Just getting back into brewing after a few years off. I am looking for a good brown ale recipe similar to Newcastle. Does anyone have an extract/specialty grains recipe that they are particularly proud of, and are willing to share? I didn't see one on the recipe thread.

thanks!

There are a couple there. I just posted one, Northern English Brown, I think it is better than Newcastle but I haven't had a good Newcastle in a while.

MO is a barley cultivar grown in England. It is preferred over "domestic" (ie North American) 2 row barley when brewing classic English style beers as it does contribute a distinctive flavour profile.

For the conversion try: http://www.onlineconversion.com/
