No, not really. What kind of beer are you calling this? English Old? I made an english old without the roasted barley with a very similar grain profile...but then again, the English Old recipes I found online were literally ALL over the place so I kinda had to wing it.
I even used brown sugar at flameout too! I mashed pretty high though 156, and there was plenty of crystal 120, so I figure the sugar will help dry it out a touch....
First Brew was thanksgiving 2011, I'm at 70 batches and counting (as of 2/11/2014), and ran out of room in my signature to list them all.
