Beer Style: American Brown Ale  (10C)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

American Brown Ale


The beer turned out much paler than I imagined. To the eye it was just noticably darker than pale malt. It smelled nutty and toasty, though. It was easy to differentiate from pale malt with the sense of smell. I believe it to be 2-row.


  • 6 pounds, mild ale malt
  • 4 ounces, chocolate malt
  • 1--1/2 ounces, Fuggles (pellets) - boil
  • 1/2 ounce, Fuggles (pellets) - finish

Bottled on day 13. At it's best fresh; weeks 3-6.

I believe the original gravity figure (which sugests more than 80% efficiency) was in error. Around 1037 seems more likely.
