Yes, sorry for the lack of updates. The Manny's clone was good, but not quite like Mannys. I will talk about the 1st batch, which was closest. There is a fruitiness that i think wasn't present in the actual manny's, and it sort of surprised me as I WAY overpitched the batch. Usually this should decrease the amount of esters produced. It was just not as clean as Mannys. I do have to say that I screwed up the mash and when it was too low, I added heat and then way overshot my target. But even with that and 15% crystal, it was not a terribly sweet beer- in this way it tasted about right. Was very nicely balanced, had a great hoppy aroma, BUT, even with so much hops in the 20 minute to 0 minute stages, it had remarkably little hop flavor. The beer was also close to the color, but not quite as dark as Manny's despite my increasing the crystal to 15% over the suggested recipe. It was a very enjoyable brew, but definitely not a clone. I will have to try again after a few other brews. But it has taken me months to get through he 4 kegs (3 of each and one with the leftovers of all three batches mixed together), and I still have the last little bit on tap right now. 18 gallons of beer takes a long time to drink at 1-2 beers per night, especially when it is not the only thing on tap!

I'm reviving this thread. I concocted a recipe using the brewery website as well as a few posts on here to make this:

Manny's Clone
American Pale Ale
Type: All Grain Date: 4/2/2012
Batch Size: 5.00 gal Brewer: Kyle M
Boil Size: 5.72 gal Asst Brewer:
Boil Time: 60 min Equipment: My Equipment
Taste Rating(out of 50): 35.0 Brewhouse Efficiency: 75.00
Taste Notes:

Ingredients
Amount Item Type % or IBU
9.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 87.80 %
0.75 lb Caramel Malt - 40L (Briess) (40.0 SRM) Grain 7.32 %
0.50 lb Carapils (Briess) (1.5 SRM) Grain 4.88 %
0.50 oz Magnum [14.00 %] (60 min) Hops 24.5 IBU
0.25 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (Dry Hop 7 days) Hops -
0.75 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (30 min) Hops 11.1 IBU
0.25 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (15 min) Hops 2.4 IBU
0.50 tsp Amylase Enzyme (Primary 3.0 days) Misc
1.00 items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 min) Misc
1.0 tsp
1 pack Yeast Nutrient (Primary 3.0 days)
Wyeast 1275 – Thames Valley Misc

Est Final Gravity: 1.014 SG Measured Final Gravity: 1.005 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 5.34 % Actual Alcohol by Vol: 0.65 %
Bitterness: 37.9 IBU Calories: 43 cal/pint
Est Color: 7.1 SRM Color:
Color


Mash Profile
Mash Name: My Mash Total Grain Weight: 10.25 lb
Sparge Water: 3.11 gal Grain Temperature: 72.0 F
Sparge Temperature: 168.0 F TunTemperature: 72.0 F
Adjust Temp for Equipment: FALSE Mash PH: 5.4 PH

My Mash
Step Time Name Description Step Temp
60 min Mash Add 15.38 qt of water at 165.1 F 155.0 F

I like using irish moss or whirfloc with the boil. However, this is obviously not going to filter the beer. So it'll still be cloudy. I'll either use the Thames Valley yeast or head down to the brewery and see if I can get a little bit. How much used yeast would you say I'd need to replace a pack of yeast (100 million)?

I don't really know how much is needed to replace 1 pack. I just asked them to fill a growler with yeast and that's exactly what I got. I made sure it was all in solution and just poured "some" into each of my 3 fermentors when I did it. All three of them were making bubbles within about an hour, so I likely added too much. I probably used about a pint of the slurry on each of the fermentors, but this is a guess.

I haven't had time to read this whole thread, but can someone summarize if there was an extract recipe created that accurately clones Manny's? This is a beer that I really enjoy and would love to try my hand at.

mendozer, Did you ever brew this? Has anyone else tried to clone this beer?

We need to get this one close. I'm about to go down there and buy a keg. haha

Bringing this back from the dead. After reading most of these posts and seeing the resulting beers, it seemed like color was always a little on the light side. Most all of the clone recipes use 20L or 40L I know Georgetown doesn't say which Crystal malt they use, and instead of asking which they used, I instead made a guess and asked if I was right. I was right! I also asked about the Magnum/Summit change. Here's the response I got:

Quote:
Hi Jon,

You are correct - we do use C-60 in Manny's.
As far as Magnum goes, we did use it originally. Then there was a time when Magnum was really hard to get, so we switched to Columbus. Columbus wasn't really working though, so we switched again to Summit. When Magnum became more readily available, the brewers decided they preferred Summit to Magnum and it has been Summit ever since.

Good luck with your brew!

Ingrid
I brewed my version of this last month. I don't have access to Summit, so I used Magnum. I believe I came pretty dang close, now I just need to grab a growler of Manny's to do a side by side comparison. I'll post again with some pics once I do that, hopefully next week. Here's the recipe I used. Note: IBUs are off by a little bit, you can adjust hop schedule as necessary to get your recipe to the 38IBUs that Manny's is at.
