Default Toasty Biscuit Beer

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: California Ale WP001
Yeast Starter: N/A
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: N/A
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.061
Final Gravity: 1.014
IBU: 31
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 17 L
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Additional Fermentation: N/A
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Tasting Notes: Toasty, Balanced, Full-bodied

So, this is a recipe I made up with the intent of having a full-flavored beer that wasn't over-bearing, too intense on the ABV and would be good to just kick back at the end of a long day and enjoy. I have to say, I am REALLY pleased with the results. Recipe is as follows:

MALTS:
4# - 2-row
4# - Maris Otter
1# - Biscuit
1# - Carafoam
8oz - 120L
8oz - Honey Malt
8oz - Melanoidin
2oz - Chocolate (mostly for color, darken it up a little)

HOPS:
1oz - Crystal (60 minutes)
1.5oz - Cascade (30 minutes)

YEAST:
1 vial - White Labs California Ale WP001

FERMENTATION:
7 days in primary
14 days in secondary

No bottle conditioning, once it was carbed I got to drinkin. It's pretty damn good I think. I'll be entering this one in competitions for sure. Best brew I've done yet; hope you like it. Let me know how yours turns out should you decide to brew it.

For the record, I posted it in Scottish and Irish ales as I took an Irish red recipe, modded it pretty severely and Brewpal doesn't fit it into one category, and since I am Irish, and I made the recipe up, I deem it to be Irish in nature. It's actually an Extra Special Bitter American Amber Wiezenbock Old Ale. But, who's keeping track aside from brew pal.....

Just brewed this today. It was my first solo project. I followed the grain bill to the letter but upped the hop amounts just a little. The boil looked like a copper penny which was just what I was going for. Thanks for the solid recipe!
