If I ever do it again, I will also do that... Was just thinking to sub out the DME for the right amount of 2 row.

I just brewed this. Tasted a bit of it right before bottling. Does it have sort of a sour/biting finish? Will that mellow during bottle conditioning? Hopefully this batch isn't a lost cause.

I know it's an old thread, but I'm thinking about doing this brew in the next couple days...I've got some golden light extract here...would that be the same as the extra light?

Updated it to All-Grain.... with a twist. That twist being one gallon of apple cider!

Recipe is for 4 gallons of beer. Then add the cider at the end of primary.

8 lbs American 2-row
.5 lbs Breiss Carabrown 55°L
.25 lbs American Chocolate Malt
1 oz Hallertau (Pellets, 4.50 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.5 oz East Kent Goldings (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 5 min.
.5 tbsp Cinnamon (ground, boiled 5 min.)
.5 tbsp Nutmeg (ground, boiled 5 min.)
1 Vanilla Bean (split, scraped, added to 2ndary)
1 gal Pasteurized apple cider (added to end of primary)
1 pkg Danstar Nottingham

Notes

Single infusion mash (1.25 qts./lb.) at 158 degrees for 60 minutes. Big and malty because cider may dry it out.

I used Breiss Carabrown (55L) but in Beertools used British Crystal (55L) for the calculations... Couldn't find Carabrown on Beertools.

Brewing 4 gallons, then adding 1 gallon of cider towards the end of primary and letting that ferment as well.

How is it? Jury's still out. The cider is pronounced. Had to make a spice extract and add more. Still not positive if I'd make it again. The extract version might have been better!
