Has anyone tried this with the white labs manchester ale strain? It's rumored to be the Newcastle strain.

It will clear, it just needs some more time in the keg.

Yep. A good 2-3 weeks at 37 degrees in the keg will do wonders to clear almost any medium gravity beer.

It is indeed clearing and I had some friends over last night and the first comment I received was "WOW...... did you really make this stuff your self!"

So I did take credit for brewing it, but the real credit goes to all the posters in this thread and especially "BierMuncher" for the original recipe.

I now however have another problem...... I need to start brewing larger batches of beer, cause now the word it out that I make a decent brew!

Thanks to all!

Salute!

0.50 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine
0.41 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L
0.41 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L
0.41 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L
0.25 lb Chocolate Malt (450.0 SRM)


0.50 oz Target [11.00%] (60 min) Hops 21.4 IBU
0.25 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00%] (15 min) Hops 2.4 IBU

1 Pkgs Whitbread Ale (Wyeast Labs #1099) Yeast-Ale


I haven't made this one, so use it at your own peril, but I started with Biermuncher's recipe and converted it in beersmith. I took out the Roasted barley because it came to 0.04 lb. That's like, 4 grains
Has anybody tried this yet? I was looking for a partial mash newcastle clone but I came across this link and thought I might try this extract recipe instead. It looks like it would be impossible to convert this recipe into a partial mash due to the amount of non-fermentables.

I brewed this last weekend and my Og came out perfect. All is going well in the primary, but I think when I was measuring my grains out I added too much roasted barley. Hints of coffee are hitting hard when I've tasted my hydrometer samples. The color is off a bit too, but I'm hoping that once it clarifies it will lighten up.

Just had one of these from over a year ago. Still holding strong and bright as ever.

Alright, I brewed this ale on Sunday 10-4 all came out well. My og was 1.040 and I pitched my starter. I used whitebread yeast. Anyways, I was concerned on Tuesday b/c my airlock stopped bubbling, but I know that doesn't always mean that ferm has stopped. I took a gravity reading on Tuesday and I got 1.016. I took another today and it's still at 1.016. I have a packet of Nottingham, but I don't want to pitch it unless I have to b/c I want to keep the mild flavor from the whitebread yeast strain. What should I do?!

Thanks in advance,
J

You don't need anymore yeast. Leave it be. I'd let that thing sit for two weeks before racking to another vessel to clear up. 1016 is a decent finishing gravity for a brown...it will lend some residual sweetness. Nonetheless, you're likely to pick up another point or two over the next few days.
