    You can never go wrong with Amarillo, one of my most favorite hops ever. You could literally
    mash a turd, and boil it with Amarillo and have a great beer!

    Yeah, if you pitch your yeast at a low temperature (65F) and allow the yeast to start working
    in cool wort and rise the temp on their own it will give the beer a cleaner taste.But as

    Absolutely, most brown ales are not over 40 IBU and typically more malty than hoppy. Cascade
    are more of a fruity hop, and Goldings have a bit of an earthy spicy taste. Depending on style
    of brown, it...
