I spent most of 8 hours last Sunday mashing 13 lbs of grain for a Helles Bock through 4 temperature rests, sparging the grain and then boiling for 90 minutes and cooling wort for an hour while cleaning (most of it) up.
I miss the simpler times.
OTOH, I just opened a 3-week old bottle of a quickie extract Honey-Lemon lawnmower beer made with K-97 "Kolsch" yeast. That simple little recipe thrown in at the end of a bigger brew day yielded a really great beer. I know it's a hit because my wife took the glass from me after I gave her a sample.
120 will work, but is very dark. It will provide some sweetness and some dark fruit/raisin flavors. Carahell is just the brand name for Weyermann's Caramel 10 (same as crystal 10). There's no point in putting C10 in with C120 as it won't provide much, but added sweetness. I gave some recommendations in my answer to your initial post above.
thanks josh. What specialty malts would compliment this recipe then ? I have some caramel 120 I need to use up if that would work. Might be a little too dark a grain? Also some carahell but don't think it will match the flavour profile.
