Dirty Water Brown (American Brown Ale)

Don't need a question to start a thread here. The weather is hot, it would be nice to know when the next brew is coming.

Adapted from Jamil's recipe to my preferred method in the kitchen. Hope I can pop this in this weekend.

Hey Spud, I'm sure you have a long list, after such a long break... get brewing!
The other brown ale recipe to try, is from the brewing classic styles book - "Janet's Brown Ale" by Mike McDole. Even Jamil says it's better than his own brown ale... So many recipes, so little time...

ok went right down last night. realised that i don't have enough DME and was forced to pop in 900g of Dextrose. damn...

poured the wort right into the leftover yeast and it was fermenting within an hour. However there's no thick krausen but very active movement at the top.

Amarillo hops and chocolate malt is yummy! :mrgreen:

bam... it went down to almost 1009 due to the high dextrose. A bit too light on mouthfeel but the taste is nice.

Subtle bitterness with some malty burnt chocolate malt and citrusy grapefruit amarillo. I'd do this again with the right amount of malt next time.
