If you email boulevard, they will send you a recipe. Yeast is typically english ale yeast, not specified by the brewery. It seems to be fairly clean without significant esters and attenuates well. I would guess WLP007 would fit the bill for this.

Thanks Bacon, just got this from the Brewer at Boulevard, with a couple additions of clarifications I got in further emails:


Hop Bill:

Pale Malt - 62.4%
Wheat - 17.7%
Malted Wheat - 19.9%

Mash Schedule:
Mash in at 116.6f for 6.5 minutes
Step to 122f for 25 minutes
Step to 147.2f for 14 minutes
Step to 163.4f for 15 minutes
Mash out at 168.8f

Pre-boil gravity is 1.051
Post-boil gravity is 1.053

70 minute boil.

Hop additions:

Bravo - 3.3 IBU @ 60m
Zeus - 6.9 IBU @ 60m
Summit - 1.5 IBU @ 60m
Cascade - 4.5 IBU at flame out

Pitch their house english ale strain at 66f. Ferment at 66f until they SG gets down to 1.028, then they move it to 73.4f until it finishes at 1.012.

Dry hop with Cascade and Nelson Sauvin at a rate of .21 kg/bbl and .070 kg/bbl respectively.

I asked about the possibility of harvesting from their bottled beers, but he did say they used a different strain for fermenting than they do conditioning, so harvesting wouldn't get you the proper yeast. He said to take whatever english ale yeast your supplier has, but to avoid anything that leaves a lot of Diacetyl behind.

Going to try and process this information, chop it up into a 5.5 recipe, and give it a shot sometime next month.

Really great of Boulevard to be so open in sharing recipes.

I noticed that the IBUs only go to about 16 which is lower than the 20+ mentioned in the other articles.

I think I will only use Columbus for the bittering hop (Instead of the other three). Also, I just used Red Wheat instead of the Wheat/Malted Wheat combo to simplify things.

Also, I like the dry yeasts so I decided to work with S-04

One more thing to note, that late Cascade addition of 5 oz is likely off. The software I use doesn't take into consideration the number of IBUs imparted by a whirlpool or a hop stand (So I used 1 min addition).

So do your own calculations for that late addition. I was just trying to hit the numbers for the recipe in the software and will likely do more research to get this more accurate.

Sweet, let me know how it turns out. I don't know that I'll have time/room to get anything going until the beginning of February (although while i'm out of town in late january, I'll be partaking in some Lagunitas Sumpin Sumpin, a similar style)

Just brewed this tonight with some modifications.

1. I used two ounces of Cascade at flameout (For a 20 minute hop stand).
2. Got a lower efficiency than expected and ended up with an OG of 1.050 (No big deal).
3. Columbus only as the bittering hop addition.
4. US-05 Yeast
5. With my calculations, the IBU on my beer is approximately 30ish (A little bit more bitter).
6. Set fermenter to 65 degrees F. Plan to keep here for 10 days.
7. After 10 days, I will increase temp to 68 for the last 4.
8. On day 14, cold crash.
9. Day 15, rack to keg and dry-hop in the keg (with 2 ounces cascade and 2 ounces of Nelson Sauvin).

I'll keep you posted on how this turns out.

I might change my dry hops to something a little bit more similar to Blvds. and make it 3 ounces Cascade and 1 ounce NS.

I'm happy to report back that my attempt at this beer is almost perfect. I can say with confidence that this recipe is spot on (even with using S-05). Of course my recipe varied slightly, but it's so damn close that I'm going to make this a regular. The recipe I used is posted earlier.

The only thing I might change is to add a a little bit more of the flameout additions. However, the hop character and flavor is about as close as I could have asked for.

I say go for it if you were waiting on a confirmation from someone who has brewed it.
