I wouldn't use 4 Kg of potatoes, you might have a bit of trouble getting it to clear. The other additions are going to make it very rich. Just a thought, as you like Simpson's, have you tried their Imperial malt? In my opinion it's excellent.

Potatoes on my mind for some damn reason. You know what I mean though.

Don't think this thread went the way Leard wanted, he's getting a bit roasted for his mistake :(

I've not made or drunk an american style amber for ages so I'm not too sure. It'll certainly have a lot of malt flavours though with that grainbill. I imagine that is what you want though? I like an assertive bitterness to most of my beers and I'd probably aim for about 60-70 ibus for that beer so it would probably need more bittering hops for me . Personal taste though

I'd brew it then adjust it if you brew it again if you think it needs it
