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

American Brown Ale


(Commented that a previously posted recipe from Home Sweet Homebrew was not even close to duplicating the taste of Pete's Wicked Ale....suggested this as an alternative. ---Ed.)

I just brewed one very similar to this, and it came out remarkably like Pete's, but better, of course! Mostly because I wanted something along the same lines, but don't particularly care for Pete's. I left out the toasted barley, and swapped the Northern Brewer for Chinook (my fav!), and used Wyeast 1728 Scottish instead of the 2112. I used Morgan's dark, and Cooper's light extracts.


  • 3.5 lb unhpped dark extract (Morgans)
  • 1.75 lb unhopped light extract (Coopers)
  • 2 oz toasted barley (yes, toasted, for that bitter burnt taste!)
  • 8 oz chocolate malt (for brown head!)
  • 1 oz Northern Brewer bittering (Boil 1 hour!)
  • 1.5 oz Cascade (last 10 minutes)
  • Wyeast 2112 California
