I usually try to keep fermentation in the 65-70º range.

Our water here is very high in bicarbonates, so I dilute heavily with RO water. The important thing is what is YOUR water profile. If you can use it for other brews, it should work fine with this.

Yeah, I think so. I might have even used US-05 with it myself before.

My....lord....I just grabbed a sample to check the gravity after 8 days......and this blew me away. I actually licked the hydrometer to get every bit of the sample. If this is green beer.....One month from now is going to be awesome.

I've been meaning to brew this up for awhile now, I finally got it together.

I'm mashing it right now, I stuck to your recipe Sparky, except I used .4lbs of maris otter toasted at 350 for 15 minutes instead of the Victory. I'm also using WLP 005 instead of Nottingham.

I'll let you know how it turns out!

The final verdict on my go round with Sparky's NB. Our March internal club competition was a Brown ale comp. We had a master level BJCP judge, someone who's studying to take the test, and a novice judge. My Score was a 28, not good enough to place, but the BJCP judge had it as his 2nd highest rated bier. I think he gave me a 33 or 34.

So that's my experience with this bier. It is a good bier, as if I needed them to tell me that! Absolutely worth brewing again.

Schlante,
Phillip

Brewed this recipe, except I subsutited Williamette hops and Bells cultured yeast. It is FABULOUS! The hydrometer samples all tasted great. I tried the bottled beer green, and it was good, but now after 3 weeks in the bottle, it's the best yet!!! SWMBO loves it!!

Pulled a sample from the keg last night and it's tasting great. I think about another week on gas and it'll be perfect.

SWMBO, not too keen on beer, had a sip and actually remarked on how it tastes pretty good.
