I have not brewed in a while and I'm thinking of making this in a few weeks. It looks really good.

I see the percentages, but can you say what quantities you used for the grains? Pounds, ounces, etc?

Thanks!

Bryan... thanks for the comment. This one came out better than I had thought it would... a bit hoppier than I planned (you can reduce the amount of first boil hops), but it's all good. See below for the weights on this 3.5 gallon batch. If you use BeerSmith, I can send an export to you. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks! I don't have beersmith but this is perfect. I may cut the hops just a bit, but then again maybe not. I kind of like the idea of a brown ale that's got some good hop character.

I will be dialing back the hops a bit the next time I brew it. Good luck and enjoy your brew day!
