Awesome work here poptarts! This is one of my favorite DIPA's and would love to make a clone of this. Good luck in your experiments!

Thanks, Im hoping i can get it cloned, I love this beer. I have like 100lbs of grain and 6lbs of hops set aside for this experiment so I think i should be able to get close making 2 gallon batches. Thanks like a solid 10 tries.

its at 1.020 bottles last night, turns out bottling 2 gallon batches is the same amount of time and work as 5 gallon so that was fun. tasted like a bitter mess so we will see if it tastes any better once its carbonated.

Okay did some side by side last night with the real deal. It is not cloned .

The good
Color was super close as was head retention.

The not so good
Mine tasted a lot more like honey, I blame honey malt as it makes sense in my book.
The real Myrcenary smells way more dank / earthy / spicy as where mine smells like centennial / cascade.
Mine had a sweet taste to it kind of fruity, real one is a piney monster of delish.

So I shifted pilsner and MO to be equal, cut honey malt in half, upped the total hops, split the dry hop into to stages and am leaning heavy handed toward Chinook and bravo and less on centennial and cascade. Despite all the negative, I'm defiantly on the right path. I'm going to try to re culture yeast from the bottle again via petri dish so this batch I will be using 1056. As far as I can tell the yeast doesn't have much impact on this recipe and my expected attenuation with 1056 seems to line up properly with target FG. Last batch hit 1020 and I want more like 1018 I believe.

I will brewing v0.2 tomorrow http://files.samfoust.com/uploads/myrcenaryv2.html

Brewday went pretty well, no major issues, hit 1090OG and its fermenting away.

Edit: Second whirlpool happened at 140 not 165 as recipe states.

FG 1016, crashing for 24 hrs before starting the dry hop. Taste appeared to have a lot more hop flavor and more so in the Myrcenary direction over the previous batch. Sweetness was dialed down too, defiantly more pleased so far over the previous batch.

For sure, should have another side by side tasting comparison on the 12/13 give or take. Should know a bit more on where to go form there.
