Default 21A Bitter American

They list their grain bill and hops used on their website, though not % or times. I have come up with this in the link. Anyone have any thoughts, especially about the grain bill part? I know based on their website these are the proper grains and hops. Any insight would be great.

Hopville . "Bitter"
Thanks.

I'm not following you... the % of each grain is to the left of the weight and the hops times are also to the left of the weight. So I'm not sure what you are asking.

That recipe is what I came up with, based on just a listing of grains and hops they say are in the beer. Those % and times are my guess at what may work, and I wanted to know what others thought of that.

I got the info on the grains and hops from their website Here Bitter American Beer in a Can | 21st Amendment Brewery and it shows nothing about weights, times or % s

Ahhh, Ok... 21st Amendment isn't sold around here so I didn't get the 21A reference! After looking at their description and comparing your recipe to that description, I think you are solid. I think your malt percentages and hop times would be right in line with that "style" of beer...but not personally knowing the beer, thats the best I can say. Good luck!

Hey there NF, after enjoy 21A Bitter American myself I put together this recipe. It was quite a hit and has been rebrewed several times. It may be a good basis by which to do your own exploring.

Cheers!

Thanks, but I am trying to stick to the ingredients that they list as being in the beer.

David,

CaraPils, I bet it's in there!
Columbus is a substitute for Warrior
Simcoe good luck finding it. Try the hop schedule if you can't find the simcoe.

Cheers!

I was talking more about the hops than the grains when I said using what is in there.

Simcoe I picked up a few ounces today, whole leaf.

Let me know how yours turns out! Wish I could find some Simcoe (pellets). Tried to by my pound, but supplier could not get an allocation.

Cheers!

It's out now! I have a friend who introduced me to this beer, and since then I'm on a mission to clone it. Let me know how it works out for you- I LOVE this beer and it's my brewing goal to make a hoppy beer that has enough malt to balance the hops and still clock in at under 5% ABV.

This is definitely my favorite commercial beer- so a clone recipe is just what I'm needing!
