Grain Milling Option:

This is currently my favorite beer (next week, who knows?). I've always liked Dogfish Head's Indian Brown and discovered Tasty McDole's Janet's Brown in Brewing Classic Styles as a really nice similar beer to brew. Both of those are a little heavy handed in ABV and it's hard to have more than one, especially in warmer weather. This recipe is several iterations deep and it's now stable using ingredients that are always available. The dank piney hops (CTZ) are on the nose and firmly in the finish, but a combination of caramel, chocolate and toasted malt flavors back it up for perfect balance. Before the 2012 BJCP revision, (you know, back in the day) we would have called this an out of style, too hoppy American Brown.

This recipe has done best with an English yeast such as Wyeast 1318 or the newer Omega British Ale V. If you choose Wyeast, you may want to make a 2 liter starter with a single pack. The Omega cell count allows for a single pack pitch as long as it's less than one month old. If you prefer dry yeast, Safale S-04 is fine.

A basic recipe sheet is included with the kit showing the actual grain bill and hop additions. Since everyone brews all grain a little differently (BIAB, batch sparge, fly sparge etc) it is difficult to provide exact water amounts and temperatures. If you need help prior to brewing, give us a call.

For emphasis: This kit does not include yeast or priming sugar, it must be selected from the accessories list on the right if you need them.

Enjoying my last pint of this keg.  Love the Marris Otter in this kit.  I'm curious to try the malt bill in this kit as a regular brown ale with just a small 60 minute bittering charge.  As is the CTZ provides a dank piney and firm hop bitterness.  Well Done Bobby!
