  1. Similar to one I just did (and I really like it):

    # Grains: 12 oz 60L Crystal Malt
    # 1 oz Black Malt

    # Extracts: 6 lbs Light DME

    # Hops: 9 HBUs Northern Brewer (Bittering)
    # 1/2 oz Cascade (Flavor)
    # 1/4 oz Saaz (Aroma)

    # Yeast: British Ale Yeast

  2. Yours is probably a bit lighter than mine, right? With the light extract vs. the amber I used?

    You probably have a little more hop complexity as well. On the hops side, mine is a bit mild and feels like it’s missing something.
