Default Brown Shugga

Does anyone know of a good Lagunitas Brown Shugga clone extract recipe? Is there a book that might have it? The google searches I have done have not turned up much of anything, and I would really like to get one started for the holiday season. Hopefully I am not too late.

Here's a link to a recipe. You will have to convert it to extract. Should get you in the ballpark. Check the Lagunitas website for information on ingredients as well.

Thanks for the link, looks like I am going to be doing a conversion on my day off tomorrow. I will post it up to see what you guys think, I have never converted a recipe before. Wish me luck

Do you have a bottle of Brown Shugga around? The alcohol percentage should be listed on the label. You'll need that to determine the target original gravity. The bottle might also have some recipe/ingredient information. The website had no information.

The recipe from Ruthless Brewing lists a starting gravity of 1.100. I don't think the Lagunitas recipe is that strong.

I have the bottle in front of me:

OG 1.100
Alc 9.9%
IBU 51.1

There are no ingredients on the label other then "Ale fermented with fresh brown sugar" which is pretty obvious.

Should be pretty straight forward..you're replacing the 2-row in the recipe with equivalent DME/LME to yeild the same SG. Leave the speciality grains & adjuncts as-is. That recipe is also a 11 gal batch so you will have to resize to your desired batch size. Using promash/beersmith/beertools or other brewing tool will help. The comments on the recipe are interesting.....

My bad on the OG. I've only drank that beer once - it's not one of my favorite Lagunitas brews - but looks like the clone recipe will be pretty close.

From an article by Jonny Lieberman (the author of the clone recipe)

Inspired, the gloves came off and I brewed a clone of Lagunitas Brown Shugga' . Instead of brown sugar (the bland supermarket variety is really just white sugar dyed with molasses), I used a pound each of Muscavado, Demerara and Piloncillo, all of which are available at any Whole Foods. Not to brag, but I much prefer mine to the original. The clone tastes as if a half-dozen Carmellos were tossed into the boil. I've also had good luck with Turbonado.

A link to the entire article - a good read for info on brewing big beers.

I am going to have to play with one of those programs to see how to to it. I have never messed with them before...

Anyone know of a replacement for Muscovado? I am trying to put that into promash and there isnt an option for it.

Muscovado is just an unrefined brown sugar. Just use the cane sugar numbers.
