Posted in thread: Putting together an American brown ale/mild split batch on 10-17-2016 at 05:01 AM
Here's what I'm thinking now.Going for an easy drinking mild and a brown ale with a good bit of
earthy rather than hop flavor, neither with much in the way of IBUs.Malt (for ten gallons,
split into tw...

Would use a dry hop rather than a hop tea as well, if its hard to bottle the beer with hops
floating around everywhere I'd just put them in a steeping bag, hurts the hops a bit but better

Which brand of Munich? What different brands consider "light" munich vary pretty considerably

I think you must have had the DFH Indian Brown, they say they brew it like an IPA but IMO it
tastes like an American Brown Ale, and which, incidentally has 50 IBUs. I might up the two row

I made my last post before reading yours. Some brett may be in order, but I'm a bit nervous

Well complaining about a saison strain attenuating too much is kind of missing the point.That
said the French Saison isn't the best saison yeast but I made my best saison (out of 7) using a
blend of M...

For extended aging I'd go with something along the lines of a biere de garde (strong French
