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

American Brown Ale


Not real strong, but very smooth. I am drinking one of these right now. Only 10 days in the bottle!

If you have not used steeping grains before, you are in for a treat. Does a lot to add body, and is very, very easy. Just remember to take the bag out as the boil begins.

Nice hop flavor. Great head retention. Only did a primary, no secondary. In the primary only about one week.


  • 7 lbs. Alexander's Dark LME
  • 1/2 lb. #60 Crystal malt grains
  • 1/4 lb. Chocolate malt grains
  • 1/4 lb. Black patent malt grains
  • 2 oz. Fuggles (4.5%) boiling
  • 1/2 oz. Willamette (5.3%) finishing
  • 2 tsp. Gypsum
  • 2 tsp. Ground cinnamon
  • 1 pkg. Brewer's choice (Wyeast) #1095 British ale yeast

Cinnamon and finishing hops went in during last 10 minutes of boil.

Sorry didn't do SG or FG. But, experience tells me it is about 4.5%. Another pound or two of the LME would probably raise the alcohol level to about 5.5% or so.
