1.9 0.13 lbs. Biscuit Malt Belgium 1.035 24
1.9 0.13 lbs. Chocolate Malt America 1.029 350


I am browsing my LHB online store and have found comparatively close ingredients. the site is http://www.beernut.com/zen-cart/ and have found the following goodies.

1. 6.0 lbs coopers light malt extract (LME)
2. 1/2 lb Dingman's Cara 45. (caramel malt) from your recipe
3. .13 lb Dingman's Biscuit Malt
4. .13 lb Dingman's Chocolate Malt
5. 1oz EK Goldings Hops
6. 1oz Willamet Hops

I am missing the 1/2 lb special roast malt Americas and they don't have the WYeast 1272 American Ale II.

They have white labs stuff in ales. should i go with the Irish Ale Yeast or the California ale yeast? And what can I do with the missing americas malts
Use the irish ale yeast. The missing malt will leave out the roasted taste. Not a bad change but it won't be the same.

So I eneded up using willamente for both hops additions, will this screw up the taste?? Also they didnt have LME only Extra LME, how will this effect the beer? thanks.
The hops will not change it much if you add the right amount. If the alfa acid of the hop is way different it can change the ibu or effect the bitterness. As for the malt the beer will be lighter in taste.

will this significantly change the profile of the beer?
Special B will make it taste quite different. It will have a raison-like taste to it afterwards. Thats not necessarily bad. Just different.

Use five oz of corn sugar to prime.

It carbed up pretty fast, and has now been in there about 2 weeks. The beer tastes very sweet when I try it... almost yeasty, but I cannot really tell. Do you just think that it needs to settle a bit more in the keg before it is good and ready?
Your problem is that 62f was too cold. Its sweet because it wasn't done fermenting. Now that is carbbed its alittle late to do much of anything.

Well..... Rethinking this.

You could yank it from the fridge, let warm up, siphon back to a fermenter, after a few days repitch some yeast. It can't tell you how it will turn out after all of that. Id do that rather than drink sweet beer.

thanks for the update, ended up going back and getting caraamber instead - LHBS didnt have special roast, victory or biscuit at the time but they said this would work best

2 weeks fermenting so far, took a FG today, 1.012, the same as it was after checking at 1 week

taste is coming along nicely, looking forward to tasting the fully conditioned beer for st patricks day

thanks again

how does the flavor come through after a month conditioning? Don't get me wrong I like it now at three weeks, but I would deff like a little more malt flavor to come through, will I notice more in the next couple weeks?

You might notice a little more malt flavor, as the late hop addition starts to fade. It will continue up to a point. Odds will be that it won't last long enough for that to occurr, so make more.
