Normally that would be a tough call, but fortunately my beer stocks are healthy just now and I can easily leave the nut brown quietly improving in the corner of there garage... three weeks from now I will crack open the first bottle. I am looking forward to it because it is my first brew using home made biscuit malt.

If I wanted to bump this up to about 6% abv what would you guys recommend? Just bump the base malt or a little bit of all.

This is going to come out with more than that for ABV I am sure . Most of my beers get me buzz off of two of them and two liquor store beers sure would not do that . According to beer smith this will have 6.7% but I am betting on higher if you do a good mash and sparge .
Beer Smith says if you use 10 pounds 2 row and 2 pound victory you get 7.9 % and if just 10 pds 2 row 7.3%
By the way a hydrometer is inaccurate and I believe the ABV is always much higher than it says .

I'm close to racking my second attempt at this. My first attempt became infected but this one tastes great.

Quick question: should I clarify this with finings added to the fermenter, or should I leave or alone?

Got no idea about southern , northern etc but this is the best nut brown around . I do not know who BCS is but if it is a kit then no way to compare it to this .
I make lots of nut brown customized from Muntons no boil kit and it is good but not this good . I also tried NB nut brown and it is not up to par in my opinion.

Based only on the recipe... Having not tasted my version yet, it is a Northern English Brown. Southerns are lower in gravity, sweeter, may be a bit darker and more restrained on the hopping than this recipe indicates. It may even be high on the gravity for a traditional northern English Brown, depending on your efficiency.

This is not sweet nor bitter . It is very smooth . Not strong tasting at all . Nothing like a Northern Brewers nut brown or a New Castle for sure .
