I have 6 lb of amber lme I need to get rid of. Can I sub it for the extra lt Dme in this recipe? If so how will it change the taste?

You'll get a much darker beer if you use amber LME. You could still certainly use the regular hop schedule and come out with a "Centennial Amber" instead of a blond. But I think it's going to be a redder and more caramelly beer than the clear & crisp taste of the original.
However I did a little searching and found this suggestion "You could steep 4 oz of chocolate malt, then add 6 lbs of the amber LME, and ~22-23 IBUs worth of Fuggles hops to make a nice Northern English Brown." from this thread:
And here's an "Imperial Amber Ale" with honey that looks interesting... like a stronger (and differently hopped) version of the White House Honey Ale, maybe. Weird.

Brewed this yesterday (5-gal) as my first attempt at all-grain. Fermenting like mad right now. Will post pic and feedback when done. It smells great so far.

I thought about scaling this back about 10% due to my efficiency being high each time I've brewed, but I decided to just go with it. Well, ended up at 1.048, but it looks so nice and golden!

Brewed this a week ago yesterday and went to rack to a keg yesterday. The beer was still very cloudy so I opted to rack to another carboy and cold crash. Took a gravity sample and it read 1.006 after a week on mingling with US05. Hopefully it won't be too dry.

In the process of brewing this now. No Irish Moss on hand but oh well - hope it won't be too murky. Sure it'll be tasty either way - first batch I brewed of this was great!

Just cracked my first of this recipe after two weeks in the bottle and 48 hours in the fridge. Crystal clear with a beautiful, snow white head and the color of sunshine - delicious, clean flavor and utterly impossible to quaff just one. Thus batch isn't going to last long at all. I can't wait to serve this to unsuspecting BMC drinkers. I foresee a strawberry version next summer. What a great recipe!
