Tasty's recipe is famous and available all over the internet as well as in Jamil's book Brewing Classic Styles.

If it's Tasty's recipe, it's an awesome recipe and makes a fantastic American brown ale. It's probably my favorite beer.

I brewed this two months ago using the (extract) recipie in [I]Brewing Classic Styles[I]. I sampled one after four weeks and it was good, but it is markedly better after two months in the bottle. I read somewhere that Tasty recommends conditioning for an extended period (I believe 4-6 months) before drinking. I think that is good advice, but it is an excellent beer even now.

I have it fermenting right now. I just added the dry hops to it, It calls for 7 more days in the fermenter and then bottle time. I used the more beer version and Tasty helped them formulate it. I can post the ingredients maybe wednesday night.

I did the allgrain version from bcs last week. Going to dry hop this weekend, smells great in the fermenter.

Well I had time to dig it up after all tonight, Here it is:

9lbs LME
1lbs DME Bavarian wheat

1lb carapils
1lb crystal 40L
4oz crystal 40L
8oz chocolate malt

2oz Northern Brewer 60min
1oz Northern Brewer last 15min
1.5oz cascade last 10 min
1.5oz cascade last 1 min
20z centennial dry hops after 7 days in the fermenter

whirlfloc 1/2 tab at last 5min

There ya have it. Before buying this kit all I heard was great stuff about it. I did not know how Hoppy a beer this was. So far it tastes pretty good. still fermenting though.

It's a hell of a beer, that's for sure. I did the extract version several batches ago and at 8 weeks in the keg, the beer transformed into one of the best I'd made. The roast came out and melded with the hops something fierce. Highly recommended.

I have the morebeer Janet's brown extract kit in primary now. Day 9. I'm planning on a 14 day primary before I add the dry hops for 7 days, then bottle. Sounds like I will need to exercise some serious restraint once I bottle.

I brewed this up a while back and it was GOOD! I also enjoyed a bit more conditioning time than normal, but it's at the top if not a bit stronger than the style calls for, and the extra hops remain evident even that long.

Just to confirm, are the second and third specialty grains really both crystal 40L?
