8 lbs Pale Malt
1 lb Crystal 20L
1 lb Vienna
1 lb Flaked Wheat
1.25 oz Willamette 60 min.
1 oz Cascade (or Centennial) 10 min
1 oz Cascade (or Centennial) 5 min

I used the recipe as a model. I switched the two row to Maris Otter, added a half ounce of Fuggles as a first wort hop addition, pre boil, and I switched the five minute hop addition to a flame out addition. It turned out to be the best beer I have ever brewed.

The point of my post is to compliment the OP on his grain bill and choice of hops. A recipe that looks good as is and has the room to play a bit. Well balanced choices.

Das Boot !!!

Your success with this recipe has now given me the reason to go ahead and buy a 50 lb sack of Maris Otter next grain shipment in the spring. If it comes out as well as your version I may have to call this Much Much Better Amber Ale.

Thanks for the feedback.

So are you saying that you added a half ounce of fuggles before boil and also used the willamette ?

I never thought about using Fuggles in this recipe so I am curious to hear about how they might complement the Willamette hops.

@MarcusKillion

I used a half ounce of Fuggles as a First wort, pre boil addition. I used the Cascade and Centenial during the boil. I changed the Cascade 5 minute addition to a flame out addition. No Williamette in mine though, but I am intrigued at the thought of some Williamette in this too!

Das Boot !!!

Thanks for updloading this recipe. I was looking for a good porter to Finnish with bourbon chips. This maybe the one.

Cheers!
