This looks tasty, I hope I get to try some. If you are going for a clone then I would go with Columbus since that is what Terrapin uses, but if not perhaps a half ounce of Centennial and Cascade each.

Well, i figure my hop schedule wasn't accurate from the get-go as Terrapin doesn't use Cascade at all so i may as well just dry hop with what i'v got.

Half and Half sounds like a good plan to me.

He's got 4ozs. o' choco... Maybe add 2ozs. of kiln black or experiment with some debitterized/dehusked #3. I have a little fun with this stuff...

Not to hijack but I thought this might contribute to this thread.

I just had the Terrapin IBA last night and compared it to my American Brown Ale (which is heavier on the Chocolate Malt than Special Roast). I have never isolated the taste of Chocolate or Special Roast, but after the comparison I am thinking that the T. Chief IBA is much heavier on the Special Roast than Chocolate Malt. Am I way off base here?

Just tapped this keg and i am pleased with it. I think the malt bill is pretty solid for a none overpowering brown.

The overall taste is not close at all to the real deal and i'm guessing thats because my hop bill isn't remotely correct. But it is still good. I'll make this again.

And Ed i'll bring you some once the keg clears more.

I always hate reviving old threads, but the Terrapin ISBA has become one of my favorite recipes and I have put together a clone and I was hoping to get some feed back. Here is what the Terrapin website says:

IBU’s: 65

O.G.: 15.1

Malt: 2-Row Pale, Dark Munich, Victory, Special Roast, Crystal 65, Crystal 85, Chocolate

Hops: Nugget, Chinook, Centennial, Willamette, Columbus (Dry Hop)

And here is what I came up with, input is greatly appreciated.

I thought my recipe's malt bill tasted very similar to the real thing, but the hops were not correct. I think yours looks pretty good. But for some reason i am thinking they use Nugget toward the end of the boil but i'm not sure why i think that...
