I treid a new castle recently and was amazed.

I would have guessed
10 lbs pale 2 row
8 oz crystal 60L

I seemed watered down from what I remembered.

Maybe I got a bad sixer.

Personally, I would not use Windsor. Anything but, IMO... now this all depends on your mash temp, but windor will usually (grain of salt) come out quite sweet with all your fermentables from grain & MaltExtracts, and sweet is not what I taste in a newcastle. Malty, yes... maybe a higher mash temp (like 158) with us-05 or notty (if you can get Notty to ferment for you that is). I only have experience with dry yeast.

That seems like a lot of specialties, couldn't you just use chocolate malt and crystal 60L and cut out the rest?

No, Newcastle tastes like lightly flavored water!

I hate it when someone asks about a recipe and then some ass asks "why the hell are you brewing that???"......

But....well..........you get it.

My caramel maerzen is what new castle would be if it was twice as much malt and flavor.

I just brewed a 'clone' on Sunday... Rogue Dead Guy Ale. Though, the kit was developed along with Rogue, so maybe clone isn't the right word.

If I was going to make a Newcastle clone, I'd probably modify it by adding lots of extra hops and an extra pound or two of light DME to make it drinkable.

My next 5 gallon batch is going to be a nut brown ale kit, and I am planning on doing the same thing.
