The hop bill won't support it, either. Looks to me like you'll have an overly sweet molasses mess of a "beer" on your hands. Even the original recipe looks too sweet with 5 lbs of crystal.

Thats crazy! I feel like 6 lbs of extract and another 5 pounds of grains is a lot of sugar for 5 gallons water and 2 ounces of hops, then top that off with 6 pounds of Brown Sugar!, Dang. Let alone a recipe for a red ale....but...to each his own. If you like it, I have no say in the matter, because i have never tasted it.

Hope it turns out, or you learn your lesson about Brown sugar?...

haha lesson learned while brewing don't take buddies up on dares. I knew better when I was doing it but had a few in me and that I'll show you what I can do attitude. Like I said before the brew is really good I have made it several times and its usually the first to go when people come over.

For what it's worth I totally botched a batch of apfelwein by letting someone influence me to sub molases and brown sugar for a good bit of the dextrose content. I've never ate crap before, but I assume the taste would be similar.

At the end of the day it's what homebrewing is all about trying new things because we can. I did taste about one drop tasted like pure sugar but a lot of yeast work still to be done and I will dry hop so might help. I figure I won't quit on it I have hundreds of empty bottles (I keg now). So it will sit in bottles for a long time no need to dump and quit any time soon.

this is where the magic happens! if no one tried doing something off the wall or stupid we'd still be drinking unrefrigerated, fizzy piss water. And if it turns out tasting like ass, the best punishment is having to sit there and drink the whole barrel. At least it's full of booze!
