Gonna make this one tomorrow, I am really looking forward to a good brown ale.

It's only going to be my 2nd batch so I'm a bit new to all of this. I was wondering what your kegging techniques are. I have a 5 gal corny keg and might be making a pressure valve before I keg to get more accurate volumes.

Thanks for the recipe.

I naturally carbonate this beer, so I'm afraid I can be of little assistance. Should you choose to follow that technique, there are any number of online calculators which will tell you how much sugar to add.

I'm new enough that I haven't considered making a recipe with so little malt before. Is that really enough? What is you abv? I'm considering getting the ingerdients today.

This is a very subtle beer, comparatively speaking. If you're used to big, butch flavors, you might not be pleased. But for those who dig subtlety, Mild is a really nice style.

Yes, it's really enough. ABV depends on your FG - if you use the numbers above, you're looking at approximately 3.25% That means you can have a coupla-tree Imperial pints before impairment.

Let me know how it works out for you!

Bob

Brewed 5 gallons of this last night, initial taste out of the hydrometer was promising. My O.G. was 1.040 using your recipe. Mashed at ~162-164 for an hour in the oven and did a second "sparge" with the 1 gallon at 170*F for a solid 10-12 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

I just racked this to secondary earlier this week. So far so good and the hydrometer sample at 1.010 left me thirsty for more! Can't wait to bottle and sample!

What are your thoughts on using 4oz Rauch malt instead of the special roast? I don't have the special roast on hand and want to brew tomorrow. Have all other ingredients but that.

Thoughts?

would lend to a totally different flavor. the special roast lends to such a subtle nice flavor in this beer.

the rauch would make it much more smokey. worth a try, but will dramatically change the beer.
