Cascadian dark ale

Anyone brew one. Our house guest is a home brewer from Olympia Washington and he says that’s what they call the black IPA. Makes more sense to me

I brewed a Wookey Jack clone nearly 3 years ago and it turned out pretty good. I had a few buddies that couldn’t get past the darkness of it but it drank like an IPA to me.

Its one of my Winter beer’s on tap. Its a great beer not overly hoped and still malty and easy drinking

Never brewed one. If you reallly want to mess with people look into Sinamar.

Had to look that up.

So a question then… Can you take the C-60 and C-20 and just use C-120, then knock down the amount used… ? Sneezles61

You could substitute it for that but it won’t give you the same flavor. C-20 is alittle malty mild toffee flavor and c 60 gives a toasted bread and soft caramel flavor. Where c-120 will give you pronounced caramel, burnt sugar and raisiny flavors
