Default Best Nut Brown Ale Extract Recipe

Hey all,

Just wondering what you feel is the best extract version of a Nut Brown Ale. Just had my first tonight, and I want to brew up a batch.

If there aren't any "WOW that's good!" extract recipes, I may venture into AG...but I'll only have 3 extract batch's under my belt.

This is one of my families favorite beers. I threw this one together a few years ago, and it's the only beer I still brew with extract because it's a fan favorite. I don't want to switch it to all-grain when it's good how it is.

.5 lbs. American Caramel 40°L
.5 lbs. Crystal Malt 20°L
1 lbs. German Light Munich
.5 lbs. American Chocolate Malt
2.25 lbs. Dry Extra Light Extract
6.6 lbs. Liquid Light Extract
.6875 lbs. Maple Syrup
1 oz. Saaz (Pellets, 5.8 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.75 oz. Mt. Hood (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.75 oz. Argentina Cascade (Pellets, 3.5 %AA) boiled 60 min.
1 teaspoons Irish Moss
Yeast : WYeast 1728 Scottish Ale

I'll have to go look through my notes to get the details on the recipe. If you're interested, let me know and I'll post them. I know the grains were steeped at 154F, but I'm not sure of the water amounts I used. I used a 4 gallon boil and topped up to 5 gallons at the end. O.G. was 1.081 so it's a great winter beer.

I'm quite proud of my Brown Biscuit ale that's in my dropdown under the punk cat there on the left. Always get lots of good reviews on it.

My very 1st extract kit I did was the HexNut Brown Ale from Midwest. Its supposed to be a GooseIsland NutBrown Clone.
It turned out really really good, and I would brew it again for sure!

I don't think mine was the HexNut, but I also got a NutBrown kit from Midwest a while back, and it was great.

Okay, here's the details on the above recipe. Steep grains in 4.8qts of water@154F for 45minutes. Rinse with 3.6qts of 170F water. Add enough water to make 4 gallons. Boil for 60 minutes adding hops and DME at the beginning of boil. Add LME at the last 15 minutes of boil. Add Maple Syrup in the last minute of boil. Cool wort and add water to make 5 gallons. Aerate and Ferment at 72 degrees.

If you have any questions, let me know.

windriverbrewing.com has a fantastic brown ale kit, Black Bear Brown ale. I've started doing non-kit brews, but am going to stick with this one cause it's so good. He's a member and gives discounts to HBT members in the vendor forum.

@ Suthrncomfrt1884:

Wow, that looks really good! I was just starting to think about brewing a brown ale, and I think this'll be the one. Thanks for sharing.

Not a problem. I do suggest giving it time though. The last time I brewed this recipe was in December of last year. I still have a 12 pack left from the last batch. After reading this thread, I got in the mood for a brown ale, so I stuck a couple in the fridge. I tried one tonight and it was excellent. By far, one of my favorite recipes. It has a little bit of alcohol warmth from the 8+% ABV, but it's sweet, nutty, and goes down great.
