Default OK, I'll be the first..."King Henry" Clone:

If anyone has had this amazing beer and discovered that they immediately retired it, you know why a proper clone is absolutely necessary.

Just working off info from Goose's website, random interviews of brewers and techniques they've used in other English style and Imperial beers. My computer (with beersmith) is in the shop, so I'm just using Hopville. I'll run it through my system later.

_________________________
I know its not exact, but it looks pretty damned close.

I'll probably brew a nice big batch of ESB or English IPA first then rinse the yeast and pitch according to the pitch rate calculator.

What do you all think? Any glaring errors or do you think this could work?

I actually have not brewed this yet. I'm saving the recipe for a major event. When I do get around to it, I will post the results.

I have my BCBS clone bubbling away now, so I will be collecting the oak and some beer from that fermenter and using it in this recipe. I'll keep you posted.

I brewed something very similar to this recipe about 6 months ago. I think it's going to take at least another 6 months before it will mellow out a bit.

I mashed at 149 because I thought the yeast would struggle to attenuate properly but I shouldn't have as I can detect a bit of alcohol heat. I haven't added any oak chips yet but have some soaking in bourbon.

I did a second batch & it turned out better. It's only two months old & it's already very, very smooth.
