I brewed this on saturday. The carafa III seemed to make the wort pretty dark, and I am interested to see how it finally comes out. I had to substitute centennial for the amarillo.

Have you ever tried adding a half pound or so of Muscavado to this recipe?

I haven't. I'm still not sure how it came out brown for me, but it did. Let me know how yours comes out!

Well, I will see how it comes out, and in the future if I decide to brew this again I might consider adding the sugar.

How would adding 0.5 lb of muscavado sugar affect the recipe? Would I need to up the hop additions?

You may want to add a touch more hop just to account for differences in utilization, but I'm not sure it will make much of a difference unless you add a whole lot of sugar.
