I talked in length with Bob about trying to clone this. I guess Three Floyds is pretty protective about their recipes. I've never had it, but from some people that have, it sounds like it has some wheat in it, with an IPA hopping schedule. You could just attempt to clone it based on what it tastes like, and then tweak. It may take several batches to get close. I'd be willing to help you out in this venture.

Let me know.

This thread has a good 'loosely inspired' clone, but I'm gonna try this recipe too.

heres our recipe - its pretty right on:
5lbs wheat malt
4lbs pale malt 6row
3lbs pale malt 2row
2lbs vienna malt
1.5lbs carapils
10grams amarillo 60mins
14grams amarillo 30mins
7grams amarillo 15mins
7grams amarillo 5mins
1oz dryhop for 3-5 days. serve at 12psi. 27.6IBUS OG 1.058 FG 1.017

amarillo hops are leaf hops with alpha of 10.4% and beta of 6.2%. use london esb 1968 yeast (FFF's house yeast). this beer turns out so close we have just stopped buying gumballhead and only brewing it instead. the color is just slightly darker but the taste is right on.

I just brewed this up a few weeks ago... Almost spot on... I am still waiting for the dry hop addition until I taste it again but the samples were awesome...

Here is the recipe that I used:

All Grain Recipe - Gumball Head Wheat ::: 1.052/1.012 (6 Gal)
Grain Bill (70% Efficiency assumed)
6 lbs. - Wheat Malt
5 lbs. - 2-Row Pale Malt
1 lb. - Caravienne Malt

Hop Schedule (27 IBU)
1/4 oz. - Amarillo - First Wort Hop
1/4 oz. - Amarillo - 60 min.
1/2 oz. - Amarillo - 15 min.
1.25 oz. - Amarillo - 5 min.
1 oz. - Amarillo - 1 min.
1.5 oz. - Amarillo - Dry Hop

Yeast
Wyeast 1056 - American Ale - 1800 ml starter

Mash/Sparge/Boil
Mash at 153° for 60 min.
Sparge as usual
Cool and ferment at 68° to 70°

Notes
Wait til fermentation is finished and then add dry-hop additions for 7-10 days.
Rack and bottle or keg as normal.

My version is almost the same as the rest, we increased the FWH. All hops were whole leaf.

6 lbs Wheat Malt
5 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US
1 lbs Caravienne Malt
0.50 oz Amarillo - First Wort
0.25 oz Amarillo - Boil 60.0 min
0.50 oz Amarillo - Boil 15.0 min
1.25 oz Amarillo - Boil 5.0 min
1.00 oz Amarillo - Boil 1.0 min
1.0 pkg California Ale (White Labs #WLP001)
1.50 oz Amarillo - Dry Hop - 7 days

Mashed at 152F for 60 minutes


So far everyone loves it and say it's very close to gumballhead. It also turned out to be a very clear beer. We plan on brewing another 10 gallons of this before the summers end.

Try an english yeast. FFF's house yeast is English, not American.
