American Brown Ale recipe, thoughts?
I'm planning to brew this one soon. My hope is that it will turnout something similar to Bear Republic's Peter Brown Tribute Ale. The only info they give on the website is IBUs 21, ABV 6.3%, that it's brewed with molasses and brown sugar, and the hops are Centennial and Cascade. I plan to use unsulfured molasses (no blackstrap). Let me know if you see any potential issues.

Well if anyone cares, I brewed this on Tuesday (8/27) and it's rolling along quite well in the fermenter. Missed my OG by a few points but other than that everything went well. Will try to remember to post results in a month or two.
that looks tasty
I did something like that and it was good. I have liked a more complex malt bill better, though. Layer some crystals (I like 80), or use amber/brown. Actually it should be pretty good with the brown sugar and molasses. My favorite BA malt bill uses amber, brown sugar, very little caramel, and chocolate malt.
Brewed something similar that I'm just starting to drink:
3.0 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row)
4.0 lbs Amber LME
0.5 lbs Caramel - 80L
0.25 lbs Chocolate Malt
0.5 lbs Brown Sugar
1.0 oz Kent Goldings [5.20 %] - Boil 60 min
0.5 oz Kent Goldings [5.20 %] - Boil 10 min
Nottingham dry yeast
Fermented at 64F, one week; 68F, two weeks
Bottled and conditioned 4 weeks
May still be a little green but a noticable lack of body. Would like to brew this again using Williamette hops and Carapils. How much Carapils is recommended? 4 oz?
One of my best brown ales was just using left overs.
6 lb American two row pale
2 lbs crystal 60
1 lb brown sugar
8 oz. Belgian Caramunich
6 oz. Belgian Special B
1 oz Cascade 30 minutes
1 oz. Centennial 10 minutes
.5 oz. Willamette 10 minutes
1 oz. Centennial dry hop for 7 days
WLP051 California Ale V
Just kegged & dry hopped this. The sample is pretty darn good. There's a chocolate hit to it at first and then a slight molasses flavor comes through but none of the flavors are overpowering or dominating. I would even say they complement each other pretty well. I managed to get a bit of yeast in the sample so it's not the clearest but I think this is going to be a good one.
I'm loving the 1272 American Ale II yeast, btw. I've done a pale ale and an IPA with it and now this and I really like the flavor the yeast adds.
any update on this? i'm trying out a few angles with brown ales and i'd love to hear how the developed.
