.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!
How would changing the above recipe affect the beer if I swapped the 8lbs of pale malt for 8lbs of 2 row?

I have a sack of 2 row and the hops already so this would be a cheap brew for me to do.

Thanks

My guess would be to add a bit more biscuit and a bit more munich or not. Im shure as is would still work good.Pale malt is just slightly more toasted or kilned or whatever so upping the bisquit may give you the like but still will be slightly different anyway you do it,still should be good. I wouldnt fret it.

Ahh, I usually go mid-range for most everything I do, but that's up to your personal taste.

So I bottled this on Wednesday and I will say it was the best tasting Brown I have ever done going into the bottles. It had a little warmth to it which I find interesting with a lower ABV beer, anyone else getting a hint of warmth with theirs? It's not off putting or extremely noticeable, almost just the right amount...like a winter warmer. Looking forward to opening this up in a few weeks.

Pretty tasty after only two weeks in the bottle. Centennial Blonde Ale is on deck for this weekend.

Great thread, I've been looking t do a good brown ale. Ive done 2 from kits that tasted a bit thin. Might have been my techniques though. I brewed them early on in my home brewing ventures. Looking for something like the fans of it here are describing its flavor. I may give this a shot this week, Thanks for the recipe ChshreCat.

Getting ready to go with this again. It is the only extract that I ever do now. I'm going to go with the Wyeast Bier de Garde that I will harvest from my present brew or maybe wyeast 1968

I just brewed my all-grain version of this recipe, for about the fifth time. It's been about a year since the previous go-round, and it's always popular. So the time is right!

Cheers!

And now that it's done, bottled, and carbed, I wonder why it took so long to get back to it.
