Need a Manny's Pale Ale clone
 
Anyone had Manny's Pale Ale ? A friend of mine is from Seattle and wants a clone for this draft only beer from Georgetown brewing.

Thanks in advance.

Just keepin' this alive. Hopefully to see some Seattle eyes.

Seattle (well, Everett anyway) piping in!
 
Sorry, I don't have a recipe, But I did want to say that that Manny's is a damn fine beer. Good luck with the recipe search.

I haven't brewed this but it was a best guess based on the information from the website and countless pints at local pubs. I've found that both Manny and Roger are very open to helping out fellow brewer's whether commercial or homebrewer's so you may want to just give them a call and see if they'll share the recipe with you. Or feel free to take this one to them and see what they think.

EDIT - oops, just noticed your in SLC so going down to the brewery is probably out of the question, I would still encourage you to call.

Perhaps others could chime in with their thoughts/changes to the above recipe.

Good luck

Thanks Brewtopia! My friend gave me that same info, and I pondered whether or not I could create a recipe from it.

I figured I could get an o.g. from the base malt, but I didn't know how much Crystal or Carapils to add. Not to mention, I've never seen the beer, so the Lovibond rating on the crystal would be a guess as well for me.

I'm pretty new to all of this, and just did my first AG batch. I think I should brew this and see how my friend thinks it compares.

I'm guessing the yeast is one of the more major components. How many English Ale yeasts are there? Maybe I should just have my friend call the brewery and ask them.

I know that this is an older post, but Im just getting into All Grain and was attempting to brew Manny's myself. I used "Designing Great Beers" and did the work by hand, but had to make some guesses. I did it based on 8 gallons but I think I did about 85% 2-Row, about 10 % Crystal and about 5% Cara-Pils. My hop bill was basically the same. I was going to go pick up every thing from my LHBS this weekend but can adjust if it sounds like Im doing something wrong.

How did this recipe turn out?

Can anyone convert this to an extract recipe with specialty malt steeping?


I lived in Seattle for 5 years and this was the only pale ale I've ever liked so I would love to make it at home.

Went to LHBS and they helped me put together this recipe. Started it last week - I'll let you know how it turns out. I started with 10 gals of water. Should have used 11-12.

Manny’s (sort of) Recipe – 10gal worth:
14lbs of Pilsner Malt Extract (liquid)
1 lb of Crystal Malted Barley
1 oz Magnum Hops (16.7%)
1 oz Saaz Hops
2 packets of Thames Valley (XL) liquid yeast.

Boil Malt, barley and Magnum for 60min. The Saaz goes in the last 5 min.

The lady at Larry’s (Kent) Brew Shop said not to use Irish Moss on this recipe. It’s cloudy by nature anyway.

Use the same specialty grains but swap out the Pale malt with 5 lbs 6 oz of Light DME. If you're doing a concentrated boil (3 gallons) up the initial Magnum addition to 3/4 oz.

Some further refinement
 
I don't know if anyone is still following this post. I was working up a recipe last night and had a couple of thoughts to add.

The beer is marketed as unfiltered so it should definately be cloudy, no finings. Their instructions are to store kegs upside down to keep the sediment from sticking to the bottom and the distributor has advised at least one bar owner to flip a half full keg to "refresh", resuspending the solids that have settled out.

I remember reading or hearing once that Manny significantly overpitches the yeast, so a big starter is in order.

Also, I am pretty sure it is dry hopped. A new keg has a lot of fresh hop flavor.
