Hi all - my father visited the UK a while back and raved about Murphy's Brown Ale. I can't seem to find it here in the states, so I thought I'd try to brew him up a tribute. Is anyone familiar enough with the stuff to take a swing at a recipe? (extract based, pls). FWIW, he did note a very creamy texture (for a brown ale).

Thanks!

I've not heard of it.....

I think you'd be safe just buying a brown ale kit from your HBS and maybe steep some flaked oats to give it some more body. Should turn out nice.

To me, a brown ale is a brown ale. Not much variation in the recipes.

Agreed and keep the IBUs down a bit. Too bitter then it becomes an American Brown Ale which wouldn't be anything like what your father had in England.
