nope... made it up all by myself.
i'm doing some experimenting. i'm making a series of one gallon batches using mostly the same ingredients, and adjusting the grains and amounts to be appropriate to the style.
Last week was a porter, so it was basically this + some black patent.
Next week an amber ale, so this - chocolate, and adjusting the crystal malt to 80L or maybe 90L.
Then the pale ale, which is this, minus the chocolate.
in each case, adjust the hop treatments, and amounts, to hit approximately the style guidelines, and stay fairly "middle of the road".
i'm trying to get my baseline "American Brown's" worked out, so i can then add/subtract, etc., and know what to expect.
Once I get these done, i will either shift to "british brown" or "yellow" or some other logical, related groups.
