Newcastle Clone Update.
Ok, popped a couple and they are very tasty but it isn't any Newcastle clone. More carbonation than your Newcastle and sweeter as well.
Leads me to another question. I've now been able to begin consuming my first two ever batches brewed. These are Extract kits, steeping grains, pellets and dry yeast kits. A Nutbrown Ale (newcastle clone)
(kit created by local brewer) and a Euro Bock (by Brewers Best/came with my equip Liquid malt extract. Too lazy to type ingredients). Both seem to be sweeter than my acquired taste prefers. I know the styles/tastes; Head retention on both have been quite nice yet almost too carbonated. Buzz factor is very well
I have another in the fermenter which is a apricot wheat for the wife that I know is going to be sweet.
Anyway, I'm just curious on the sweeter taste I'm receiving. Is it the pellets, dry yeast, extracts in general be it DME or LME? I know the recipes I've chosen have this potential but... Well, my next venture will be a serious IPA and if that comes out sweet I'll be pissed and know somethings up!!
If I could only email some taste tests
