Default Free Beer (For reverse engineer job)

Yes, I'm serious. Now, it will only be one, but it will be free. I have posted probably 4 or 5 threads about St. Peter's English (Organic) Ale. It's an English ale, pale ale I beilieve. I live in IN and its hard to find around here. Nobody knows much about it from what I can gather. Or, if they do they haven't seen my posts. I want to replicate this beer very badly. I want to at least get close. The probelm is I don't have the knowledge of ingredients that some people on here do. I know there are a handful of people out there that would be able to taste this and be able to "deconstruct" it. So, if that is you I'll send you one and you tell me what you think. Here is what I know.

My best guess is that this beer is a SMaSH or very close to it. The malt and the hop character are simple but work together very well. I also have reason to believe that their water may be unique. But like I said before, I don't know anything about replicating from taste so anyone that can SERIOUSLY give this a try let me know.

Is this AG, PM, or extract? I have never tasted it but I am sure we can get a recipe for you. It's weird because they claim traditional English Hops in their site, but then state they use the New Zealand Hallertau. I can get you my AG interpretation if you want to then convert it.

Forrest at AHS has all but offered to clone beer, and he's pretty dead on Balls for every one I've seen or heard about. You could PM him...not to spoil the contest.

Hell its not a contest. I just want to find someone who can actually do this instead of someone who wants a quality beer for free.

Zoe, this will be AG. I would appreciate your interpretation, but how can you pull that off if you haven't tasted it? I was confused about the hop situation myself. I got an email back from someone at St. Peter's and she used the word "Hallertan." I have no idea. I do know that it has a pretty strong hop taste but not much of the bitterness. So, I would think most of the additions are late.

I don't want anything in return, I'd be glad to help.

Hehe. I am pretty good at interpretation, and I can garner key items from reviews of the beer. I am thinking they have a very good punch of flavor addition. It is the Hallertau from NZ, they change their tune for several brews. They have a very specific water profile which sounds very high in Carbonate. That will be key to reproducing what you are after. You'd most likely have to do several renditions to get it as close as possible is my guess. We can do that over time .

Yeah, I don't know why but I feel that the water is different somehow. This beer is just very "clean" tasting. I can't put my finger on it. That's why I'm here. My inclination is that it has a very simple grain profile or that is a SMaSH. Maybe all Marris Otter?

Hmm I don't think so, the color wouldn't fit. I am guessing some Biscuit malt. You are right though, probably a solid single malt background.

If we can narrow down the Maltster, that would be really beneficial. It is supposedly malt from the "soil association" coming from Norfolk. If we can get the characteristics of that Malt then it will help tremendously.
