I want to show my dad how to brew using the Partial Mashing method, but am having a hard time finding an amber recipe. I would prefer that he do an IPA, but he would rather have an amber. So....anyone have any good recommendations?

Greg

Yeah, do the Jamil Red Rocket clone and just substitute 6 pounds light DME for 10lbs of his two-row. http://www.beerdujour.com/Recipes/Ja...AleExtract.htm

Red Rocket is like half amber and half IPA. If you follow that recipe and boil less than 6 gallons, it will be less bitter of course, but probably where your dad wants it.

Here's the same thing in an extract-only http://www.beerdujour.com/Recipes/Ja...anAmberAle.htm

I'd second that suggestion. It's next on my list to brew in fact. My GF absolutely loves the original, and that's a big motivator as well.

looks pretty good but your color seems to be off. I think it's because your only doing 5 gallons when the original is a 6 gallon batch.
I think you may want to either increase your batch size to 6 gal and up the DME a little or decrease the specialty malts to be closer to the percentages in the original recipe. The way it is now, your a good 2-5% higher than the recipe states for specialty grain ratio. That would probably account for the color difference and will likely change the flavor some.

Also, I don't use beersmith, but if I'm reading your mash schedule right your strike water is too hot. I'd go with 165-167 dF strike water and adjust by stirring or adding a bit more hot water to get to 152 dF mash temp.
Good luck
