I am a beginner. I made a great coopers English Bitter, got a Austin Homebrew southern brown going good so far. I'm ready to experiment now but I'm not sure I understand yet. I read several recipies and chaged them around. I like most all beer but love most brown ales. Does this recipie ingredients make sense or should I hit the books more?...
4lb of unhopped Munich (Dark Briess malted barley liquid extract)
2lb of unhopped light (liquid extract)
1/4lb WeyermannŽ CaraMunich III
(Results in increased fullness, heightened malt aroma, full, round flavor and deep, saturated color.)
1/4lb Briess Crystal Malt
(Produces Caramel, Slight Burnt Sugar, Raisiny flavors.)
1/4lb Muntons Crystal Malt 60L - 1 oz
(impart its distinctive 'nutty' flavor and as a general enriching agent in beers.)
1/4lb Dingemans Special
(heavy caramel taste and is often credited with the raisin-like flavors dark fuller body)
1lbs corn sugar
1/2lb malto Dextin
1/2lb Lactos Sugar
Hops (not a big hop person that I know of yet)
1 oz fuggle
1 oz Kent Holding
Some kinda ale yeast
Shooting for an easy to drink dark slightly sweet mid body ale but I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm one of those people that has to touch a hot stove a few times.
Anything sound wrong? Would you make it?
