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

American Brown Ale


The toasted barley probably had a Lovibond rating around 80-100, the unfermented wort was delicious. This is similar to many stout recipes but the barley isn't roasted long enough to give it that much darkness.


  • 2.4 pounds, pale ale malt
  • 0.4 pound, crystal malt (80L)
  • 1/4 pound, pan roasted barley
  • 1/2 cup, dark molasses
  • 1/2 ounce, Willamette hops (5.5 alpha)
  • Wyeast #1028
