Default Founder's Double Trouble Clone

Anyone have a clone recipe for Founder's Double Trouble? It's pretty high on my list of favorite beers and I'd love to try my hand at making it myself. I only have the capability to brew extract for now, but I've read that it's fairly easy to convert numbers between AG an extract recipes.

I guess no one has this excellent beer. I too am looking for a recipe for Founders Double Trouble DIPA

Looks like BYO Magazine has a clone recipe in their Dec ‘09 issue.

I emailed them and got this reply

20plato OG and the hopping is use Summit for bittering and a blend of Simcoe and Amarillo for flavor, finish and dry-hop. On my Pro-Mash recipe software I target 180 IBUs, but in reality I only extract probably half of that. Ferment it with an American yeast and dry hop it with at least a half ounce per gallon towards the end of primary fermentation.

I havent got round to brewing it yet though

I asked Soper to look it up in BYO dec 09 but its not Founders. That recipe was different and had chinook, columbus, centennial etc.

I'm determined to try this. But my calculations show an OG of 20, or about 1.083 converted, and an ABV of 9.3% which is what my bottle says, to be pretty damn near impossible. Well not impossible but 84% attenuation.

Here's an admittedly noobish shot in the dark at a recipe:

12 lbs 2-row
2 lbs Munich
1 lbs Crystal 10L

60m - 3 oz Summit
30m - 1 oz amarillo/simco each
15m - 1 oz amarillo/simco each
5m - 1 oz amarillo/simco each
dry hop: 1.5 oz amarillo/simco each

any suggestions? I think the color needs to be really light and a pretty low fg. What's the best attenuation yeast out there? I've got a Bell's clone that hit 1.008 on a pale ale, might be a good candidate!

If someone can clone the flavor AND the color AND the clarity they should consider starting a professional brewery, IMHO. It appears impossible to me. That beer is still good the next morning when it is warm and flat. That is certainly not the case for many a DIPA leftover on my nightstand.

I never had DIPA left over on my nightstand.

Did you ever try this? I would go with straight 2-row and double the dry hop
