Beer Style: English Brown, American Brown 
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 gallons


This recipe was developed by Anthony G from Texas who is an avid BIAB GFHBer. Instructions include two brewing options: BIAB or Mash Tun. Anthony G has been a guest GFHB blogger and has shared a lot of his experiences using the BIAB brewing method. It is note worthy the amount of enzymes required when using the BIAB method due to the dilute mash conditions. This is a subject that Anthony G goes into detail about in his blog article 'BIABing with Anthony G from Texas' in April 2018. Anthony G set out to create a full flavor beer with a complex flavor profile that is very nutty and malty.

Anthony G reports he got a OG of 1.060 which would be an 80% efficiency using the BIAB method; and would increase the final ABV to 5.9%!
