Default Boddington Pub-Ale Clone

I'm drinking a Bod right now that probably is from Strangeway Brewery in Manchester before it was sold.

It tastes pretty damn awesome. It has a super-creamy head. - Nitro widget out of the can. (Some leftovers from a party in April....)

Does anyboy have a extract clone recipe?

The head is almost as good as Cheesefoods Vanilla Caramel Creme Ale. It looks almost like a milkshake.

Check out the pub ale recipe in my sig. I designed it as a Boddy clone and it turned out spot on--I'm not kidding. The yeast is key.

That beer won a first in a competition in the Standard Bitter category.

The wheat flakes are for head retention. Every HBS has them. They (along with the oats) give it a nice rocky head that last forever, giving it that nitro "feel" for those of us who can't afford real nitro.

Default Head Obsession!!!

Dude,

I love a head!!! Good and dense...

No, really. I like a big pour with large head, wait to so see how it settles out in the glass. Even on BMC so I can diss it...

Looking for belgian lace.

I have a brown ale that I absolutely love at the pour, awesome head, great smell and taste.

I'm gonna give this a try... Thanks a bunch!!! This will spurn a bunch a new ideas for me!!!

Looks like a good recipe. What does the Sugar do for it? Apart from raise ABV.

I'm curious to know what the sugar is for too. I followed an extract recipe for Boddy and it called for cane in the boil and brown (3/8 cup packed) for priming.

It didn't taste too bad for green beer when sampling at bottling time...unlike a few others I've tasted.

Edit: See the "-ish" in my signature? Oopsie, at brew time I realized I only had two of the three necessary hops. I had to up the NB for lack of Fuggle.

I added the brown sugar for mainly 1 reason. I wanted kind of a hint of a caramelly, nutty taste. It worked out pretty good.

I cooked the sugar on low heat for a while before I added it to the brew pot, and it caramelized a little bit.

In my opinion, next to the Pliny clone, this was the best beer I've ever done. For a first shot at the recipe, it turned out exactly what I wanted it to be. In fact, I anointed this beer my "house beer".

Dude--I just racked that beer this morning.

I didn't taste it (it was like 7:30 in the morning), but it smelled spectacular: subtle EKG aroma and a nice nuttiness. I think this is going to be really good.

Cool. I hope you like it! I'm brewing a Pub Ale next. It is looking like Monday will be a brewday. I just cleared a carboy so I'm ready to brew!!!!
