Awesome.

I have tried my own amber with Crystal 60L and a lot of it.

Would you mind critiquing mine and perhaps help make suggestions on the recipe?

I like yourf idea of using syrup... as well as the mixture of hops.

I brewed this with a pouch of D-45 instead of the sugar and it came out great.

I tried it with S-04 at around 62 degrees. Went with .5oz at 60 and .5oz at 30 on the chinook. I am shooting for a little less dry with the S-04 vs. S-05. Will let you know how it turns out!

When you're making the candy recipe, don't forget to adjust the temperatures if you live at altitude! See my post here:

I did the same with the hop reduction, but first wort hopped and stuck with S-05. She's in the bucket around 66F right now.

my 10 day gravity reading was 1.020, still has a bit to go I think but tastes very clean, obviously still a little sweet, hops certainly not overpowering.

What is the White labs equivalent of S-05 suggested in the original post of this recipe?

Hello I chose this as my first all grain it was so much fun everything went smoothly I did 2 batch sparges ended up with 7.75gal preboil. 5.5 gal went into fermenter at an og of1.050 can't believe how those numbers worked out perfect. I ran a efficiency calculator and looks like 78%. That was based on OG fermenter volume.

I chose not to make the syrup although I hope to someday could not find affordable beet sugar our local brew store has premade Belgian candy amber syrup

Airlock is bubbling away
