Default First Brew since Mr.Beer kit Brown Ale ext with grains

So this is my first brew and I'm excited to get started on it. I have for gotten what specialty grains they gave me but they are milled together and we will try that with the Brown Ale extract kit.

more to come as we go along the recipe list and can't wait to see how it comes out
Any suggestions on how to make it maybe a little bit more flavorful and nutty?

The best way to make a flavorful beer is with proper procedures. For a more nutty character I would add some Victory malt, which may or may not already be in the specialty grains you have.

I really wish i could remember, there's crystal 120l, coffee malt, roasted barley, and some others
Getting started broke my thermometer and ruined the water before adding any grains. So now got more water and getting back to it.
