Homebrewers Outpost Alpine Amber

2.5 gallons water.
1 packet Specialty Grains. (I can tell keeping these recipes is going to be a bit pointless if I don't find out whats in these bags, but I reckon the guys at the shop will tell me.)
Edit: 8oz Crystal 90 and 4oz Special Roast

in a mesh bag, heated to 170F and let to steep (occasionally turning the heat back on to push it back up to 170F) for 10 minutes. Added:

7 lbs. Briess Amber Extract (malt)

stirring, and brought to a rapid boil. Added:
1 oz. Perle hop pellets (Alpha Acid 8.2%)

in a mesh bag. Rapid boil for 55 minutes. Added:

1 oz. Cascade hop pellets (Alpha Acid 6.3%)

in a mesh bag. Rapid boil for 5 minutes. Cooled in an ice bath to ~100F, added cold water to 5 gallons @ 82F. Pitched:
