A few days ago I kegged the extract version that I brewed, and force carbonated it. I took a taste last night. It is fantastic!

A quick question for Schlenkerla, or anyone else who may know: is there a major difference between the extract and AG version?

They are pretty close. I have always played with hops so its never 100% the same. Not mention I use some homegrown hops for this most of time.

Thanks. I do the same thing when I brew. Always tinkering.

I primarily do mashes, but I like to keep some really good extract recipes handy in case I'm pressed for time. I'll definitely keep this one because it's excellent, but I want to try the mash version.

By the way I used Amarillo hops in the batch that I brewed. If you haven't tried using them in this recipe, you should as soon as possible!

I'll be brewing this in the coming weeks as an amber option for my wedding rehearsal dinner. Gonna probably go for the 25IBU, to make a more crowd-friendly beer.

I might have some vienna laying around already, so if I can't get my hands on some munich, I might have to sub it out.

Also have a pound of cascade pellets I've been looking to use. Thanks!

Wanted to brew this next and I have only light Munich on hand. Any issue with that? I was thinking off lowering the c40 a bit and using some darker crystal to correct for color. I also have some aromatic malt and wondered if that would help give it some good malty aroma/flavor

Here's what I'm thinking for a recipe. Anyone tell me if anything looks out of place?

7 lbs 2 row
2 lbs Light Munich
1 lb crystal 40
0.75 lbs crystal 60
0.5 lbs carapils
0.25 lbs aromatic malt

Mash at 156

1.25 oz cascade at 60
1.00 oz cascade at 10
1.00 oz cascade at flameout

Yeast: wyeast 1056 with 1L starter (on a stir plate)

Sound good?

Also, I think I'm going to add 1 oz of chocolate malt for color

I saw this the other day, I want to give you an answer but I've been drinking.... ..... Let me think about it and back to you. OK?

No problem, and to throw another wrench in it, I only have 3.5 lbs of 2 row left so I was going to use that plus 3.5 lbs of golden promise. I gotta get some more base malt!

I'd go with this, as the grain bill is very similar to my original version.
