Hello everyone,

I am planning an 'IPA' using 3kg of liquid malt extract, 1.0kg of dryed spraymalt approximately 100-120 fuggles or styrain hops and dried brewers yeast with Harris pure brew. I normally brew with 1.5kg of LME 500g demera sugar various hops and dried yeast making very drinable beers. Will my 'IPA' be to malty if so what can I do to counter it, I have read that 500g of crystal malt would help.

Happy brewing

I'd use munich instead of crystal to get malty. Or some melanoiden.
I'm just here for the beer.
