It is 1,000x easier to hit your mash temp and throw the pot in a warm oven. Don't bother checking the temp, unless your stove is so poorly built that it can't hold a temp to bake, don't waste your time opening every 15 mins. I did the first few mashes, and I never needed to.

Set the oven to the lowest temp, usually ~175 or so, when it hits that shut if off. You can open the oven and place the mash in, opening the door will drop ~15-20 degrees. That coupled with the thermal mass of a gallon+ of water and all that grain is sufficient to maintain the temp.

I don't know much about cloning this brew. However, I did buy a Sankey keg of this for $60 about 8 months ago!

Wow! Priced out the ingredients today at Midwest and I'm gonna be in for ~$58 (w/ shipping). Another $5 for water...maybe I should just buy it....nah. No fun in that.

Where did you get the recipe, you might double check what you are looking at. That's almost 7 lbs of extract plus enough grain for a PM recipe. I would guess you could cut the extract in half and do a PM with the grains. Anyone else?

LME is usually in 3.3 lb cans, how do you get 4 lbs? I think I have seen 1 lb cans at the store, but its more expensive so it would be silly to buy 4 1lb cans. Not bagging on you, just trying to help, I would be interested in the recipe as well for when it gets cold out.

This is on my radar for my next batch...wanted to search before posting and found this thread.

Have you made this? How did it turn out? I am drinking some of this I just bought at the store, I had this last night as well. I am liking it so much I want to make it.

Anyone?

Also SA puts on its bottle "Winter Brew"...but this is what we are talking about here right?

I just priced this out from my LHBS online minus the Yeast and Ginger Root for $49

I plugged this into Beersmith as a partial mash. I get

OG 1.075
IBU 25.9
SRM 16.1

Also, does 1.5 lb of crystal malt sound like a lot? Might come out too sweet.
