    Hey

    Just wondering how close this was to the original and if the hopping schedule was given to you from the brewer?

    Looking to try this recipe it looks great

    Cheers

      Yes. That’s from the email they sent me though I swapped out Columbus for the originally recommended Nugget or Magnum. At the time I emailed with them they were experimenting with Australian Ella in addition to Galaxy.

      It was a pretty close clone, I’d call it 75-85% there. It was missing some of the dank middle overtones when I tasted it side by side. At the time I wasn’t doing a real whirlpool (sub 180 degree) and it was just a flame out addition really. I think now that my brewing processes have improved I will try this one again.

      I don’t know if I would go to the trouble of building up the yeast from bottle dregs, they said they use Chico so White Labs 001 or I’d use us-05 (I’m on a dry yeast kick).

      Let me know if you try it and how it turns out.
