    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 :(

    The roasting is deserved, somewhat. Would like some actual feedback as well though!

    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
