- Product Details
- Styled after southern English brown ales, our Nut Brown kit is a great all-around beer: it's easy to brew (its dark color and rich flavor make it forgiving of mistakes), it's mild enough for light beer drinkers, but characterful enough for more experienced brewers and beer lovers. The finished product exhibits a deep copper color, fruity/caramelly flavor and aroma with toasty, chocolatey notes; and it tastes great after just a few weeks.

- 4.7 / 5.023 Reviewseasy five star runRan this one as my inaugural batch in the grainfather and this is a keeper in the rotation. Split one vanilla bean and extracted in bourbon for a week then added to secondary for one week. End result is excellent with just a hint of vanilla.November 12, 2017Purchased
4 months agoChristmas beer baseGreat base for my Christmas winter warmer. Easy to make. Made a double batch with a buddy for his first all-grain brewNovember 5, 2017Purchased
4 months agoAdded 1oz of EKG at 30mins for just a bit more hop character. Overall though, was a solid easily drinkable brew. Seemed to hit its peak about 2 months after kegging.August 11, 2017Purchased
11 months agoGreat First Time All Grain BeerI received my delivery yesterday and made this beer in the evening. This is a great starter for all grain. This was my first time doing an all grain brew and I was very nervous. The grain bill is simple and the single mash infusion kept things at a level for me to learn. My OG was a little low at 1.042 but for my first time, I'm very pleased. Yeast are feasting now and I cannot wait to try this one. Feel like I discovered fire!April 14, 2017Purchased
10 months agoPerfectly designed beerI followed the instructions and hit my numbers with no problem. The beer was kegged in 10 days (Safale 04) and gentian was added. After 3 days in the keg it is clear, brown and has a wonderful head. The flavor is of rosted nuts and more roasted nuts!August 14, 2016great alemalty with a smooth finish, starting gravity was 1046,finished at 1012.came out fantastic even with my primitive stove top mashing method.all around good ale.March 12, 2016Amazingly smoothI've made this one a few times. Sometimes I add chestnuts to the boil for a little more special flavor, but either way makes a great beer that everyone loves.December 24, 2015Made a nice Honey Pecan Brown AleI added some Pecans to the mash and some local honey after the boil and made a nice Honey Pecan Brown. Been enjoying it for the past few weeks. A nice session beer, very tasty.October 24, 2015Very drinkable !If I had a brew pub this recipe would be my flagship fall seasonal . It is a wonderful very drinkable brew. This has appealed to my homebrewing friends as well as worked as a starter beer for commercial beer friends. I used the Wyeast 1945 NB NeoBritannia yeast fermented it on the very low end of the temperature range. This created a nicely semi-dry and slightly tart profile that made the beer extremely drinkable . This yeast works fast , on this fairly low gravity beer it was bubbling in less then 12 hours and done in a few days. Bottled on day 14 and tested a bottle after three days to see how it was coming a long to my surprise it was fully carbed . Brew it you'll be glad you did.March 16, 2014
- Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 13 answersDoes this recipe come with instructions like mash temperature, sparge temperature, etc?BEST ANSWER: THe instructions are fairly straight forward if you have brewed all grains in the past. If not you may have to look up some terminology. But back to your original question, yes, it comes with all the info you need. Hope that helps and good luck.What is the timing on the addition and amounts of the Fuggle hops?BEST ANSWER: Greetings fellow brewer,
The short (easy) answer is that the 1 oz Fuggle hops are added at the beginning of the boil.
Whenever you need info on a recipe, go to the web page and find the kit. Under the picture of a pint glass you'll find some tabs. Look under the "Additional Information" tab. You should find a link to the instructions. For the Nut Brown Ale it says 60 min. That means you boil them for 60 min, or you add them when your count down timer hits 60, Which is at the start of the 60 min boil.
Good luck and Enjoy!What water volumes should be used for the mash and then the sparge? I'm guessing about 4.5 gallons each but that may be high as it's based on other recipes that used about 13 lbs of malted grain. This recipe includes less than 10 lbs of malts (probably since it's lower-gravity). Just wondering about water volumes.BEST ANSWER: I used a sparge and mash calculator that i found online i think it was from brewers friend or something like that. Once you input your grain bill weight it calculates everything for you after thatWhat should the final gravity be? I have 1.014. Seems OK, but was hoping for maybe 1.010???BEST ANSWER: Anywhere from 1.014-1.010 is defiantly ok. I️ wouldn’t worry about it too much that’s not a big difference to worry about itI want to brew a maple brown ale. This looks like a good start, what are your thoughts on how much maple syrup to use as well when to use it during brewing process?BEST ANSWER: Adding it to the boil will break down a lot of the flavors you're looking for. I added my maple syrup in replacement for corn sugar, when bottling (Palmer's How To Brew has a table to help convert to the right amount).
