Tasting Notes: Awaiting 1st place score sheets from Montgomery County Fair, MD

I originally brewed this as an American Brown. At My homebrew club monthly competition it took first. They made the recommendation to change the category to Northern Brown. So, that's what I did. I tweaked the original recipie based on thier recommendations, and guess it paid off. It took first place in the Montgomery County Fair Homebrew Competition, My first ever sanctioned BJCP comp.



- Definite roasted character, but not to the extent of a porter/stout
- Mild carbonation
- Good nose
- Smooth body/mouthfeel

------
BMW didn't have Whitbred goldings hops any longer, so subbed in Kent Goldings with an AA of 7%, adjusted recipe to correlate to original IBU contributions from original batch.

Yielded about 4.3 gallons to fermenter. Inital OG was almost 1.060. Used dilution tool to calculate waster addition to decrease OG. Diluted with 3 liters of filtered water. Corrected OG came in at 1.046. Final yield to fermenter was just over 5 gallons.

Carbonation info to replace above information:
bottled 7/30 1.40 oz sugar in pig
51 grams sugar used to bottle about 2.5 gallons remainder
bottled 1 case + 1 bottle.
