Anyone have a recipe? Recently rekindled a fondness for Newcastle.

TIA

IIRC, it's brewed as 2 separate batches which are blended.  I think BYO had a recipe a while back, although I can't find it now.

Yes Denny you are correct once again.  ;)

According to Michael Jackson, Newcastle’s brewers blend two different beers to produce their brown ale. One portion is brewed to a very high gravity so that fermentation creates extremely estery (fruity) notes they cannot achieve at normal beer gravities. That beer is then blended with a low-gravity “amber” beer to produce their standard at an original gravity of 1.045.

Here's the article.

euge:
Decent article if a little dated. Looks like I will be buying my Newcastle in the future. I'm just not prepared at this time to take on blending. 

Thanks.

Here is a link to the brewing network "can you brew it" for a Northern English Brown Ale.

I know it isn't Newcastle but it's in the ballpark.
