Default New Northern Brewer catalogue- has a Furious clone!

I have to say first that I LOVE the Northern Brewer catalogues. They have great pictures, talk about the beer recipes and styles, and I save them for reference.

But tonight, I'm paging through the new catalogue and I see this: http://www.northernbrewer.com/docume...leyFurioso.pdf

Now, I realize that this has been on their website since winter- but I never saw it. Or if I did, it was before I tasted Surly's Furious. Furious is my new all-time-favorite beer. It's only available in Minnesota (maybe only the Twin Cities?) but when I tried it for the first time in June I decided I loved it. Fate took me back to the Twin Cities in July, and I stocked up.

Has anyone else made this beer? Can you compare this clone to the original? All I know of this beer is that Omar Ansari (one of the owners of Surley) told me that there are "7 hop varieties" in it. He just smiled and nodded when I said, "Simcoe? Amarillo?"

Stone, Firestone Walker, and Lagunitas all use British yeast for their IPAs. Seems to work for them =D...

I absolutely love the fact that they make their recipes available!

http://www.northernbrewer.com/default/docs/

I wish other online BHS stores would do the same (especially AHS). I understand that it may hurt their business in the end, but a boy can dream...can't he?

On the contrary, I would never buy a recipe unless I could see the ingredients first.

I hope I'm not pointing out the obvious.............

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/furious-clone-148291/

Nice thread with multiple revised recipies, some "expert" opinions and a link to the byo clone recipe (which looks a little suspect).

There is also a Midwest Supplies clone recipe (ferocious) out as well. I have never had the original, but have loved both of my versions of the clones I have brewed. mmmmmm.........

While non-traditional perhaps given the use of American hops, is it bad to use British yeasts for an IPA?

Also, IPA = a British style.

I will be trying a clone brewed by a friend (Sourmash) this Sunday. He said it was awesome going into the bottles so I am hoping it rocks socks. I don't know what recipe he used, I'll find out this weekend and report back.

I have just bought bulk hops, so without seeing the recipe and having the ability to remove any hops I will have to stick to BMW.
