I can never find what I'm looking for on this site so I'll help you out. I got this recipe fromClone Brews
[/I]. Although the one batch I brewed didn't turn out quite like New Castle, it did turn out much better in mine and my friends opinions. I think the banana esters were much more prominant than in the real New Castle. I plan on brewing it again in a few weeks.
