Sorry I don't have any insight into the pre-2009 version. The 2012 version is probably the best brown ale I have ever had. I would love some recipe info on that if anybody has anything to share.

I agree. But whether they use the silver cloud extract our create their own, this sounds like the closest a homebrewer may be able to get. What is the consensus on the base recipe at this point?

Yeah sorry. Used the pliers to pull the pieces out. I was able to get my jug clean with a bottle brush. Just bend the brush as needed to get the angles. Then sanitize with StarSan.

The yeast will start fermenting that added sugar. You'll need to wait for stable gravity readings again and then start the bottling process over with new priming sugar.
