Default Ska Modus Hoperandi

Does anyone have a recipe for this beer? Or at least the hops that they use to make it?

I chatted with one of the owners, Bill, today. He gave me some ratios for the Modus Hoperandi.

The malt bill is simple:

88% 2-row
7% Caramel 120
5% Red Wheat

OG: 1.068

The hop bill is rather complex.

90 minute hop: Centennial 20% of the total bill.
30 min hop: 2/3 cascade 1/3 centennial 20% of the total bill.
5 min: 1/2 cascade 1/2 Columbus 25% of the total bill
0 min: 2/3 cascade 1/3 Columbus 35% of the total bill
Dry hop: 2/3 cascade 1/3 Columbus "Pretty Heavily"

IBU: 70

I'll be playing around with this in Beersmith for awhile. I hope to give it a try within a couple of weeks.

I love the beer but don't care to spend $9.00-$9.50 a six when store owners don't take care of it.

For a 5 gallon batch. What is the exact breakdown per ounce of hops at those additions? Sounds like I need to make this beer.

I don't know.

Bill gave me these rather detailed instructions. He is allowing me to share this with others. Beyond what I have posted he suggests you work it out on your own. That is what I am planning to do.

After tasting this beer, I would say you would want a total hop bill of around 10-12oz in 5 gallons.

How do store owners not take care of it? We get it in cans out here. It's rather hard to abuse an opaque package. And I can take it about anywhere!

Storing it warm on a shelf instead of in the cooler. Not rotating stock.

I'll have to look for it at the Friar Tucks next time I pass by Savoy, IL. Alot of the liquor stores though keep most beers on the shelf in limited quantities and hope they sell quickly.

Nothing at all wrong with storing it warm, hot wouldn't be good.
