Mikhail's Maple Nut Brown Ale
Source: Michael Middleton
Recipe added: 06/08/97
After 10 days in the bottle this beer was a little harsh. It actually tasted a little too malty. But after about 7-12 more days, it really mellowed out. The biscuit malt adds a nice nutty complement to the hint of maple syrup.
My only improvement in the future might be to try a darker maple syrup. Otherwise, I highly recommend this recipe.
