Anyone have this recipe? I'm specifically looking for the imperial version that was published in Zymurgy a few years back. I'm looking for a big, rich, hoppy brown ale for this weekend's brew session!

I grabbed Mike McDoles recipe from a forum at thebrewingnetwork.com.

My Janet's Brown Ale recipe is below. I've never made this beer as an extract. I welcome someone to convert this to extract for those who for some reason don't have a copy of Brewing Classic Styles. If you can't get Northern Brewer, I would use either Simcoe, Columbus, or Summit.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for the recipe... and make sure you let us know how the DH Indian Brown comes out - that's another "brown" I love...
