American Brown Ale - knock your socks off!
I created this beer from Designing Great Beers, and I have to say I would buy this beer at a bar. It is the BEST beer I've made, with great mouthfeel, great chocolatey flavor without being overwhelming, and a great hop presence for the style. SG a little high for the 10C category, but amazing nonetheless!

what grains would you use if you were doing this extract brewing?
I just purchased all of the ingredients and I'm going to try this recipe verbatim. I'll post my comments after we crack the first bottle. It sounds great!
How did the recipe turn out?
