I couldn't agree more. I'm just feeling the dark beers right now. I'm not too sure why considering I live in Houston, Tx, but I guess it is in the 80's. I just made 10 gallons of porter and I'm already wanting to brew more!

Im brewing up this clone on Weds...(Veterans Day) I tweeked the recipe and substituted all fuggles for my hops (Since I have them, but it took my IBU's to just under 20) Cut the Barley out completely and cut the crystal 20 in half (Since thats all I have.) I am also gonna mash at 157-158 for a lil fuller body.

I cant wait to get it goin....newcastle has to be one of my favs!!

I did a quick conversion to extract in beersmith, and it told me to use table sugar as a substitute for the flaked corn. Will that have flavor implications? I'm not familiar with flaked corn as an ingredient

So I made this with an OG of 1.048. A little over a week ago, I transferred to secondary and it was 1.020. I just checked it, 8 days later and it's still at 1.020. Shouldn't it be lower? It's been in a pretty constant 72 degree chamber.

Tastes good though! :-P

I actually asked some questions when this happened to me as well. Mine finished at 1.014 @ about 3.5% abv. This isn't a very big beer. For a brown such as this to finish between 1.015-1.020 isn't abnormal. I must say I'm really enjoying it as a low abv beer. It's low abv, but big flavor (I mashed at 156).

I also mashed at around 156 or so. I brewed this with my Swmbo's bro-in-law and I decided to bottle it b/c he wanted to take some. I let it primary for two weeks and omitted the gelatin. It is wonderful! I've still got about a half of a case, but they're not going to last very long. This is some delicious stuff! It's probably going to be my house brown.

Bottled tonight. It tasted a little roastier than I anticipated since I omitted the roasted barley, but otherwise it was yummy. I'll check on it again after 3 weeks in the bottle.

I went through all of the pages of this post pretty extensively when I was getting ready to make my brew, taking notes and all. But I don't remember seeing anything about the gelatin addition to the secondary. I've never heard of doing this before, so I'm wondering:
What kind of gelatin (just lik plain ol' Knox?), how much, what is it supposed to do, is it necessary? All of that basic and necessary questions. I'm about done with primary, so hopefully I can get a response within the next couple of days... Can anyone answer those?

Just bottled this bad boy. Our OG came in way high: 1.050. FG was 1.011, which should give us about 5.3% ABV after bottle carbing.
First time I ever tried the gelatin trick, and I gotta say, I have never made beer this clear before. Amazingly clear. Awesome.
Took a few sips from the graduated cylinder -- tasted a bit overly-malty, but I think there was some of that sweetness that was trying to come through. Hoping bottle conditioning will mellow it out and make it reasonably close to original Newcastle.
