send it to me! I can always use more extract! (j/k). What about a really simple SMaSH with your amber extract for an OG of about 1.050, and the "c" hops of your choice for about 30-40 IBU? Technically it would not be a TRUE SMaSH, because amber extract likely has more than one malt type in it, but it would be uber-easy and probably pretty tasty.

Pale Ales, IPAs, Stouts, Porters, Browns, Reds, etc. Anything that has added speciality grains. Just remember amber malt has some crystal in it, so whatever recipe you follow, reduce the crystal malt a little. I can't give you a number, but you might try reducing the crystal by between 4 and 8 ozs for a 5 gallon batch.

1.5 oz of Northern Brewer hops? That's high IBUs for a sweet stout.

I like the recipe though!

I try to hit about 40IBU's, so I think you are right, that it is a little high. Last time I used 1oz @ 10% AA.

Edit: That([email protected]%AA) may have been a partial boil now that I think about it.

Here's what I have in the house from previous batches at the moment. I am going to the store but I'm wondering if I can get away with most of this in one recipe.

I have 23# of amber lme
1oz of Bullion
1oz of Hallertau

1272 American II yeast

I don't mind adding stuff but I'd rather not waste what I've got.

Major goals:
1. Tastes good
2. Doesn't kill or paralyze the drinker
3. I don't really have a number three.
