Good Lord, but I can't wait!
I brewed a Nut Brown ale six days ago also. I am curious what type of yeast did you use? My SG has not yet gone below 1.030.

I just did the mash of this recipe this weekend and the yeast are working away as I write this; however, because of the crazy cold up here, I've wrapped the bucket in multiple layers of wool blankets to keep them toasty enough to maintain brewing temperature. Crazy! On the flip side, when their done, they'll CRASH hard in the cooler environment. Can't wait for this to be done - in fact, this is my first brew of the year! NICE. BTW - lookin' like a great recipe.

Gotta say, been in the bottle only about 2 weeks, but this isn't impressing me at all. My batch is IDENTICAL to the OP. I'll give this a few more weeks and try again. Hopeful that it gets better.

Also, nothing wrong with the beer, ingredients used fermentation temps, etc. so don't even comment on that.

I brewed this a couple weeks ago. May I ask why you don't like it? What are you tasting? I'm just curious. Thanks.

You sure it wasn't your fermentation temps?..haha Seriously though, I'd be interested to hear what you think, after its been in the bottle a little longer.

I haven't tried it yet, but sounds like its been well received.

Can you be specific at all as to why you aren't impressed?

1st, the obvious: I'm assuming you like Nut Brown's or you never would have brewed it to begin with, or is this your first and you just don't like it?

2nd, not everyone has the same tastes, period, end of discussion. Just because everyone else liked it doesn't mean you will. I personally can't stand Bell's Oberon, but I am pretty sure that makes me a minority on this site(I do like most of Bell's other brews though), but other people seem to love it, which doesn't matter.

So you didn't like this brew, don't brew it again. Others love it, myself included, my suggestion would be to give it some age, if you still don't like it, make some friends happy and give it away as someone else might enjoy it quite a bit(especially since you are impervious from brewing mistakes).

Going to give this one a go today. Rarely do I read through 33 pages of posts' where 99.% are positive results. This one will be known as "Hanging Brains Nut Brown Ale". And to you Mr. Sparky It's guys like you that got me into homebrewing some years ago. I don't post a bunch on here, but I do read allot. (my old man always told me coming up that we have 2 ears and 1 mouth.......so listen twice as much as you talk and you will learn something). I will surely be posting my results of the Hanging Brains.
