My worts are usually sweet and bitter and the flavors aren't really melded together. Let it ride and see how it turns out, I've been pleased with each verison of the brown ale that I've brewed.

Mine have been both sweet and bitter in the past but this was just sour and bitter, no sweetness at all. Maybe I didn't add enough fermentable sugars in the boil, the OG was only @1.045 most my beers have been @1.65. Thanks for the info, I'll just have to wait it out.

Well you aren't THAT far off from the gravities I've had with this beer. Maybe you are tasting the sorghum? It's probably done by now though- any updates?

This beer turned out really good, it had nice carbonation, good head retention and was much heavier compared to Bards and New grist. I'm not sure if the centennial's really fit this brew, I was going for a Brown IPA and will probably try a mixture of hops instead of just one kind on the next batch. There's still a certain bitterness that is a little off but I'm not sure if its the hops, molasses, sorghum or grains I steeped, to many variables, all in all it holds up against the Brown IPA i get from my local brewery. I just bottled another version last night using the same recipe except I used white and red quiona for the steeped grains, and added the sorghum for the full 60 min boil. OG on it was 1.085 and FG is 1.015. Taste is similar but a little sweeter and maybe less bitter.....had a few while bottling so my pallet is off. Thanks for the recipe!

Just cracked open a bottle of the same beer but brewed with dark roasted Quiona, and dark roasted Millet instead of the Buckwheat, this one is AWESOME! I put the sorghum and molasses in for the full 60 minute boil so the OG was @1.085 and ended @1.016 it is really strong but it fits the style so well. Its a lot darker and the hops are not nearly as up front as the buckwheat version but the head disappears quickly. Overall its a very good beer.

I just started a batch of this. Went with two pounds of buckwheat. I'm really looking forward to trying this. Its a gift for my brother in law. Thanks for the recipe!! I will post an update when it's bottled.

I hit the OG spot on. Used the 2 lbs buckwheat. I can see why all grain with this would be rough. Started to make oatmeal by the end of the steep. Pushed the Kent goldings to a full ounce. Should be good, smelled awesome.
