Default Thoughts on My first designed recipe....

Remember first I am new to AG, so if my recipe looks to be all jacked up please remember that. I have a pale ale:

9lbs 12oz Pale Malt(2row)
2lbs 8oz Caramel/Crystal Malt-40

.75 oz warrior 60 min
.50 oz Amarillo 10 min
.50 oz Amarillo 5 min

Whirlfloc tab 15 min

WL001

Est OG 1.058
Est FG 1.014
Est ABV 5.7%
40.7 IBU's
SRM of 11
Est efficiency of 72%

It seems simple therefore it probably is but can anyone tell me if my recipe is flawed?

That is way too much crystal. I would use about .5 lbs. Other than that it looks pretty good.

A lot of people are going to say drop the crystal to a lb or less. Replace it with more 2row, Munich, Vienna etc.

I would also add some dry hops, prob 1.5-2 oz.

Instead of using 2row use pale ale malt
and cut the crystal down to under 20%

Right, I recommend pale ale malt cause
it will give the beer more of an ale character then 2row.

Cheers..

Good choice!

This should make a good beer
or at the very least it's starter recipe thet you can
fine tune and adjust as you go a long.

I say go for it!!

Good Luck

Tim
