Funny you should ask, I was going to wait to post about it, but here it is...

I can report that the extracts are a TERRIBLE IDEA, at least in that quantity. The almond flavor is overpowering and there is not enough hop flavor for my taste. I also made a rookie mistake confusing dextrose and maltodextrin, so I ended up subtracting body instead of adding it. Maybe some things will get better in the bottle, but I think this will be noted as a learning moment. Disappointed at some of my poor decisions, but you live and learn.

I brewed this today. Almost exactly the same as your original recipe but I swapped the dextrose for 100 grams of light muscavado sugar. Og is 1058

Smells and looks great. This is my first time with northern brewer and I love it, so piney

I used this recipe but did some minor changes. I added 2 lbs of buckwheat honey at 45 minutes and moved the sorghum to burnout. Hoping to kill the tin taste. OG was 1.070, hoping for a bit higher alcohol content. I will let you guys know how it turned out.

Deadset this beer is easily in my top 5 brews. The flavour is great and the molasses really hangs around. My wife (my quality control engineer) loves it.

I suggested dropping back the molasses next time but she wouldn't hear of it.

Can't wait to do a black ipa off this base.

Wow; that's great to hear. I have high hopes for the rasberry ale I've got in my primary right now (no rasberries in it yet...), although I did screw up on brew day. After I chilled the wort and poured it into the fermenter, I ended up having to scrape a bunch of sorghum off the bottom of the kettle. I must not have stirred after adding the sorghum at flame out...

Had exactly the same issue before, didn't stir it enough. It shouldn't be a problem though. Look forward to hearing how you go.
