Ok...I emailed Tallgrass Brewery to get their Tallgrass Ale recipe and they gave it to me. Now my problem is that I need someone to help me come up with an extract recipe...Any help would be great. Here is what he gave me:

Thanks for drinking Tallgrass! I am glad you enjoy our beers. I think session beers, just good beers that you can enjoy with friends all evening, are few and far between. With Tallgrass Ale we use the 1098 Wyeast strain to let the malt shine through, with Perle for smooth, but not much bittering. Fuggles and Willamette for finish hops right at the end of the boil for surprising complexity. You would use about 2/3 lbs Crystal 80 and Vienna and 1/3 lbs Victory and Chocolate for a 5 gallon batch. Enjoy!

that leaves out the base malts. they're just giving you the specialty grains, which is probably no more than 15-20% of the recipe, at most

what are the base malts here? It seems that he gave you the hops, yeast, and specialty grains, but what about your fermentables?

Just figure the base malt to the OG for the beer. Your not going to get a lot of fermentables from those grains. Marris Otter for the malt seems to be a good choice for this beer.

Well, with that said, can someone help me put together a recipe? I am dumb when it comes to putting recipes together.

Here is what I came up with in Beer Smith. I did not add the vienna or victory in your steeping grains because they require a mash to convert. I also used pale LME because the amber just adds crystal malt most of the time and you are already steeping it. It's been a long time since I've done an extract recipe so others please feel free to add anything.

A partial mash isn't difficult. At 70% efficiency, you'll get around 1.046 OG from this:


Fermentables
Ingredient Amount % MCU When
US 2-Row Malt 1lb 0oz 13.3 % 0.3 In Mash/Steeped
US Vienna Malt 11.00 oz 9.2 % 0.5 In Mash/Steeped
US Caramel 80L Malt 11.00 oz 9.2 % 10.4 In Mash/Steeped
US Chocolate Malt 5.00 oz 4.2 % 20.7 In Mash/Steeped
US Victory Malt 5.00 oz 4.2 % 1.7 In Mash/Steeped
Extract - Light Liquid Malt Extract 4lb 8oz 60.0 % 2.9 Start Of Boil

Perhaps you could e-mail back and get the extract recipe from them. I believe the guy that owns Tallgrass was a home brewer too at one time and they would perhaps be understanding.

Get the hop schedule for Oasis while you are at it.
