brewed it and it is marvelous. Got about a 1/4 keg of it left now and it's about the best it's tasted, it's been in the kegerator for about 2 months now.

I listened to the podcast and now I am going to make me some dead guy!!! The question I have is that during the interview John Maier said that they used Great Western malt C15, which has a lovibond of 13-17 (according to their website). The cloned recipe uses carastan malt, from what I can see on Austin hombrew's website has a lovibond of 30-37. How is/was the colour going to be affected from utilizing different coloured malts? In addition, what is the flavor difference between carastan and caramalt in a dead guy clone, other than the colour (caramalt from simpsons is 25-35 L)?


edit caramalt from simpsons is 25-35 EBC, which I guess answers my own colour question, but what about flavor?

There's Carastan light (13-17) and Carastan dark (30-37). Though they are usually both referred to as just "Carastan"

Are the IBU's calculated Rager or Tineseth?

From first post:

All recipes are 6 gallons post-boil, 70% efficiency, Morey for color, 15% evaporation, 7.27 gallons preboil, Rager IBU, and most hops are in grams not ounces. Most, if not all recipes are primary only (no secondary).

Rogue lists Dead Guy at 40 IBU. The recipe however and the CYBI interview states 49 IBU.

That's a pretty huge difference.

Has anyone done this with the hop schedule listed above?

I think I have responded to this question three times since yesterday. Of course I don't mind, I am just surprised that there is suddenly this large interest in the IBU calculations. The simple answer is, the difference is just a manifestation of the IBU formula used. Rager produces 49, Tinseth about 38, Garetz about 30 for this hop bill. Rogue most likely measures theirs at 40.
