Anybody got an opinion on the grain bill of my coming brown ale?
Maris otter as base
7% crystal 240(ebc)
5% brown malt
2% pale chocolate
Aiming on 1.048 OG and 20 ibu, a small part of the hop addition ~0.8g/L will be First Gold at 15 min
Aiming for a lighter, kinda dry northern style brown.
I'm sorting out a recipe as well, it'll be either my next brew or the one after. I'm planning on adding a little Victory, 5%-ish or so, and some crystal as well. I'm thinking about 60L but may drop it down. I recently had a 4-pack of Samuel Smiths and though I'm not necessarily trying to duplicate it I was trying to pay attention to what may have been in it.
British II (Wyeast 1335) or maybe Yorkshire (1469). Aiming for around 5% and 35IBU.
