Brewing Notes:

This brown ale resembles Newcastle Brown Ale and is another excellent home brew choice.  It spent 7 days in the primary fermenter, 7 days in the secondary, and 4 weeks aging at room temperature under 20 psi in the keg.  


I am very impressed with the flavor and color of this brown ale. The clarity of this home brew continues to amaze me.  This brown ale is every bit as delicious as it looks.
