I've found a few recipes online for Dogfish Head's Indian Brown Ale, but some were extract, some were extract converted to AG, but they all differ. I was wondering if anyone had a true, solid AG recipe for this beer they could share (possibly the one from BYO 250 clone recipes edition, which I might buy...but was hoping to score the recipe beforehand to see if I want to buy it to try the rest) or one that you've tried and know to be very similar to DFH's beer.

Looking to brew this as my first beer in 2 weeks.

Thanks in advance!

--Julian

julian81 - I dig this beer too. Austin Home Brew has a kit available, all grain, partial-grain, and extract.

The ingredients are not listed though. I emailed asking for the grain bill but my message was ignored ...

Yeah I wish sometimes they'd just make those public. I mean I'll buy the grain from them, but I want to scale the recipe for my batch size and brewhouse efficiency.

The recipe is in Sam's book Extreme Brewing, it's extract though.

Yeah it's in the Extreme Brewing book as an extract recipe. That's all I got.

When I punch in the AG recipe from BYO 250 I get a very light SRM 18 color vice the stated 32. I must have one of the grains messed up or the recipe is not correct in the magazine. The extract recipe in BYO 250 is different from Sam's book too. The BYO recipes call for Pilsner Malt and have a different hop schedule and yeast. Supposedly the BYO recipes had help from Bryan Selders at DFH.

I want to do a brown shortly but am torn between four recipes.
Tasty's Janet's Brown
Sparky's Nut Brown from here
DFH Indian Brown clone
Cigar City Maduro Brown need a recipe though.

I read something about this actually, and I think BYO made a recipe correction in the May issue of 2005 to the recipe you're using. Actually I just did a quick google and found the following thread posted by the editor of BYO magazine himself.

http://www.realbeer.com/discussions/...ead.php?t=7993

What happens if you make those changes in beersmith? Would you mind posting the recipe from BYO too?

Thanks!
Julian
