I just brewed this recipe based on the CYBI clone and information in post #1. It's the coolest ale fermenation I've done, slow and steady airlock. I'm using Wyeast 1056 at 62F-63F, temperature plot below:

I bottled my batch made with Weyermann Light Munich (6L), Rahr American 2-Row (1.8L) & Crisp Cara Malt (17L) and the color might be a little lighter than commercial Dead Guy ale. I plan on posting a pic in a few weeks when it's bottle carbonated.
Great beer!

3. Shorten the boil to 60 min, adjust bittering addition for 40 IBU Tinseth.
I brewed the CYBI recipe first, made notes compared with the commercial Dead Guy and am re-brewing this week based on the changes above. My experience with the CYBI recipe is that it was not a clone, but my use of light Munich probably made the biggest difference. The CYBI recipe wasn't clear regarding the Munich used. Here is my version with light Munich:

I'm also slightly increasing the whirlpool hops because the Tinseth IBU formula will result in more bittering hops. The interview indicated 38# of 7.5%AA bittering hops and 30# of whirlpool hops. I'm keeping that ratio the same based on 7.5%AA bittering hops. My actual bittering hops are 8.0%AA, but that change for IBU won't affect the whirlpool hop amount.
