Default Lakefront IPA recipe anyone???

I have not been able to find this recipe anywhere from Milwaukee's best microbrewery. It is my favorite IPA by far and cannot find any recipe clone of this. Please post one if anyone has seen or made this clone from Lakefront Brewery.

Their site says "American Cascade and Chinook hops dominate the aroma... Alcohol by volume - 6.9%." Not a bad start. You can take another IPA recipe and use the two hops mentioned. You can also try email the brewery to see if they'll give you any other hints. Good luck.

Mash Water: 33 bbls. Sparge water: 28 bbls.
2800 lbs. 2-row pale malt
165 lbs. Caramel malt @ 20°L
110 lbs. Caramel malt @ 45°L
3788g Columbus hops at boil
5785g Cascade hops at 1:25
6105g Cascade at end of boil 1:30
6000g Cascade dry hop
6000g Chinook dry hop

what's the batch size then?

33 bbl + 28 bbl = 61, * 31 gal / bbl ? 1891 gal?

Well, that should be what? 1100 gallons or so? About 35 barrels?

Hmmm- we can scale that. Thanks for the info!

Yep, that's what I got out of it too. Except I don't think .63 ounce of columbus at 90 is enough to get the IBUs I think it needs. Even .75 ounce is a bit low, but I'd go with that. My hopping is basically the same, but reads:

.75 columbus 90 minutes
1.00 cascade 5 minutes
1.00 cascade flameout

and the same dryhopping.

I wrote it this way, just for simplicity's sake.

I haven't tasted Lakefront, but it sounds yummy, so I'm interested in trying the recipe. This hop schedule only gets me to about 45 IBUs with .75 oz. Columbus (15.5AA) @90 minutes; is that about right for this beer? Just wondering, because it seems a bit lower than I would expect in an IPA.

Yeah, it's lower than I'd expect too. It's a very hoppy beer, but not terribly bitter. On tap, it's probably my favorite beer. Bottled, it's better than average.

I think I'll go with the 45-50 IBUs or so the first time. I rarely get Lakefront IPA, so I don't think it'll be easy for me to say whether it'll be a clone or not, unless I actually get to Milwaukee in the next few months.

I'll make this next week, and see how close it is.

Thanks for the recipe Trevor and Yooper. I have a list of other Lakefront recipes and if things have not changed at the brewery, they add CaCl2 to our moderately hard Lake Michigan water (about 2-3g per 5 gallon final batch size, which is roughly 3/4-1 tsp) and mash at 155F for "all" their beers.
