Well, tomorrow is a brew day, hooray! I'm going to cook up a strong winter ale to be bottled and mostly be given as christmas presents. Anyway, I found a recipe that looked good, but I wanted it to strengthen it up a bit in the alcohol department. The recipe called for 6# of amber LME and 1# of amber DME. A guy at my LHBS instructed me that I should add 2# of super light LME, so I will. I didn't think to ask until I got home, but should I change anything else to balance out the change in taste from adding a bit of extra malt? The recipe calls for 1.5 oz of cluster hops (60 min.), .75 oz chinook (15 min.), and .75 oz hallertau (5 min.). The chinook and hallertau were only sold in 1 oz packets, so should I maybe add the full ounce of each? What would you fine folks do here?
