I put up an earlier version of this recipe before and didn't really know what style it should be. I made a few changes, and thought i'd try it as an experiment. I really enjoyed a beer at a local brewpub which was a german brown ale "with a little bit of candy sugar for sweetness".
For Hops, i'm going with 2.5 oz at 60 and .5 oz at 15 minutes. The Tettnang hops i have are only 3% aa. I calculate that at 31 IBU. I'm mashing the grains right now, the temp 32 minutes in was 154. My Bucket MLT is dripping which i hope wont mess up my efficiency. I would buy the cooler MLT/HLT from morebeer, but they're out of stock!
I'm going to mash out at 168 and see what i come up with in 6 weeks! :-) I'll keep you all posted. Thanks for the feedback. For my second revision, i'm going for a more "brown ale" approach. This is my first All-Grain brewing experience and i'm psyched.
