Default Nut Brown Ale ( very tasty )

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: notty
Yeast Starter: no
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.50
Original Gravity: 1.058
Final Gravity: 1.011
IBU: 35.1
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 27.7
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3 weeks
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): N/A
Tasting Notes: All I can say is it is quite tasty .

I do not know where I got this recipe from but thought I would share it since it is very good . Tastes like Lil' sparky's ( great beer ) with more chocolate and fuggles . If I found it on this forum somewhere then thanks to the poster for this recipe

Mash in 15.63 Quarts water at 164.2 degrees - Mash Temp 150 degrees 75 minutes

Fly Sparge 4.88 gallons at 168 degrees

Estimated pre boil Gravity 1.051

7.04 Gallon Boil size
I would boil for 90 minutes myself as I think that makes for tastier beer .

Leave in primary for 3 weeks then bottle

9 Lbs pale 2 row
1 Lbs Caramel Crystal 60 L
1 Lbs Chocolate malt
1 Lbs flaked oats
.50 Lbs Victory malt
1 Oz Fuggles @ 60 min
1 Oz East Kent goldings @ 60 min
1 Oz Fuggles @ 15 min
Notty yeast

going to make this next time I think as I am low on beer I like and high in beer I do not like .
this stuff kicks arse. But I guess I will be drinking stuff I do not like for a while since this takes a month or more in bottle to taste real good and my blondes will not be ready for a couple months

How was the Fuggles at 15 mins? I've got the same in a recipe I'm working on at the moment (using EK Goldings), just not sure if it would end up being too hoppy being that late in the boil.

Not too hoppy . The chocolate and caramel bring in enough to balance it out This is without a doubt my favorite nut brown . I love nut browns . the next one for me would be Lil Sparky's which is a lot lighter . all others I have drank fall behind them both .
East Kent should go well in it also I would think . Check out this recipe using fuggles and EK but with less chocolate http://www.dubbeldachs.com/recipes_nutbrown.htm and it won an award
If no one has made this recipe then they are missing out on a great beer . I wish I could remember where I got this recipe at .

I like this recipe. Wonder if a whole pound of victory would keep the taste balance with the oats. I think I would like that extra nutty taste to it.

should add in that extra nutty flavor and maybe a bit of biscuit which would not be bad either . This does have a fairly strong chocolate / coffee bitter to it from the chocolate malt so I am not sure what would happen there . maybe it would need to be adjusted ? Someone with experience in this would be able to answer that i am sure .
I will post that question on wichitahomebrewers.org also to see what I get back .

Awesome, I have a Nutella brown in the fermenter right now that's almost exactly like this. I went for the full pound of victory, 3/4 lbs chocolate and Maris otter. It's got cocoa in it, but should be in the same ballpark as this, cool. Really looking forward to trying it now, thanks for posting.

that sounds like a real good beer . I like a good chocolate nutty beer . English browns just do not get it . too much bitter and not enough other .
I think I am going to make another batch this weekend . Not sure though since I have way too much beer sitting around that i need to drink up . I make a lot and do not drink but 2 bottles a day so 10 cases goes for a while . But I have a nice variety as long as I make beers I like but tend to make a few I just do not care for so they last longer but you never know how they taste if you do not make them .

I'm brewing this as we speak, I'm going to ad some cardamom to it try create a nice spice flavor for Christmas. Maybe take some to my work's Christmas party if it's ready in time.

1 lb of chocolate seems to be a hell of a lot in a brown ale. What was the predicted SRM/EBC of this one? Was that a typo because I reckon that would bring it out closer to a stout or porter. In comparison, in my brown ale I had about an oz and a half (45 grams) of choc malt.
