Shouldn't be thin with all that residual sugar left in it either. I don't know about kegging
but wouldn't it just need a couple of weeks to condition and for the flavours to meld
together?Btw, brown m...

I wouldn't add much crystal, though. Good ways to increase complexity are different invert
sugars, amber malt, brown malt, different roast malts. Brown and amber malt by themselves
provide layers of f...

I wouldn't bother with 5m additions as all the aroma will fade. 15m might still leave some

following. Do 12l...

20-30% of brown malt in your grist.

These guys are talking about proper partigyles :-)As above, once you have two mashes or boils,
nothing stops you producing two, three or as many different beers as you want. You still have
the whole f...

Seems fine. You can dial from there. Lots of bitters are pale and hoppy, while this one would
be amber and aromatic. Make sure it has some bitterness but don't overdo it.
