Nut brown

I brewed the nut brown kit 9 days ago that I bought during the 14.92 sale (not my go to style but wanted something different). OG 1.043 checked the gravity after 1 week it was at 1.008. Taste was good however it was a little underwhelming (I’m sure carbonation would help). I’m certainly going to give it a chance before making my final observations. Thinking ahead I think I would like to revisit this kit. Swapping the 6 lbs of gold extract with maris otter extract instead. Any thoughts?

I had brewed the nut brown once after having Smithwick’s brown ale. Not too much going on with it but a lot like the Smithwicks. At the time didn’t consider trying to improve it. Brewed the Caribou Slobber next and have’t stopped.

Yeah I’ve always heard good things about the slobber. Like the nut brown it didn’t really appeal to me but I think I’ve opened up to them.

Did brew couple times nut brown. The first time ok. But next brew. I did. Let it stand two weeks longer in second. And did dryhop. Came out much beter . Yes indeed the carbou slobber. Just a nice beer to brew and drink. Me. For example the recipy says. 4 weeks. I add 2 more weeks fermenting / condition. It seems to work total time before kegging 6 weeks
