For re-brew will use the mash in/mash out process to achieve better results, or better use of the grain.

Designed this brew to be a fusion of both northern and southern English brown ales. Very pleased with the results of this batch. Good carbonation in the glass for each bottle opened so far. This one is on my 'rebrew' list already. Looking forward to kegging part of that batch.

I have another version of this that I've brewed using different hop schedule, and altered grist (it's in my recipe list here), that also came out great. Just keep in mind that you want to aim for the IBU and OG (to maintain IBU:GU relationship). Adjust hop additions according to AA%.

So you like the other english brown ale in your recipe database over this one? I am trying this one since it has hints of toffee and caramel and that sounds delicious. My LHBS did not have dark crystal malt 120 only 150, so I scaled that back to 9oz.

The British crystal malt II will.

I like both recipes. I just like to tweak them from one brewing to another in order to see how it will impact the end result. Once I get a recipe nailed I can then brew it as often as I like with the same results.
