Brplatz, that thing looks perfect! I just drank my last can of Abrasive and am giddy to give the clone another run as my first attempt fermented too hot and I got some crazy off flavors. Can you please detail your brew? Grain bill, hops, volumes, yeast, temps for fermentation, sparging, etc? I would greatly appreciate ! Nice work!

Mash Profile

Mash Name: Single Infusion, Medium Body, Batch Sparge Total Grain Weight: 14 lbs 6.4 oz
Sparge Water: 3.20 gal Grain Temperature: 72.0 F
Sparge Temperature: 168.0 F Tun Temperature: 72.0 F
Adjust Temp for Equipment: TRUE Mash PH: 5.20

Name Description Step Temperature Step Time
Mash In Add 17.42 qt of water at 162.6 F 148.5 F 60 min
Sparge Step: Batch sparge with 2 steps (0.23gal, 2.98gal) of 168.0 F water
Mash Notes: Simple single infusion mash for use with most modern well modified grains (about 95% of the time).

I hit everything pretty spot on except efficiency, but that was due to a poor grain crush. Temps were as stated above.

Fermented between 65-68. 2 weeks in primary, then dry hopped for a week. Then bottled.

I ended up pitching a small starter of the WLP007 and a smack pack of Wyeast British cause the starter wasnt ready yet, just to be safe. Make sure to consider that.

EDIT: The last page or two, veganbrewer made some changes to the recipe above, makes sure to make those changes accordingly.

I took Vegan's latest posted version of this and tweaked it a little. I think I'm remembering correct that he said it could stand to be a bit darker, so I subbed C40 instead of C20. I also used Cara-Pils instead of the Malto Dextrin he recommended. I dry hopped with 2oz of Citra and 1oz of Warrior.

I'm calling this batch "Abrasion" (small glass on the left in the photo)..

The color is almost spot on. Abrasion (my homebrew) is just a hair lighter in color. The Aroma is almost exactly the same, but Abrasive has a touch more pine in the nose. The flavor is almost identical, with Abrasive being slightly more dank. The head and mouth feel are a perfect match. I'm usually hard pressed to ever call something a clone, but this is as close as I've ever experienced. I made a few changes to Vegan's recipe, but he definitely gets all the credit for this!

Thanks for sharing Vegan! As far as I'm concerned I have a keg full of Abrasive(ish)!

Looks awesome. Thanks for experimenting with the C40. So did you go with the same % of C40 as I had for C20? I'd like to dial in that color if you said it was a wee bit dark, I can maybe go down a % point on the C40. There are not many notes on warrior's dry hop aroma, I wonder if that is where the pine is? I will be giving this another go soon.

Sorry if my post was confusing, but my version was slightly lighter in color than the real thing. I should say.. I didn't sub out all of the C20. I used 4.6% C20 and 1.5% C40, so a slight bump in C40 should do the trick.

I was wondering the same thing about the Warrior = Pine thing. I also know I need to step-up the dry hop. Maybe double the weight, because the flavor was way more dank in the Abrasive. Possibly even more in the whirlpool addition, as well.

Thanks for sharing! Can you detail your brew process? I asked this earlier for brplatzs brew but think yours may be closest so far. I am most interested in mash time/temp, grain/sugar bill, hop additions, ferm temp, volumes etc. I made this back in October and it didn't turn out as I had hoped. The fermentation got really hot on me (77 degrees at high Krause) and it left a hot nose and flavor that seemed to mask everything else. Thanks in advance!

If you did a 60 minute boil, an extra 30 minutes would also help to slightly darken the color. This way, you wouldn't have to tweak the grist.

Seems like from my calcs plugging in Stauff's numbers, his was around 8.4-8.5 SRM. If it was just a hair dark, could be looking at a 8.2-8.3SRM. Not sure how to calculate 90 min effects on SRM, beersmith doesn't change the figures, but I know it does get darker.
