Marc06- I tried to send you a private message, but you are all full up.
Just wanted an update on this beer, and what is the mash schedule, yeast used?

I plan on making this on Sunday, looks really good.
Thanks

Well, this beer came out great. Just not a clone. I have the hop schedule off. Brew Hoperator and NNatic are right...I'm going to email my recipe to Spike and see what happens.

So i finally did a side by side and my recipe is lighter than Terrapin recipe. I'm going to bump up the chocholate next go around. The terrapin is also a bit sweeter, and I'm going to bump up the victory and crystal. As far as the hops, I was waaaay of. I dont have any way of improvement, just starting over. I emailed the brewery as advised in this thread. I have side by side comparison pictures...just lack the ability to upload them.

I haven't done much on my next version of achieving a Terrapin IBA clone, until now! I knew I was off on the grain bill, and never received an email back from Terrapin. Some one with greater google-fu skills than myself was able to find a grain bill that apparently came from Spike himself. With this new information for the grain bill I have updated it, however the hops originally used are different from what is currently used. I have gone with the hops from the Terrapin website. Any critique on my hop schedule? Further thoughts on yeast? Last time I used US05 and was thinking about doing the same, mashed 152.

Estimated OG: 1.062 SG
Estimated Color: 20.7 SRM
