Hey guys,
I'm new to the forum, just started brewing and my set-up is pretty compact (and low-tech), but I'm pretty excited about trying the extract version mentioned above. Has anyone had any success with this recipe?
Thanks in advance!

- Johnny

This is actually Jamil's recipe for the clone with my adjustments for using extract and specialty/steeping malts (I also made it a 5-gallon batch as opposed to the 6 gal in the original and rounded some of the measurements). Note: Lagunitas mashes extremely high, creating a very dextrinous wort. I'm using cara-pils to emulate that mash sequence. Anyways, here it goes...

Lagunitas IPA Clone (Extract Version)

Light/Golden DME 6#

Cara-Pils Dextrin 1#
Crystal 10° 1#
Munich Malt (10L) .75#
Wheat Malt .75#
Crystal 60° .50#

.25 oz Horizon 12% @ 60 mins
.10 oz Summit 18.5% @ 60 mins

.75 oz Williamette 4.75% @ 30 mins
.50 oz Centennial 10% @ 30 mins

1 oz Cascade 5.75% @ 1 min

.75 oz Cascade 5.75% @ Dry
.75 oz Centennial 10% @ Dry

Wyeast 1968 London ESB or White Labs 002 English Ale @ 66° F and raise to 68-70°

This should give you a beer around 1.060 - 1.065 with ~45 IBU's (although I would use a late extract addition to achieve this)

Hope it helps brother! Let me know how it turns out if you brew it!
This is a pretty old thread, but I thought I would give it a try. What was your boil size? Do you recommend steeping for 30 min, or longer due to the munich and wheat malts? Thanks for any input.

I think I am going to try this recipe this next week. If anything it looks like a great IPA recipe. I need to get my pipeline going. Kegs are running dry and nothing is in primary. Big no no haha

Default BYO Recipe

I am looking at doing the extract recipe from BYO (Pasted below). Its similar to the recipe posted at the top of this thread. However, the hops seem to be lacking. The IBUs for the recipe is 67, but when I plug it into Hopville or Brewtarget the IBUs are in the low 50s. Could there be a typo in the recipe? Or, better to trust the recipe over the calculations?

Lagunitas IPA clone
(Lagunitas Brewing)
(5 gallons/19 L, all-grain)
OG = 1.059 FG = 1.015
IBU = 67 SRM = 9 ABV = 5.7%

11.33 lbs. (5.1 kg) 2-row pale malt
0.4 lbs. (0.18 kg) dextrine malt
0.3 lbs. (0.14 kg) crystal malt (60 °L)
0.2 lbs. (91 g) light Munich malt (4 °L)
8.25 AAU Horizon hops (60 mins)
(0.75 oz./21 g of 11% alpha acids)
4.5 AAU Cascades hops (30 mins)
(0.90 oz./26 g of 5.0% alpha acids)
1.25 AAU Willamette hops (30 mins)
(0.25 oz./7.1 g of 5.0% alpha acids)
15.75 AAU Cascade hops (0 min)
(3.15 oz./89 g of 5.0% alpha acids)
Wyeast 1056 (American Ale) or White
Labs WLP001 (California Ale) yeast

Step by Step
Mash at 154 °F (68 °C). Boil for 90 minutes, adding hops as indicated in the ingredient list. After the boil, let the wort sit for 15 minutes before cooling. Ferment at 70 °F (21 °C).

Extract option:
Replace pale malt with 5 lbs. 9 oz. (2.5 kg) of light dried malt extract and 1.0 lb. (0.45 kg) 2-row pale malt. Steep crushed pale malt and other malts in 76 oz. (2.2 L) of water at 154 °F (68 °C) for 45 minutes.

Hi Grizzly, Can't wait to try this, I'm going to make it my next batch. Are those hops all pelletized?
