Default Partial - BBD Brown Biscuit

Recipe Type: Partial Mash
Yeast: US-04
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.058
Final Gravity: 1.015
IBU: 21.7
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 23.7
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Tasting Notes: A good brown. Little biscuit coming through with nice notes from the special B.

This was my first recipe and I think I can be proud of it. It's a very easy, simple brown ale. The flavor is fantastic. Just a bit from the biscuit malt with some dried fruit flavor coming out from the special B. It's malty and a little sweet, but in a good way. My craft brew drinking friends and my BMC drinking friends both love it. This was my first, but it's going to be a regular recipe in my house. Call it my house brown.

I didn't set out to do a clone brew, but I think this is very close to Deschutes Buzzsaw Brown seasonal. I'd have trouble telling them apart if I didn't know better. If you're looking for a Buzzsaw clone, or just a good brown, give it a shot.

Yes, this is the recipe from http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/time-83712/.

I am going to make this soon, with a few minor differences.

Based on 80% efficiency, here's where I'm at (AG).

8 lbs pale malt
1 lb munich
1 lb special b
.5 lb biscuit
.5 lb flaked barley instead of carapils

1oz Williamette @ 50 min.
1 oz Williamette @15 min.

Wyeast English Ale (An LHBS sent me a $3 discount birthday card)

OG 1.057
IBU 23
SRM 21

I'm thinking of mashing at 155* for body.
Thanks for the inspiration!

It is in the fermenter, waiting for my silly 1098 Wyeast to swell. OG was 1.060. Sample is tasty!

Scratch that, the yeast is now busy!

Excellent. Your recipe looks like it should come out pretty close in flavor to my PM. The hops are pretty close. The bulk amber extract I use is a little higher in unfermentables than some others so the munich is a nice touch. Hope you like it!

Brewed on Sat. Double pitched yeast, don't ask, the story has been posted. Anyhow, I think the vigorous fermentation is over. I sampled for the heck of it (I was in a sampling mood; I racked my blackberry wine over to a new carboy, then racked my oatmeal stout into the just-vacated and cleaned wine carboy, after dumping in .5 lb of coffee grounds and 6 oz of cocoa powder). The Brown Biscuit is very good so far! FG is 1.016, or close. That's what I was hoping for; I didn't want it too dry.

Yeah. This one shouldn't be very dry. It has a nice sweetness to it.

I really enjoy this beer. I have been "sampling" it over the last couple of weeks. It is good and getting better with age! I will make this again. Thanks for the recipe!!

So I slacked off and ended up buying fresh grains and I brewed your BBD Brown Biscuit (partial) ~5 weeks ago. I think I made some steeping mistakes (time or temp) and should have done a yeast starter (I decided to try the sprinkle method - I won't do that again), but regardless the samples I took tasted quite promising regardless. If the real deal tastes as I expect, I will be brewing it again to correct my mistakes.

I just kegged it a few nights ago, and I will be getting my first real taste on Christmas day That'l be a nice present, along with 6 month aged Ed Wort's Apfelwein completing at the same time.

I will let you know how the first pour is
