Newcastle Brown Ale clone

Newcastle Brown Ale is actually a blend of two beers. Brewers blend a strong, dark ale that has been aged and a smaller, younger amber ale. As a consequence, this average-strength brown ale shows some plum and raisin characteristics more frequently encountered in an old ale. You can try to make the blended version and those instructions can be found in the May/June 2006 issue. Here is a more simplified single batch version.
