I'm brewing this now. My first all grain. Problem is, it looks a little pale in color to be a brown ale. I'm still boiling so maybe that will help.

Never judge a color by the run-off , my beers always darken during fermentation and it seems like even after.

I'm trying to RDWHAHB but being my first all grain I'm being paranoid.

Looks like my OG is a but low also at 1.050 and it's extremely cloudy. Is this from the flaked oats?

Yeah the oats can make it cloudy. Don't sweat it, it should settle out OK in the fermenter.

Just cracked open my first one (still early, only a week in the bottle) but had to try it. This is one nice beer and I am gonna have to really try hard to keep this one aging.

Did a partial mash (first one) since I haven't quite made the step to all-grain (prob next one).

I just did the same thing, cracked 1 bottle after 6 days. Wasn't quite carbed up fully yet, but still tasted pretty good. This was my first AG brew so I couldn't wait Fortunately I just started a diet that will severely limit my beer intake for the next few months, so letting this one age a bit shouldn't be an issue

Maybe a slight oak hint would be ok, but I wouldn't overdo it. If you try it, let us know what you think.

Well as a person who loves Nut Browns, I've oak'd one in the past ( 1 oz french med toast cubes for about a month) and I thought it was quite delicious after about 3 months in the bottle. However, I'm thinking about upping the alcohol by a percent or two and evening out the hops to accommodate for the higher alcohol. With that said, I think it would take to oak very very well.

Brewed this Sunday. Hit an OG of 1.056 using the partial mash recipe. Will report back later. Thanks for the recipe.
