I was thinking of using an Irish Ale Yeast. Possibly Wyeast 1084. Any suggestions for a sweeter
brown ale? I like them lightly sweet over the dry ones.

Open to some input on this recipe I found for an all cascade brown ale. Does this pass the
"smell test" and look like it would work?10.5 lb base 2-row malt.5 lb 80L crystal malt .5 lb

This is the final recipe I decided on... Do you think a decoction mash will be necessary?

I do prefer the darker/richer O-fests. Thanks for the help! Ordering the supplies tonight.

Would it make sense to use a mix of 5.5 lbs of Munich II and 5 lbs of pilsner? Instead of being
so Munich II heavy.

I have just recently started brewing all-grain, but the first beer seems to be a bit 'thin'.
How much maltodextrin should I add at a time to try and add some body? I've seen many posters
