Default Bass Ale clone starter?

I'm looking for a new house recipe to work on and want to perfect a BassAle clone

Any all grain recipes out there? I searched and didn't find much.

Thanks

Clone recipe on HBT here, though I understand Bass uses about 20% corn in the grain bill, so you may want to make adjustments to the original recipe.

Thanks I didn't see that one - I always thought it was lower in alcohol

Ya most recipes I've seen are pale malt, crystal 60 - there's gotta be more than that to it

That recipe is not even close. I have one that is dead on. It uses 2 lb. of flaked corn, 1/2 lb of C-60, 1/2 lb of Honey malt and 1/2 oz. of roasted barley. Plus 2-row for an OG of around 1.048-1.050.

The hops is way off in that recipe too. I believe I used fuggles for about 20 IBU.
