Adventures in Homebrewing in Dearborn Michigan has a clone kit they sell. It's currently in my secondary.

Here's a recipe from Brew Your Own. I've never tried it, but it looks pretty tasty.

Fat Tire Amber Ale (5 gallons, extract with grains)

Ingredients:

5 lbs. Laaglander plain extra-light DME
0.50 lb. crystal malt (20° Lovibond)
0.50 lb. crystal malt (40° Lovibond)
0.50 lb. carapils malt
0.50 lb. Munich malt
0.50 lb. biscuit malt
0.50 lb. chocolate malt
3 AAUs Willamette pellet hops (0.66 oz. at 4.5% alpha acid)
1.33 AAUs Fuggle pellet hops (0.33 oz. at 4% alpha acid)
2 AAUs Fuggle pellet hops (0.50 oz. at 4% alpha acid)
1 tsp. Irish moss
2/3 to 3/4 cup corn sugar to prime
Wyeast 1056 or BrewTek CL-10

Step by step:

Steep specialty grains in 3 gallons of water at 154° F for 45 minutes. Remove grains and add dried malt extract. Bring to boil and add 0.66 oz. Willamette pellet hops. Boil for 60 minutes and add Irish moss. Boil 10 minutes and then add 0.50 oz. Fuggle hops. Boil another 20 minutes, add remaining Fuggles and remove from heat. Cool to about 70° F and transfer to fermenting vessel with yeast. Ferment at 64° to 68° F until complete (7 to 10 days), then transfer to a secondary vessel, or rack into bottles or keg with corn sugar. (Try lowering the amount of priming sugar to mimic the low carbonation level of Fat Tire.) Lay the beer down for at least a few months to mellow and mature for best results.
All-grain option: Omit extract and mash 6 lbs. pale malt with specialty malts in 9 quarts of water to get a single infusion mash temperature of 154° F for 45 minutes. Sparge with hot water of 170° F or more to get 5.5 gallons of wort. Bring to boil and use above hopping and fermentation schedule.
OG = 1.050
FG = 1.011
IBUs = 16

I don't think I've ever seen any beer clone attempted as much as FT...

Seriously, it's the beer that turn most people on to micro-brews...it's a good beer, yes...but there's lotsa good beers out there.

No kidding.... I think I could sit down and name about 50+ other beers that I would want to clone before I would do Fat Tire...

So how's the recipe DB coming along? This has to be an FAQ, right there with Hoegaarden.

I wanted to do a Fat Tire Clone as my first brew, but it wound up being my second. I am drikning it now (and I mean now). Its a kit from Austin Homebrew...which I reccommend because it is pretty good. Not sure if it tastes like Fat Tire because I havent had it in about a year, but close to my memory of it.
