Default Bells Oberon Clone

Bells Oberon Clone

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Safale 05 (formerly US56)
Batch Size (Gallons): 6
Original Gravity: 1.52
Final Gravity: 1.010?
IBU: 17
Boiling Time (Minutes): 45
Color: 5 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): ?


This is allegedly Bells' recipe, which I scaled down to 6 gallon batch size:

6 lbs 2-row
4.5 lbs wheat
.75 lb Munich
.75 lb Carapils

.67 oz Hallertau 45 minutes
.9 oz Hallertau 30 minutes
.33 oz Hallertau 0 minutes
1 oz Saaz 0 minutes

I just brewed this tonight--the color looks perfect (golden, ever so slightly orange).

I'll update as I get tasting info.

Oh man, this sounds fantastic! Do you know what the equivalent would be for an extract or partial mash?

Just mashed in. I'll let you know how it turns out. I went with the Czech Saaz since that what I grabbed at the LHBS by accident.

I would like to know how this turned out? Oberon is one of my favorite beers. I live in Chicago and haven't had Oberon in over two years.

the recipe as posted is a little bland, doesn't have the right nose or taste of oberon. I adjusted the recipe to allow for more caramel notes and a citriuser(?) hop note.


removed the munich
added 1/2# ea crystal20L+60L

replaced the 30min hallertau with .5 oz cascade

i just brewed this today so i'll post back in 3-4 wks

And this is why one should NOT post a recipe until after it's tested... At least the OP stated that he had just brewed it..
