Default Thinking of a sweet nutty brown

Toying with a caramel nutty brown.
I figured the late hop cascade would balance it in an interesting way.

8 lb 2 row
1.5 lb victory
1 lb crystal 60
1 lb Munich 2


2 oz cascade 20 mins
1 oz cacade 5 mins

Any thoughts

Yep. You need a bittering addition. That is what will actually balance out your sweetness (that is, if you're planning on getting your sweetness through mashing higher temp).

Aggred. Maybe move 1 oz to 60 and add a little color. 1/4th of chocolate should do. That should be a nice dark hoppy brown.

Here you go.

8 lb 2 row
1.5 lb victory
1 lb crystal 60
1 lb Munich 2
.25lb Chocolate

1 oz cascade 60 mins
1 oz cascade 20 mins
1 oz cacade 5 mins

Now if you want a caramel nutty brown then I would back off the late hops. Maybe just 1 oz at 60mins and add .25lbs dark crystal instead of the chocolate.

looks like a nutty amber, needs some chocolate malt to be a brown. id back off on the late hops and up the crystal if you want more of a caramel presence

Not so sure about that. Way too much crystal.

I've brewed this one before and it turns out as a very nice (sweet) brown ale.
