Here's what's in there:
steeped: 8oz Crystal 60l
4oz Roasted Barley
Extract*: 4 lbs Light DME
3 lbs Amber DME
(*Added w/ 20 min left to 3 gallon boil)
Hops: 1 oz millenium, 15%aa (60 min)
1/2 oz East Kent Goldings, 5%aa (20 min)
1/2 oz East Kent Goldings, 5%aa (3 min)
[Planned: dry hopping, 1 oz fuggles (depending on availability) for 1-2 weeks]
I won't really know until it's done, but what style(s) of ale do you think this recipie might approach? I had originally planned to go with challenger or northern brewer for bittering, but the brew supply I went to had neither. I am not sure what style of beer Millenium hops are usually used in. Also I am worried that the 4 oz of roasted barley may be a bit much from what I have been reading. My roomate and I had wanted to make a red ale, but I think the choice of bittering hop and the use of roasted barley (maybe should have gone toasted instead?) were deviations from the classic style.
I'm sure it will still taste good; if we can't classify it, we'll just name it and brew it again.
