This recipe is our extract take on a ‘Newkie’ – The Newcastle Brown Ale from the UK.
The Newkie was once the most popular beer in the UK and the ‘go to’ pint of the working class. Still popular today around the world this brown ale is full bodied with a smooth malty / caramel backbone well balanced with the Goldings Hop additions.
A very sessionable brown ale, this recipe is in the style of the Newcastle Brown Ale and might not be an exact clone, but if you like the commercial offering then you will be sure to love this brew.
This recipe is another great introduction to experimenting with hops, wet malts and steeping grains for the beginner or intermediate brewer who wants to take their tin kit brewing to the next level.
