I decided to just keep this in the primary as well. I'll be bottling it up this weekend. Ynksfan27, sounds like you're having a good fermentation. This brew seems to trend toward using a blowoff but don't worry that the krausen decided to remain calm in yours. Always better to be prepared!

I see that Northern Brewers calls this a strongish American Amber Ale. I'm looking at the BJCP guide and I wonder if the beer isn't more of a American Brown Ale? I'd like to enter this in a local competition, but unsure which catagory would be correct. What do you all think?

I'm going to be brewing this one soon. Will let it bottle condition til mid November. Should be phenomenal with a few months age on it, you think?

How did it turn out with some conditioning? I've got a batch of this in secondary right now.

I did the extract kit from NB. After 2.5 weeks I went from 1.067 to 1.013. I just transferred to a secondary on Tuesday. I will keg it Wednesday when I get home.

I did something a little different on this one. I put the orange peel in with the secondary. We will see how this turns out in a few weeks.

I thought about brewing this one last year, but ended up not doing it. This year I decided to go for it. It's been in the fermenter for a few weeks now. I'm going to bottle half, and keg the rest. Can't wait to try it!

Just brewed this kit yesterday. OG was 1.059, but I did not calibrate my hydrometer. Pitched yeast last night around 5:30PM. Fermentation going strong as of 11AM this morning.

I brewed this, had some modifications tomthe malts since my shop didnt have marris otter, added morenorange peel and a full 2 oz of hopsminstead of the 1 3/4 oz. Needless to say its not the original beer by far, I hit 1.090 and dropped to1.020 when I racked to my secondary after a week or so, its oretty much an american strong ale now but the taste test when racking was really promising ill post again after my bottles are don conditioning
