Making a brown ale this weekend with the wife's grandfather. We're going to do a holiday version which we've tried before with some success. Base recipe is: 7lbs Dry Malt Extract – light 10 oz Special Roast (US) 8 oz Chocolate (BE) 6 oz Victory (US) 6 oz Caramel/Crystal 80L (US) American Ale VS-05 We usually add scotch soaked oak chips as well. Was planning to add vanilla bean, clove, maybe orange peel. Any suggestions? Would like to have this one come out really good.
