Just got back some score sheets from a recent competition, and one said I had the beginnings if a great beer, just need to tweak the recipe. It was a cream ale kit from NB that I added fresh ginger to. Recipe is :
6lb Pilsen dme, 4 oz biscuit malt, 12 oz honey malt, 1oz cluster at 60 minutes.
So would substituting wheat for the pils would give it a more malty flavor? I also have some fawcet crystal 1... Maybe a pound or so? And hops, too. What would complement the Ginger?
I'm also all-grain now and looking to learn. Is there a way I could mash this(the original recipe) to get the results I want?
