Newcastle Brown Ale Clone

Brown Ales are great beers for when you get off work and you want to pop something open.  This recipe is very much like Newcastle, I stumbled upon this one years ago and it has pretty much stayed true to the original recipe that I made.  If you are just getting into brewing your own beer, Brown Ale’s are great beers to start off with.  They are simple in flavor as well as ease of making, and most people have tried one before so you can usually calibrate if it’s actually good or not.  What I personally like about Brown Ales are that they not a polarizing beer.  Most people that enjoy beer can appreciate a brown ale.  Brown Ales are a British style beer, it has a nutty flavor to it with a little fruity ester to it as well.  If you are an all-grain brewer, use M.O for your base malt. Conversion is here.
