Newcastle Clone

Newcaslte Nut Brown Ale is made from a blend of two different beers.  Working from this recipe as my guide, I’m attempting to do a single-batch replication using extract.

  • 4# light dry malt extract
  • 0.6# corn sugar
  • 0.5# Carapils malt
  • 0.5# Crystal malt 15L
  • 0.5# Crystal malt 60L
  • 0.33# Belgium Special B 180L
  • 0.25# Chocolate malt 350L
  • 0.5oz Target hops 11% boil for full hour. (possible subs: Nugget, Fuggle, Willamette, Admiral)
  • .25oz East Kent Golding 5% — last 15 minutes. (possible subs: Fuggle, Progress, First Gold)
  • Safeale S-04 yeast
  • Batch size: 5.5 Gallons

Batch #3 Notes:

  • Mini-mashed for 1 hour at 155-157˚F in a grain bag. Brought up to 170˚F and then rinsed with 170˚F water.
  • Broke the siphon out of the kettle through the chiller. Had to restart.
  • Pitched late on 2/3/2010
  • Held primary @69-71˚F. Finished bubbling after ~3 days Racked 2/10
  • Bottled 26 bottles worth on 2/20. Other half went into a keg.
  • ~$25 worth of ingredients
  • OG: 1.045 (calculated after measuring prior to dilution — might be rough)
  • FG: 1.010 — 4.6% ABV.  The real stuff is 4.7%, so, just about nailed that.
