Trying to come up with my own Brutal Bitter clone based on the stats and ingredients listed on Rogues website. On their site it says the color is 14.2 degrees Lovibond, is that the same as SRM? I just opened one and it definitely looks lighter than 14 SRM. Thanks guys!

Lovibond and SRM are nearly identical scales. I was looking at the Brutal Bitter kit that was designed by the headbrewer at Rogue and it says the kit is 8 SRM.

Here is the kit if you are interested in purchasing. It recommends Pacman yeast which can be found here.

Yeah, I brewed this a few years ago and though that it turned out pretty well.

That's funny... I have a bunch of crystal hops and was going to try this recipe out after my conical is done being built in a few weeks... Wasn't shooting for Rogue's, but with all that crystal, I bet it will be nice...

My 2 cents.

Afterwards, i was going to use the same recipe with the wheel barrel full of Mt Hoods I have in my freezer too...I think both will be very nice. I think I will have to go try myself a Brutal Bitter to compare to my what my thoughts are. Haven't had one in a long time...

Reason: thinking ahead

I am thinking of trying the kit. I am a beginning homebrewer, so I don't have strict temp. control options. It is between 60-67 degrees in my house, and a bit colder in my garage this time of year. Should I bother?

If your house is 60-67 and you put your fermenter in a water bath(cooler, bathtub...etc.) and add Ice bottles as needed you'll be fine
