American Brown Ale


I was wondering if some of you experienced all grainers could check out this recipe for me and see what you think - I've only made 5-6 batches of all grain so far, all "proven" recipes. This is the first one I've formulated on my own, through a highly scientific technique (I got all of my leftover stuff from the closet/freezer).
