are you adding caramel to a brown ale?
or you just want a sweeter brown ale?
I want to play with flavors. I need to optimize the grain bill, calibrate the mash temp and boil time to get a sweet caramel brown beer.

I'm actually done with the first batch and will adjust on the next one.

I just did:
7# Vienna
2# 75lvb
1# 35 lvb
1# 10 lvb
1# red wheat
6
70 minutes @156F
120 minutes gentle boil
Wyeast 1099 whitbread


Taste like caramel and toffee.

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.
