Gritty's Clone

Source: Tim Neall
Recipe added: 03/01/98

I was going through my old brewing logs and found this recipe. It was the sixth batch I made. I think it was based on a recipe in the TNCJOHB and was supposed to be a california common beer, but turned out more like a brown ale, not my favorite style. It actually tastes very similar to Gritty McDuff's Brown ale. To revise the recipe, I would get rid of the toasted malt and add Irish moss. It might also be good to use light extracts and add color with specialty grains, perhaps chocolate malt.
