Anyone have a good clone for Alaskan Amber? I'm starting my first brew in the next week or two...

Thanks!

I have tried this once, but didn't get close. Hoping someone has one that does it justice as my first came out too roasty and not enough IBU's.

My failed attempt:

8.5 lbs 2row
.75 lbs crystal 80L
.75 lbs crystal 120L

FWH - .5 oz Saaz
60 min - .5 oz Cascade
15 min - .5 oz Saaz

Mash Schedule
55C - 15 min
67C - 90 min
76C - 15 min

1054 OG
21 IBU
WLP029 - 3 liter starter
Pitch/ferment at 63F

I'd likely bump up the IBU's and replace the 120 with 100 on my next attempt.
