Elkwood Brown

This is a hoppy American Brown Ale. I recently revised the recipe to make use of some of the "New Grains" being stocked at the Home Beer, Wine and Cheese Shop, and it won the little New Grains Recipe Contest we had this summer. It also took a first place in the L.A. County Fair.

Special Instructions / Notes: 

This brew also formed one half of a Parti-Gyle brew - with one mash, runnings mixed to create two worts - this American Brown at 1.065 OG and an English Mild at 1.040 OG. They were boiled simultaneously in two kettles, and hopped appropiately.
