Use water from the toilet.

Use water from the toilet for the dirty blonde and use Brawndo for the dumb blonde? NICE!!!

A mix of light and dark Crystal might do the trick. Since you need 4 oz of Caravienne for this recipe, maybe 3 oz of Crystal 20, and 1 oz of Crystal 120 just for a little extra caramel kick. It won't be identical, but could work in a pinch, especially since the Caravienne is so low. 20 will give the sweetness, and 120 the caramel/malt.

Caravienne is a crystal malt colored about 22-24°L so crystal 20 is pretty damn close and I don't think it's worth trying to blend two different crystal malts, but if you did I wouldn't use anything as dark as 120. It's not like half 20 half 150 gives you 85, they are largely different flavors. It would be like mixing a light roast coffee and an espresso roast, you don't get medium roast from that.

This brew is pretty much about the yeast flavor isn't it? I bottled some that wouldn't fit in the secondary and tried it young. Nice aroma cold but little flavor, which came out as it warmed up.

Is using a secondary for the beer after 2 weeks still advised? I have had this going in the primary for 16 days now and have read many posts in other parts of the forum that using a secondary is not really needed and can become a problem. This is the first batch of this recipe I have made so I would like to make sure I don't screw it up at thios point.
