Try and use Special Roast Malt instead of English Brown Malt. Forgot to scale up to 6 gallons so a little weaker than planned. Originally this had aromatic, but I decided to rye it up for fall 1liter starter with 1/2 cup Pilsen dme The recipe is intended to yield 6 gallons at the end of the boil. 5.5 gallons are assumed to be racked to the fermenter (accounting for 1/2 gallon loss). Final volume should be 5 gallons for bottling (accounting for 1/2 gallon loss). Ferment at 68°F (20°C) for 7-10 days. Secondary for 10-14 days. When finished, carbonate beer to approximately 1.5 to 2 volumes
