5kg ashock1

The thing with brown malt is it has quite a strong flavour so you dont huge amounts. Fullers London Porter (Graham Wheeler recipe) uses 665g for 23L. It's the only clone brew I've made(Mind you I've haven't made many due to the difficulty in cloning a beer) that tasted almost exactly like the original

I would use it with pale 50/50 with a bit of black malt. Fuggles, Goldings and Windsor.

For a 23 litre, 5Kg grain bill:

In brown ales I’d use up to 200g brown malt.

In porter, brown porter, and stout up to 500g brown malt.
