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


We frequently have the opportunity to help a fellow GFHBer develop a new recipe, as is the case with this recipe which was adapted from multiple Newcastle clone recipes. The final recipes are not shared with us as often as we would like, which we would post to our website for all to share. So when someone works as closely as Anthony from Texas has on this recipe, we want to share the spoils! While have continued to revise the grain and hops bill of this recipe to get it as close to a Newcastle Brown Ale, and were happy with this first attempt despite it not being quite on the mark. We would call it a "Session" Brown Ale if it were just a little lower in ABV. The flavor according to conventional beer drinkers who were also drinking an actual Newcastle Brown Ale described it as a lighter version than the original, but having all the flavor components there. We look forward to posting the final version of this recipe in the upcoming months...which will be posted as it's own separate recipe.
