I just made a ass kicking American pale ale and have some leftover ingrediants I'd like to throw into an American brown ale. This is what I have thus far: (items in bold are in inventory and I'd LOVE to use them)

Grain Bill:
8# 2 row pale malt (us)
1/2# 40L crystal malt
1/2# chocolate rye malt

1 oz mt. hood @ 40 min
1 oz mt. hood @ 20 min
1 oz cascade (steeped for 15 minutes)
wyeast 1056


I'm just looking for something a little maltier than a american pale ale with a little more color and more subtle hop profile. Thanks in advance, I often get killer advice on here.

looks pretty darn good. I personally like to toss in a cup of brown sugar with 10 minutes left on the boil. It adds a nice sweetness to a brown.

Can I do a 10 minute boil of the brown sugar and use it as my starter?
