Nice, I happen to be in OC right now. Maybe I'll shoot by and give this a shot to see if I want to brew it.

Thanks

It's a nice beer. One of the favorites I've had from The Bruery.

The thing about this is -- there were two major problems with the episode they gave for this. They were F&*(& around so much that they weren't focused on the reason they were (supposedly) there.

First, they gave the recipe twice (first as percents, than as pounds), but the percentages and poundages didn't match up at all. Obviously I'm not including the brewer interview part as one of the times...

% version was the following (I put the poundage after in parentheses, assuming 70% eff and 6 gallons post boil, since this is the efficiency/post-boil CYBI uses):
61% 2-row (10.03 lbs)
22% rye malt (3.62 lbs)
7% C60 (1.15 lbs)
4% Brown malt (.66 lbs)
4% crystal rye (.66 lbs)
2% chocolate rye (.33 lbs)

Right before the end, they ran through the poundage (for a 10 gallon batch, but here adjusted for the usual 6 gallon post boil):
# version:
10.48 lbs 2-row (64%)
3.78 lbs rye malt (23.1%)
1.2 lbs C60 (7.4%)
.69 lbs Brown malt (4.2%)
.12 lbs crystal rye (0.8%)!!!!!
.09 lbs chocolate rye (0.6%)!!!

This isn't a scaling issue -- it's a different recipe. And it isn't the "old" brewery (or should I say Bruery?) recipe, either... Aside from anything else, the recipes give substantially different color and flavor profiles (flavor's subjective, but the color difference is the difference between an amber beer (around 15 SRM) and a brown (around 20 SRM). This suggests the amber colored recipe is more accurate (which is the poundage one here) since the beer itself is more amber than brown in color. But that's very much a guess, and really doesn't mean anything (color can be deceiving).

Second, the hopping was given as 21g of Warrior @ 17.6%aa, 60 minutes in the boil.
Supposedly this gives 22 IBUs, per the episode. Not by any formula I've ever come across. Try something like 51 IBUs, plus or minus a few, depending on your formula of choice. I'm guessing this was the amount used in the 10 gallon batch and wasn't adjusted? But they didn't catch it when they ran through it (and this should have been obvious on its face).

The hopping I'm less concerned with, since that's the probable adjustment (basically, cut them in half for the usual batch size). But there's something loopy in the grain bill, and it isn't simply explained by the updated brewery recipe.

I am going to listen to the Brewer's interview soon and try to figure this out.

They gave a 12 gallon recipe. So it just needs to be divided in half. It's my understanding that they do the interview, usually with the head brewer, then ask the other brewers who brew it regularly for info. They then correct the recipe and give that later in the show.

Here's what I got.

6gal

OG: 1.065
9.28 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 63.9 %
3.35 lb Rye Malt (4.7 SRM) Grain 23.0 %
1.10 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 7.5 %
0.61 lb Brown Malt (65.0 SRM) Grain 4.2 %
0.11 lb Crystal Rye (60.0 SRM) Grain 0.8 %
0.08 lb Chocolate Rye Malt (250.0 SRM) Grain 0.6 %
0.37 oz Warrior [17.60%] (60 min) (First Wort Hop) Hops 25.9 IBU

Mash at 153F for 60 minutes.

With that much rye malt, wouldn't you need some hulls to prevent a stuck mash. I've heard that mashing a lot of rye causes stuck mashes.

Thnx, Eric... but be careful; something that also comes out later in this (fairly sloppy) episode is that the brewery's recipe changed after the interview but before the clone attempt. So they changed the clone recipe to match the new brewery recipe when doing the clone. This updated and correct recipe is supposedly the clone recipe they gave us, but who knows what we got, since even that ended up being inconsistent.

Not to veer from the point, but I felt that this episode of CYBI was especially indicative of a general slide in quality (not just the recipe issues, but just about the entire podcast episode is a mess).

It was a train wreck! I think they all have too much going on at the same time now. But the recipe I posted is the scaled down one of the final recipe they gave.

You can definitely add rice hulls.
