Hey All -
I'm looking for a little feed back on an Amber Ale recipe I'm putting together. I am looking to make a simple, sessionable amber that has medium hop aromas/flavors. My grain bill looks like this:
7.5 lbs of Light LME
1 lb of Crystal 40L
.5 lbs of CaraPils (wanting good head retention and to add body. I have never used carapils before, is this enough/too much to get the desired effect?)
Also, any other specialty grains that I could add into the grain bill to make this more flavorful?
Additionally, I am planning on using strictly cascade hops for bittering, flavoring and aroma (2 oz at 60, 1 oz at 30, .5 oz at F.O). Is using cascade hops all the way through a good idea? Any other suggestions instead of cascade hops?
The yeast I have decided on is the Wyeast 1056 American Ale. Any other suggestions on yeast choice?
I put the recipe through Brewtarget and got the following:
Any suggestions are welcome. Again, I know its a pretty simple recipe but looking to see if anyone has suggestions on how to spice this up to get a nice amber ale everyone can enjoy.
