Default Dogfish head 90 minute help

I'm ready to attempt my second batch of beer and was wondering if this type is going to be too advanced for my experience and skill level. My first batch is still in primary but going crazy and I've been bitten by the brewing bug.

Did it as my second batch as well. The only real downside is the continual hopping which is a bit of a PITA. As always, make sure you pitch enough yeast (use Mr. Malty's calculator) and control ferm temps.

If you want to get close with the malt character try doing a partial mash and using Thomas Fawcett amber malt. This is the same malt DFH uses.

Check this thread out for more details, there is a partial mash recipe on page 2. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/dogf...-clone-260675/

Yep - close to the original although slightly maltier. Here's my recipe which was taken from somewhere either on this board or some other place:

Recipe: Dogfish Head 90 Minute Clone
Brewer: Mike
Asst Brewer:
Style: Imperial IPA
TYPE: Partial Mash
Taste: (35.0) The final taste was very good and very close to the original. This was slightly maltier and fuller bodied tasting. The original is a little brighter in flavors. Overall a great clone and was great to drink!

----------------------------

Steep crushed grains in 1.1 gallons (4 L) of water at 150 *F (66 *C) for 45 minutes. Boil the wort for 105 minutes. Starting with 90 minutes left in the boil, begin slowly and evenly adding hops to the kettle. (This works out to a little over .25 oz. of hops every 7.5 minutes. Another approach is that the kettle hops comes to 89 grams. Round to 90 and use 9 grams every 10 minutes.
