I tried to do one myself awhile back (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum/sh...ghlight=Monde). It turned nothing like Fin, but still tasted great more like a darker, more flavorful version of Hacker Pschorr. I very loosely based my recipe on the
Blanche De Chambly recipe here: http://byo.com/feature/277.html

clone recipe for Fin du Monde brew
 
I bought a case of Fin du Monde recently and it got me interested in brewing again. I do have a clone recipe for it in one of my books, and I'll dig it out if you are interested after reading this: It uses cane sugar instead of the standard ingredients. It also ends up 9-10% alcohol, which is pretty steep.

If we are talking about the same product, it comes from Canada, and is in 22 oz bottles with a cork and wire stopper, is that the stuff??

I liked it early on, but now it seems too sweet. It's nice to tell my wife I'll only have "one bottle of beer" and at 22 oz and 10% I just don't need anymore! Nice buzz before dinner. . .

What you give up is the fuller flavor of a good ale.

Let me know and I'll get the recipe for you.

Hey Fred, any chance we could get that La Fin du Monde clone recipe? I love that beer, and I would really appreciate a good recipe, as I haven't had any luck finding one on the forum (or anywhere else, for that matter.) Thanks in advance!

I am happy to say I accidentally brewed a beer which is surprisingly close to La Fin. It's a Honey Weizenbock. I've since modified the recipe and I think what follows should be surprisingly close to La Fin... The only caveat I have is that I don't know what to do with the hops. I used Hallertau in my Weizenbock, but that's clearly wrong for the La Fin. Maybe try 2 ounces of Strisselspalt split at 60, 30, 15 and 1? I've never used Stresselspalt though, so that's just a guess...

Fermentables:
2 lbs wildflower honey (added to primary)
8 lbs belgian pils
3 lbs belgian wheat
1 lbs honey malt
0.25 to 1.0 lbs of something "biscuit-like"
0.25 lbs belgian aromatic
0.25 oz bitter orange peel @10

WLP 300 Hefeweizen yeast.
No secondary, let it sit in primary for at least a month



Right now I am drinking my Weizenbock and a La Fin side by side... The only thing I'm missing is the aroma, the cloviness, and my beer is much softer... maybe it needs some brett or something, and definitely a slight biscuit character... And I was fermenting at 77. I think upper-60's will get you even closer to La Fin.

The second recipe isn't too far off from mine, actually....

But they suggest Goldings. I don't think Styrian goldings are right....

Austin home brew has the clone kit here. Check it out and let us know how it turns out.

Of course, they don't tell you what is in the kits, so there's no possibility of tweaking it. Totally useless, IMHO. I won't buy a kit if they won't tell me the recipe.
