Default Got my first request! now I need some help

I just got my first request to make a homebrew from a friend, but it’s for a beer that I’ve never even heard of: Abita Turbo Dog. I looked around online and did a search here for a recipe and I found a few that more or less follow this guideline:

5 lbs light DME
1.25 lbs 60L crystal malt
0.5 lbs chocolate malt
90 min boil
1.0 oz Chinook Hops @ 00 min
1.5 oz Willamette Hops @ 85 min
1.5 oz Willamette Hops @ Dry Hop
White Labs WLPOO4 Irish Ale or Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale

Anyone have any input as to this recipe? This will be the first stout I’ve ever made so I’m not sure how well this follows what a stout should be… much less how Turbo Dog should taste. It also looks like AHBS has a clone kit for this and I wondered if anyone had any experience with it.

Abita is out of/near Slidell, LA. Not a bad beer.

Austin Home Brew's kits are usually very close to the commercial version. I've got a Rogue Mocha Porter clone and a Blue Moon clone that have both been pretty close.

That also have the Turbo Dog clone.

It still wont be your first since it's not a stout


Is that the BYO recipe? If not, I can check later on.

That's pretty much the recipe in BYO Clone brews. O.G. is 1.054 and the IBU's are 32. The list Crystal 100 or Munton's crystal dark.

HA! The internet lied to me! I was lead to believe that Turbo Dog was a stout! Can you guys give me a hint as what it really is?

It's more like a dark brown ale.

I'd recommend you get your hands on a bottle of it before you brew so that you have an idea of what you're trying to achieve.

Abita makes a lot of good beers how is it that none of you have tried any of them? If you want some turbo dog I can get it and send it to you for the cost or something.
