Do you use Irish moss or any other clarifier in your boil? I'm getting ready to brew this on Sunday and I think that's the only change I'm contemplating.

Yes, I always use it. This beer, although dark, can be nice and clear with some red highlights. I looks great.

Thanks. I've checked with the LHBS, everything I need is in stock, so I suppose I'll be drinking this come early Fall.

Hey, thanks for pointing me to your recipe. Do you remember which maltster made your brown malt?

Brewed this up 3 weeks ago and just transferred to the keg today. Can't wait until it is ready. Great recipe.

Thanks! Let me know how you like it. I just bottle two batches for an art event myself and a few others were asked to participate in. One batch was aged in my brett-infected barrel. Unfortunately I think it needs a little more time than I have, but it will do

Is your SRM correct in your recipe? You list 25.3 and I'm getting 32. Mine is based off 500L Black Malt and 75L Brown Malt.

The brown malt that I use is lower than 75L. I'm going off the top of my head, but I believe mine is under 60L. I don't know the name of the maltster.

Brown malt at my LHBS comes from Crisp. Hopville lists the Lovibond as 75, but I found 60-70L on one website and "in the low 50s" on another.

Either way, I've been really interested in making a porter with significant amounts of brown malt. I toyed with the idea of 50/50 pale to brown. Most brewers seemed to think the pale wouldn't have the diastatic power to convert that much brown malt.

I've never tried 50/50 with this beer (I don't think I'll be changing the recipe any further), but I would like to try it with a brown ale. I was thinking 50% brown, 35% pale, 10% crystal (80?), and 5% chocolate.
