An update on my first brown ale that was brewed about 6 weeks ago now.
Reading through the previous threads and making alterations I finally came up with the following recipe.

It's turned out wonderfully after 4 weeks bottle conditioning.
The late boil hopping has given it a clean, fresh aroma. The more the beer warms up the more roasted/biscuit malty flavours permeate through.

I'm very happy with this one!
