Got to be a nut brown ale. I love Sam smith's nut brown and this one is right up there. Thanks Lil Sparkey.

That being said, I'm happiest with my Amber Wheat ale.
Do you have this recipe posted anywhere?

Out of the 10 or so brewer's best kits I've done the Summer Ale was the biggest hit with friends. I liked it so much myself I've been playing with the ingredients a tad to get my own version going

So is your version an all grain or extract version? If it is an all grain would you mind sending me or posting the recipe? I enjoy drinking summer ales all the year round.

brewer's best kits are extracts... so I stuck with that idea.

I don't have a tun or any type of setup to do all grain. I used a different Briess malt extract in both than what came in the kit box.

Easily, Tasty McDole's Janet's Brown Ale that I have on tap right now. It has everything I want in a beer and the flavors keep melding together with every pull. I better get a head start and brew up another batch of this ASAP.

The Black IPA I just made I wanted to slap my face it was so delicious without carbonation! Dang bottles got to wait for carbonation.

my last extract batch was a barleywine, it is fantastic. I've also got a nice, simple american stout on tap that is one of my favorites.
