Which book is this recipe from? Extreme Brewing?

Also, how would I go about converting this recipe to a 5 gallon batch?

I inferred that it was 6gal boil volume, 5 gal resulting. Maybe RB will correct me.

Either way, the easiest way to scale a recipe is using BeerSmith or other brewing software. Input the ingredients and size, then hit the scale button and select your new resulting size.

But at 7.2%abv, I think it looks right for a net of 5 gal into primary.

Ohhh, gotcha. Thanks.

I haven't invested in any software yet. I'm trying to buy brewing toys gradually.

From my experience, the $20 I spent on BeerSmith was the best single investment I made in improving my brews. The ability to see how each ingredient affects the numbers, and to have all the important stuff automatically generated, help me focus on WHAT i'm doing, and not which number I messed up or which decimal I transposed.

You can download the software free for 1 month trial. There are at least 4 softwares out there worth looking into, beertools pro, beersmith, promash, etc. Thats a total of 4 months of free trial.

Go right now and download the software.

I love me some Brown India Ale, but I liked Terrapin's version better than DFH. My clone of this was my first (from the hip) clone.
It turned out fantastic despite the use of odd hop combinations.
I have made two batches so far and they are fantastic, about to try it as a partial mash.
5 gal. batch
6.6 lbs. Amber Liquid extract
1 lb. Honey
1 lb. Crystal 60
1/3 lb. Roasted barley
1/8 lb. Chocolate Malt
1 oz. Amarillo 30 min.
1 0z. Goldings 30 min.
1 oz. Chinook 30 min.
1 oz. Amarillo Dry Hop
White Labs 001
IBU- 62.5 ABV- 5.48

Holmesbrewer - you closed the thread with that recipe - seems interesting! - Might have to try it - I'm looking around for an Indian Brown style clone at the moment.

I'm curious how the IBA is getting its color. According BYO's clone recipe, it should be about 32 SRM, but there's no way to get that with those ingredients.

Are they getting this color from the caramelized brown sugar?

Entered into BeerSmith and I got a 35 I am guessing its from the Brown Sugar.
