Hey all,

After perusing this months issue of BYO and seeing their version of a newkie clone (2/3 amber 1/3 old ale) I decided to put the beer kit my mom got me for Xmas to use and try to to a partial mash clone of it.

Here is what I did, how do you guys think it'll turn out?

3.3 lbs Amber LME
2 lbs Amber DME
0.5 lbs Crystal 60 L
(Kit contents)
0.5 lbs. Special B Malt
0.25 lbs. Chocolate Malt 350 L
1 lb. 2-Row
(My additions)

1 oz. Willamette 60 min.
0.5 oz. Willamette 5 min.

Nottingham ale yeast

Think I'll get close? Its boiling away as we speak

Don't know if it will be newcastle, but it sounds like a nice brown anyway.

That might come in a bit dark for the Dog... your brew should be around 21 SRM according to ProMash... New Castle is a bit lighter in color than that IMO (anyone have the SRM of Newkie???) It should still be quite a tasty brew though... and will be a brown for sure... let us know how it turns out!

If ya do this one again, maybe switch out the chocolate with .5 lb of Brown malt...

Hmmm... now I want to brew another brown LOL

let's see... maybe something like this:

mikey's 3rd Time's a Charm Northern Brown Ale

5 lbs Munton's Extra Light DME
1 lb Brown Malt (~70 SRM)
.5 lbs Special B
.5 lbs Aromatic malt
.5 lbs Biscuit malt
1 lb Pale 2-Row

.5 oz EKG at 60, 30, 15 and 2 minutes

OG: 1.053
IBUs: 26
SRM: 18

looks like it's time to place an order

whadda ya think???
