Barry got rocking and rolling on his Nut Brown Ale last week, a Christmas gift from his girlfriend that I think she got from Beer-wine.com. It is a True Brew Maestro Series beer and has some crazy ingredients. Well, maybe crazy’s the wrong word, but I got a kick out of it anyway. It included liquid and dry extracts, brown sugar, Fuggle hops, and a great specialty grain bill: Chocolate, Dark Cyrstal, and Roasted Barley.  Can’t wait to try this one!

With the exception of the finale, Barry’s not doing anything special in brewing this beer. He’s following a standard extract brew method, but, instead of bottling, he’s kegging it.  We haven’t kegged beer before, so I don’t know what to expect.  We haven’t even really done our homework on it yet, but we do have all the hardware.  I’ll run down our keg set up some time soon, just as soon as we get it all set up.

Brown sugar adjunct.  Awesome!
