nope... made it up all by myself.

i'm doing some experimenting. i'm making a series of one gallon batches using mostly the same ingredients, and adjusting the grains and amounts to be appropriate to the style.

Last week was a porter, so it was basically this + some black patent.
Next week an amber ale, so this - chocolate, and adjusting the crystal malt to 80L or maybe 90L.
Then the pale ale, which is this, minus the chocolate.

in each case, adjust the hop treatments, and amounts, to hit approximately the style guidelines, and stay fairly "middle of the road".

i'm trying to get my baseline "American Brown's" worked out, so i can then add/subtract, etc., and know what to expect.

Once I get these done, i will either shift to "british brown" or "yellow" or some other logical, related groups.

I look forward to seeing the results posted on here. Need to get my hands on some 60L at some point soon, and then figure out what to make with it. not a huge coffee fan, but with as little chocolate as is in your recipe, I think it might be worth a shot.

last week's porter on the left... this week's brown ale on the right.

difference is the porter has black patent in grain, brown ale doesn't, nothing else is different... obviously not much change in color.

So I brewed a yeast starter for tomorrow's ESB. I also kegged an ESB, and finished a keg of ESB.
Did I happen to mention that I like ESB's?

I brewed a 10 gallon batch of my all grain of my Irish Red today. It was a nice brisk 45 and sunny. Couldn't ask for a better day!

I'm taking next weekend off. I hope the weather holds until the week after. The only bad part about sub-50 weather is the cleaning afterwards.

Cheers!
I've brewed this beer. I'd leave it alone, it's a great beer.
