I also used 1oz and its too much by far. I think to style I should have used .25 oz. Don't think there is anything I can do about it now. The color and texture is spot on. Just waaaay too much hazelnut. Hope it mellows out'

Oh and hey Ethanol, I'd use less than your 1 oz of hazelnut. I used approximately 0.85 oz, and I wish I would have cut that in half.

Feels like I'm drinking an alcoholic hazelnut coffee flavoring.

"Even better. You can have *the* recipe. Rogue's Hazelnut Brown started out as a homebrew recipe, and they've released the original recipe in the past. The original hazelnut extract they used is no longer available, so I used an organic roasted hazelnut extract.

8.5lb 2 row
1.5lb munich
1.2lb caramel 80
.55lb brown malt
.35lb caramel 10
.35lb caramel 120
.25lb pale chocolate

Mash at 154

25IBU Pearle @ 60m
10IBU Saaz @ 30m

Ferment at 68 with WLP001, Wy#1056, or SA-05.

Add 20ml (or to taste) hazelnut extract at bottling."
Just kegged a batch of this. Sort of. Below is the recipe i came up with based on the quoted post, the information on the bottle, and the information on the rogue website.

Hydro samples tasted pretty good, but did not have the hazelnut flavoring added.

I used pacman yeast, but don't have pacman yeast plugged into brewtarget yet, so it says s-05.

Also note that the mash instructions are confusing because brewtarget's mash calculator is confusing. I mashed at about 153, then batch sparged at about 160. The numbers down there are inaccurate.

Hop numbers are based on the AA rating on the actual hop packages i had. Your hops may vary. Shoot for the same IBU, not the same quantity of hops. but you knew that.

For the hazelnut flavor i added 1 tablespoon aka about 18ml aka 0.5 fluid ounces of Flavorganics all-natural hazelnut extract, which is alcohol rather than glycol based like most of them. I poured in the extract while racking into the keg. This filled the room with an intoxicating but light hazelnut aroma. It also formed a bit of a slick on top of the beer, but I'm hoping that it does eventually go fully into solution. I'll report back how well this has worked when i finally serve the stuff.

I completely forgot to add the hazelnut extract into the fermenter and just remembered when I was kegging. Should I just add it to the keg and shake well or forget about the extract and count my losses?

This is my second time brewing this beer but the first time it was a kit I bought for P.mash.
This is based off a AG clone recipe from TimpanogosSlim post above.

I substituted Brown malt for Victory and crystal 10l for crystal 20l and Saaz for sterling and a little bit more hops.
and used US-05 instead of the pacman yeast.

The first brew was good but a little strong on the hazelnut. It called for 1oz of flavoring at bottling time but I think .50oz would have been fine.
.50oz this time around.
