2 row means that the grain grows on the stalk in 2 rows. There are other "rows" ie 6 row but the 2 row is superior in its make up ie protien carbs and enzymes.

For a brown try using 1/4 to 1/2 pound of your chocolate malt. Should be great!

3 lb muntons amber dme
24oz clover honey
1lb corn sugar
1.5 lb flaked corn
1 lb cara-pils
4 oz chocolate malt

That might make a nice beer, but it isn't a 'brown ale' by style. You might have just invented your own style though!

Replace the corn sugar! Corn sugar is naughty!

I would agree. I would reduce or eliminate the Flaked corn and remove the corn sugar. You could add some LME to compensate. You would be adding a lot of adjuncts between the corn and honey. It might give you a cidery beer.

i guess i could add more dme or lme but i wont make beer unless it has at least 5.5% abv and to do that i need at least 1.060 sg.i haven't had a problem with a cidery flavor from dextrose but sucrose sure does add an off flavor!!!!
oh and the reason i called it an American brown ale is because it met all the requirements for the stile according to promash.oh and thanks for all your help guys I'm going to do some reading on using grain and do some more research i have some time before i have a fermenter available.
