Hi

This is the first recipe with multiple specialty malts for me. I'm shooting for something akin to Newcastle Brown Ale, but with more flavor and body. Basically I'm using a little bit of every kind of steeping grain I have in stock. The two hops are also the only British kinds I have. ABV for this recipe is 4.6 %.

Quote:
Style: Northern English Brown Ale
TYPE: Extract

Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Batch Size: 10,00 L
Boil Size: 8,00 L
Estimated OG: 1,047 SG
Estimated Color: 18,2 SRM
Estimated IBU: 20,2 IBU
Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amount Item Type % or IBU
1,25 kg Light Dry Extract (8 ebc) (4,0 SRM) Dry Extract 78,1 %
0,15 kg Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60,0 SRM) Grain 9,4 %
0,10 kg Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2,0 SRM) Grain 6,3 %
0,05 kg Carafa I (337,0 SRM) Grain 3,1 %
0,05 kg Roasted Barley (300,0 SRM) Grain 3,1 %

The recipe is in the specifications for a Northern English Brown Ale, but I'd love to get some feedback and suggestions from more experienced brewers.

Looks good. Newcastle is unusual in that it is a blend of two Browns, so it can be a bit difficult to clone. I've never used Dextrine malt in a Brown, but it will give you a little more body.

Note: I've done enough work with metric measurements, so that isn't a problem. But using , for the decimal point always throws me off.

Thanks. I know it's not going to be a clone of Newcastle, but that's fine. Newcastle is a bit bland to me, anyway.

The Brewers Best English Brown Ale sounds like exactly what you need, it probably would be exactly like Newcaste if you made a 6 gallon batch out of the kit.

I think Yoopers Brown Ale is the same recipe.
