rebooting this again. going back to cascade and centennial combo. considering a more ipa water profile to boost bitterness? not sure....

adjusting volumes, efficiencies, etc. adding acid malt for ph.

i like continuing with the english yeast idea

could consider doing a small dry hop, 1-2 ounces. especially if no water profile it will be less sharp so might could use a little more hop boost.

ok well yet again this will not turn out like the original.....brewed this on 10/28. took pre boil gravity at 1.055 but forgot to take OG. based on that i am adjusting the recipe here to get to 1055 pre boil gravity and adjsuting the volumes. also on brew day i was missing cascade so i substituted with tahoma which im predicting to be kind of citrusey? maybe not fitting for amber ale but oh well.

note to self. might have discrepency with water profile versus whats coming from my tap. predicted 5.53 but measured 5.32.

before these changes, on brew day this recipe was sitting at :
pre boil size 7 gal
post boil size (not set)
batch size fermenter 5
efficiency 64%
pre boil SG 1.047
post boil OG 1.065
for a 6.6% abv
resurrecting this old one. keep in mind i brewed it a 2nd time with adjustments (called his shoe broke) but i remember it being subpar. going back to this recipe. will try to do some work on the water profile (for malty? or hoppy?)
everything else looks fine actually. it maybe could use a little more hops but also for amber ale its probably fine like this. there were notes in the other recipe about mashing a little higher. maybe like 152 or 153? needs some research for confirmation. could maybe use rva manchester also since ill be using it for another brew.
initial recipe notes 12/7/18 : referenced bells amber ale recipe from brew your own december 2018. im reading the victory has higher diastatic power than munich so im going to use more of that. aiming for about 6% and 45 IBU using magnum cascade and centennial based on this amazing beer i had while in california last weekend called daylight by track 7 brewing in sacramento.
