Which recipe? Here's the one I'm using (rounded for simplification):

10.75 lbs pilsner
1 lb flaked maize
11 oz amber malt
11 oz crystal 60
7 oz coffee malt
6 oz brown sugar
2 oz roasted barley

(omitting hops)

When I enter this into Beersmith for a 5.5 gallon batch, I only get 16 SRM. What the heck am I doing wrong here?

Oh, this is the clone recipe from BYO.

Look at the one roaring brewer posted above. I'd trust that one much more. I can't see DFH putting flaked maize in a brown ale

I have a sneaking suspicion that the "Carmelized sugar" in the Indian Brown Ale is "India Tree Dark Muscovado Sugar."
Beer. It's what's for Dinner.

Mother of Hades I hope not, at $10 per lb.

Sorry to resurrect but I'm researching big brown ales to help with my recipe. I've always loved the malt profile of this brew. Pretty sure it's the Amber malt I'm tasting/liking.

I just tried a version of this recipe.
10lbs 2 row
1 lb of Crystal 60
.75lb of Roasted Barley
.25 ib of Choc Malt
.5 lb of brown sugar

1.5 oz Amarillo 30min
1.5 oz Golding 30 min
1.0 oz Amarillo flame out
I had 7 gallons before boil and 6 gallon post boil. Preboil is 1.042 gravity which is little low but apparently we sparged too much water.

It is very dark as is, I think the roasted Barley is a little too heavy.

Reason: add volumes
