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

American Brown Ale


The beer is a brown ale with sweetness from the sugars and crystal malt; not much hop flavor. The maltodextrin contributes a strange slightly syrupy quality (I think)---I might leave it out next time. Anyway, I thought it was a nice, drinkable brown ale.


  • 2 cans, Geordie Extra Strong ale extract
  • 1 cup, dark brown sugar
  • 2 cups, corn sugar
  • 1/2 pound, crystal malt
  • 1/2 cup, maltodextrin
  • 1/2 teaspoon, Irish moss
  • 1 ounce, Willamette leaf hops
