Default Extract - Swamp Nut Brown Ale

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: US-05
Yeast Starter: None
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.048
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 15.1
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 19.6
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 31 days @ 67degF
Tasting Notes: 45 BJCP score in American Ales 10C

I was shocked to win this one with such a huge score but here she is:

6 lbs Amber Dry Extract (Munton)
0.75 lbs Carafoam
0.25 lbs Chocolate Malt
1 oz Dark Brown Sugar

1.00 oz Williamette (4.7%)
1.00 oz Fuggles (4.3%)

1 packet Safale US-05

30m steep Carafoam and Chocolate Malt @ 155degF. 60m boil DME and brown sugar with Williamette Hops. 5m aroma boil Fuggles. Pitch 1 packet Safale US-05 with no rehydration (just sprinkled on wort). Leave in primary for 31 days. Bottle with 3/4c corn sugar for 2 weeks.

One important note: I tossed the extract in with the wort at 160degF still on the burner. I definitely got a touch of burned extract on the bottom that managed to mix in as the boil got vigorous. Perhaps it added enough 'character' to really push my beer over the edge. I won't be doing that again, but I may add some caramalized Amber DME to the wort the next time I brew this recipe.

Wow. A score of 45 and no one ever commented on this? Good job, by the way. Wish this was an active thread - I would have loved to have seen other people's experiences with this. US-05, no starter, extract....and a 45?

Wow.

Brewed up a batch yesterday. I just couldn't get this off my mind. Everything was right on par with your directions, but no early-addition DME or carmelized DME...already had the water up to about 200 when I added it...so mine will be on par with what the 'original' recipe had in mind. If it turns out as well as yours did, I might try your 'version' of it. I'll let you know!

Opened up my first Swamp Nut Brown Ale - enjoying it now. F'in delicious. Perfect balance of nutty and malty. Nice mouthfeel. It'd be a shame not to keep this in the pipeline. There is no question in my mind where your BJCP of 45 came from. Well deserved.

I just brewed this up this morning. used S-04 vs. S-05 and swapped the hops by accident (fuggle as 60 min, willamette as 5 min)... just tossed it in the bucket so here goes nothing.
