This is my 6th brew and I have to post it because it is one of the best brews I have ever had. I got it from "Brewing Classic Styles" on page 143.

Extract
8.4 lbs Light LME
1 lbs Wheat LME

Steeping Grains
CaraPils Dextrin Malt 1.25 lbs
Crystal 40L 1.25 lbs
Chocolate Malt .5 lbs

Hops
Northern Brewer 2.0 oz 60min
Northern Brewer 1.0 oz 15min
Cascade 1.5 oz 10min
Cascade 1.5 oz 0Min
Centennial 2.0oz Dry Hop

Yeast
WLP001California Ale, or Wyeast American Ale1056

Ferment at 67*F and carbonate 2-2.5 volumes.


This brew has a very hoppy aroma and a smooth taste. Since brewing I have become a fan of the hopped up brown ales like Duck-Rabbit Brown Ale, and other Imperial Brown Ales.

10/10 In my opinion.

Glad to hear. I am planning on brewing the all-grain version of that recipe in a few weeks (with some tweaks based on the hops in my freezer).

I used this AG recipe for my version of Janet's Brown:

12 lb Briess Pale 2 Row
1 lb Weyerman Wheat
1.25 lb Crystal 40
1.25 lb Weyerman Carahell
0.5 lb Chocolate

2 oz Perle 6.0% @60 min
1 oz Perle 6.0% @ 15 min
1.5 oz Cascade 6.3% @ 10 min
1.5 oz Cascade 6.3% @ 0 min
2.0 oz Centennial 9.1% Dry Hop

Fermentis Safale US-05 Yeast

Ferment @ 67*F
Carbonate 2.25 volumes

Definitely my favorite home brew to date. It's a bit expensive, but totally worth it! Two of my friends even had me make a batch of this for them. I got a 55 lb sack of Briess 2-row (minus their 12 lbs) out of the deal =)

I have brewed a number of recipes in that book and I swear they are all great! I have not brewed JBA yet but now it's in my pipeline.

Try the West Coast Amber - it has been getting RAVE review of all my hop head friends!!

I think what I'll do is make a small change for a Mini Mash

Extract
3.3 lbs Light LME
2lb Pale DME
1 lbs Wheat LME

"Steeping" Grains
2-Row 1lbs
CaraPils Dextrin Malt 1.25 lbs
Crystal 40L 1.25 lbs
Chocolate Malt .5 lbs

Mash at 154

I might do the OP's recipe on Sunday as I don't have the time to do it all grain. I have all the hops except Northern Brewer. Think I can get away using Nugget instead of NB since they are just bittering anyway?

To the OP, is this for a 5 gallon or 6 batch size?

7 gallon boil resulting in 5 gallons bottled/kegged factoring boiling and racking losses.

I just brewed my second back to back batch of AG Janet's Brown. I never brew the same beer back-to-back, but it's so good.

It's hard to believe, it's as high an ABV and hoppy that it is. So smooth.
McDole's American Amber is awesome as well.

McDole is pretty big on Northern Brewer. I don't think you'll get the same character with Nugget, not to mention there is a 15min. addition as well.
