Well,

I did my side-by-side last night, and I think it was a success. The nose seemed identical to the commercial version; the taste was very very close; the color was a little darker, but I knew it would be going in; and head retention was the same on both (Terrible. Maybe my glasses weren't as clean as they could be). I'm going to run a 5 gallon batch next, with the following bills:

10 lb 2-Row
2.5 lb Munich 10L
1 lb Crystal 60L

Mash for 60 minutes at 154°

2 oz Centennial (10 AA) 60 mins
1.25 oz Simcoe (13 AA) 10 mins
1.25 oz Simcoe (13 AA) 1 min
1.25 oz Amarillo (9.5 AA) 1 min
2.5 oz Amarillo Dry hopped for 7 days

I fermented in primary for 21 days, dry-hopped for 7 days, then cold-crashed and bottled. Hopefully someone will give it a try, and let me know how it turns out for them. Happy Brewing!
