Mash grains using single-step infusion process at 155 degrees F. Sparge to kettle and boil for 75 to 90 minutes. Add brown sugar. Add 2 ounces of Goldings to boil for 1 hour. Add 1 ounce of Fuggles 15 minutes later. Force chill to 65 degrees and pitch yeast. Ferment 7-10 days at 65-68 degrees F. Rack to secondary fermenter and rest another 1-2 weeks. Prime and bottle or keg, as usual. To adapt this recipe for extract brewing, substitute 6.6 pounds of golden or light malt extract syrup and 2 pounds of light dry malt extract for the 11 pounds of pale malt. Steep the crystal and chocolate malts in steaming water, strain out grains, then add the extracts and the brown sugar. Proceed with the rest of the recipe as described.
Age several months, if desired, possibly in wood if you're adventurous
