Happened to have a Wyeast 1098 gathering dust in the fridge and decided to brew a batch of BBD. The LHBS suggested Marris Otter, which I have never used, for the pale malt. Mashed at about 154-155 for 60 minutes. After letting the wort cool all night in my fermentation chiller, pitched the yeast this morning. The OG was a little high for this style at 1.060. Can't wait to see what it tastes like.

Just tried the first pint of this beer and it was great. I used the AG recipe given above by Pete08. Used Wyeast 1098 and had a very quick primary. Went from 1.06 (a little high for style) to 1.02 in one week. Bottled after two weeks in primary. Nice sweet malty taste with the Special B and biscuit malt adding a hint of raisin and nut flavor. Going to let it age for a few more weeks to see if it has changed. I'm adding this one to my rotation.

Just checked on my batch - 2 hours into the primary and the airlock is a bubblin'!!!

I had a few minor tweaks - .8oz centennial for the full boil as my fuggle was only 4%. So I added that at 1oz@15minutes left and 1oz@5min left. I had the centennial about and I am a hop-head - so we'll see how the tweaks turn out. The sampling held promise!

How long have you all gone in your primary/secondary?

Cheers

I usually go about 3 weeks in primary and a week in secondary.

I need a good brown ale for the fall evenings. Pete08's AG conversion of this recipe looks like the one! Got the 1098 Whitbread yeast on the stirplate as I type!

Honestly, I don't think I have brewed a brown ale in 2 years!

I finally went ahead and did this one this morning. Everyhing went well for the most part. The wind was blowing so damn hard it kept blowing my propane burner out, so I had to sit out in the snow and baby sit it. I was out of hop bags so there is a whole lot of trub in there right now. Hit the OG right on at 1.058....must have been luck. I can't wait to try this . The wort tastes great.

Just took a sample and in two and half days it has gone from 1.058 to 1.022.
I couldn't help but try it and it is delicious. I can't wait. I usually quit drinking fron Jan-March but that won't happen now!

Been drinking a keg of this for a few weeks now and it's a delicious Brown Ale. Not a real dark color and a hint of coppery red. Very malty to the nose and a smooth drink, hops nicely set in the background as they should be. Any alleged pluminess from the big chunk of Special B is certainly not super dominant. I used 1056 to keep the flavor cleaner.

This will be my "go to" Brown Ale recipe from now on.
