Just wanted to give a shout to this recipe. Brewed it in April for my father, who requested a brown ale for a fishing trip to Maine with a buddy of his. They both enjoyed it, and so I submitted a bottle to Brooklyn Wort for qualification to the final round and got a spot! Second time entering a beer and first time getting noticed. Very glad I chose this recipe, as the hopping goes really well with the grain bill. Has a well-balanced, toasty, hoppy profile. Highly recommended.
Now I have to brew 5 gallons of something even better and bring the keg to the final round on sept 8th. Suggestions on what I should brew? Looking for some solid ideas.
