Hoosier, I was going to use Golden Promise instead of Marris but the Marris got me closer to Amber color range rather than adjusting the dark or crystal malts. That's why I used Marris Otter..but you got me thinking!
Maybe I'll brew two versions one with Marris and one with GP
***Water treatment what's that! LOL
Actually I just buy 50% spring water/ 50% dispensed RO water
And brew like that 50/50 I want to get into water treatment very soon though...
Blatz, thanks as well...
Marris Otter.. I recently brewed a Pumpkin Ale minus the pumkin and the spice's.. Lol I couldn't bring myself to add pumkin or spice to a beer. Leave that for pies...LOL .. So I faked out my friends and said It brewed it with pumkin and spices....I know I know I'm EVIL...
I had a commercial pumkin Ale that's supposed to be good..umm I almost barfed..hence why I couldn't ruin a batch of beer...
My fake pumkin Ale:
Marris Otter, base Malt, 86%
Crytsal 40, 5%
Flaked barley, 7%
American chocolate, 2%
My family and friends can't get enough of it ..i love it...that's why. Decided to go with Marris Otter on this Amber as well as well as the color contribution although Golden Promise is soooo Goood too! Hmmm choices!
I'm gonna seriously think about bumping the carastan Malt maybe to 12% so maybe 1.125 lbs and keep everything else same. ..
I'm already tasting the beer recipe in my mind I think it looks like it will be a tasty brew!
So that's it you guys wouldn't change anything else ?
Well you guys are amazing as always!
I'll check back in a bit..I'm in CA. So its 8:32pm
