Stone Brewing - Double Bastard Clone
I've seen some recipes here and there for Arrogant Bastard. Does anyone have a recipe or link for Double Bastard? I'd like to brew this weekend if possible. Extract or PM would be best, as I haven't started AG yet and don't want to screw up something this big on first try.

Been drinking this for 1 month with bottles being 2 months old. Still getting better.
Double Arrogant Bastard
12# light LME
.5# Wheat malt
2# Munich malt
.5# Special B
.5# Belgian Biscuit
.5# Aromatic malt
2-4# of 2-row( depending on how much grain you can mash)
1# Corn sugar
1.5 oz's Magnum 60 Min
1.5 oz's Columbus 20 min
1.5 oz's Centennial 0-5 min
1-2 oz's Dry Hop Centennial
Irish Moss
WLP 001 Cali Ale or Wyeast 1056. KILLER RECIPE. Give it time to ferment out. and use an airlock and blowoff tube with this. roughly 9-10 %Alc. Good luck and have fun. My OG was 1.096

Cool! Thanks for the tips. I've heard that the Double B doesn't have any Special B in it. Any ideas for a replacement?

Also, is this a 5g or 10g batch?
Is everything else but the LME mashed or are there steeping grains involved (again -- i'm a noob)?

THe WLP Cali ale did my big Imperial Pale (1.070 OG) real well, kept bubbling in the secondary after 3 weeks it's still @ 1 ever 10s.

Thanks again!!

You could probably get away with a little crystal 120 or 150 but then again that's adding some more sweetness. This is for 5 gal. Mash all the grain at 153. After you get a good boil add the LME(No burner) Stir well and pour slowly. The Special B adds alot, I wouldn't leave it out but that's up to you. I study STONE's Beers and live for the real thing. Cheers.

Holy crap that is one expensive grain bill. I can't wait to go all grain just because the price of LME is so darn expensive. $13.50 for a 3.3 lb can is crazy.

I may have to hold off just so that I can all grain and afford such a recipe. It looks awesome though. Maybe I'll try cutting down to 2 cans and just being half as arrogant. :)

Or maybe I should just go all grain. What's the conversion of LME or DME to All Grain pound per pound?

Gabe 12-09-2006 04:28 AM

Jezter6 this is a PM recipe, the 12 # is Liquid Extract. Yes it is expensive but you could probably get away with 9 or 10 # of DME. Don't know the exact conversion?

Double Bastard Clone?
Has anyone attempted a Double Bastard clone (or have any ideas as to what the double bastard contains?) A friend and I really like the DB, and want to work something up that comes somewhere close (primarily so we have a steady supply).

EDIT: After embarking on some thorough research, I've determined there are two philosophies for brewing the DB. I've mocked up 2 recipes based on these approaches, which can be found a few posts down. Which one seems better?

Double Bastard

After some serious digging, I've managed to find about 2-3 recipes online that claim to be an approximation of the Double Bastard -- but only one had a brewer that really sounded like he knew what he was talking about. The following is his recipe. I might need to adjust for batch size and efficiency, but whacha think?

EDIT: I posted two recipes a few posts down that jive with my system. In my searches, I've determined there are two philosophies for approaching the Double Bastard. The two separate recipes reflect these two philosophies.
