Yep, that's what I'm reading. I think I'm going to do that. Also, can I add the gelatin straight into the primary after the two weeks are up? I don't think I'm going to have a secondary open.

Hey Biermuncher, I'm thinking of trying this as a 5 gallon partial mash with the following ingredients:

2.5 lbs. Munton's Extra Light Dry Extract
2 lbs. Briess 2-Row Brewer's Malt
1 lb. Flaked Maize
1/2 lb. Briess 2 Row Carapils
1/2 lb. Briess 2 Row Caramel 20
1/2 lb. Briess 2 Row Caramel 60
1/2 lb. Briess 2 Row Caramel 80
1/4 lb. Thomas Fawcett Pale Chocolate Malt

1/2 Oz. Target Pellets @ 60 mins
1/4 Oz. Kent Goldings @ 15 mins
Safale S-04 Yeast

Most is just half of the original, minus the roasted barley. Does this recipe look reasonable?

I'm going to try my above recipe with the exception of 1 oz of willamette hops instead of 1/2 oz of Target. I'll let you know in about 8 weeks how it turns out :P

Sounds like a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

HOLY CRAP BIERMUNCHER! This stuff is delicous! I just popped my first bottle after a week and it's fantastic. I didn't quite get the same color or flavor as you, due to accidentally adding about a 1/4 lb of roasted barley for 5 gallons (lol), but even though I jacked up the grain bill a bit, this is a great beer. It almost came out like a mild porter? I'll be posting some pics soon.

Thanks again sir,
J

So I got the ingredients to make this, and I can't remember if my LHBS was out and I substituted, or I just grabbed the wrong packet, but instead of Target Hops, I got Challenger.

Looking up hop profiles, I see for a substitute for Target it says "None really quite like it, maybe East Kent Goldings" which is what we have later in the boil.

So I decided to use the Goldings for the 60 min, and the 15 min, but I decided to add a 1/2 oz. of the Challenger at 30 min. I'm sure it will turn out, but I'm just wondering how different it's going to be, since this was an attempt at a clone.

Any thoughts?

Hmm, I'm not a hop expert, but I think you will be ok. Here's a pretty good hop substitution page http://http://www.howtobrew.com/sect...hapter5-3.html

I transferred to Secondary tonight and Yeah! It tastes good!
Very similar to Newcastle.

If I hadn't added the extra 1/2oz. of Challenger, it would probably be dead on.

Been in bottles now 3 weeks and tastes great.
Little darker than it should be due to using too much roasted barley, but it still tastes wonderful. Thanks BM
