    Wanting to brew up a red IPA using some Voyager munich and voyager amber that i have on hand.

    Not sure how much Amber is too much % wise.

    I'm thinking:
    Ale - 73%
    Voyager Munich - 18.2%
    Voyager Amber - 4.0%
    Dark Crystal - 4.0%
    Roast Barley (steeped) - 0.7%

    OG: 1.071
    IBU: 70 (All whirlpool)
    SRM: 14.3

    Thoughts? I've never used amber malt before and Voyager info says to use sparingly!

    Sparingly to me would be 5% max.

    Yes. Your software should predict the final colour, does that grainbill give u the colour you want?
