3 lbs amber dry malt
1 lb light dry malt

.5 oz magnum @60
.5 oz warrior @60
1.5 oz magnum @5
.5 oz warrior @5
2 oz centennial @0

safale us-04 (english ale)

og 1.060

I'd use light dry extract instead of the amber then add my own specialty grains to get the kind of character I would have from the amber extract.

thanks denny.  that's really what my plan was going to be, but the homebrew corner only had 3 lbs of extra light and the amber and dark, so i grabbed an amber to go with the pound of light i had leftover from last beer.

i didn't have a particular style in mind, but i know i have some special roast.  how much would you use?  would some biscuit mixed in be good or bad, you think?

I would go with a half pound each of biscuit and special roast to point you toward a hopped up American Brown Ale.

i ended up using 3/4 lbs special roast and 3/4 lbs biscuit.  plugged it into brew pal and it came up pretty close to an english ipa, just a couple ibu too high.

thanks!

do you think 9 days in primary with no secondary would be too soon to bottle?  that would be, brewed on the 29th and bottled on the 7th?

You could probably get away with that, but do a gravity reading first starting at day six.

I think you need to let the beer decide on the schedule...

as euge has indicated...check the gravity after 6 or 7 days, then on the 8th and 8th day. If it remains unchanged then I recommend letting the beer sit another couple days to condition and then bottle.
