. I'm a big fan of amber ales so am looking forward to this one.

Good luck. This is a great amber. Made mine with D2 because I have a bunch on hand.

OG and FG are in the OP:

Original Gravity: 1.050
Final Gravity: 1.010

Just ordered everything to make this. Really looking forward to it.

Now I need to burn through some pipeline to have room... Cheers!

I have been enjoying my batch of this. Really really good.
However, I screwed up and scaled all my grains for 85% efficiency, not just my base game. So it's not quite malty as I would like, but it's still very tasty.

I have posed a question in another thread and gotten no help. I came upon this thread while doing some research on my issue. Basically, I ordered mixed grains for a Rye Stout but accidentally ordered way too much caramunich (56L), and the grains are already mixed. I've adjusted the recipe by scaling up a bit and adding more dark malts to compensate, but I'm still at 17% caramel malt. To fix, should I add sugar (cane? brown? what percent?), mash low (148?), or both? I thought I might get an answer since you're using lots of caramel and still drying things out well.

I like your propaganda for Ambers--I just brewed one today and will have to try this one sometime soon!
