goose island matilda clone
anyone have a good clone of this beer?? have a party that i'm going to in about a month

Don't have a recipe but can tell you: 7%ABV, 32IBU, Styrian/Saaz, 2-Row/Caramel malt. Matilda is fermented with a Belgian strain then refermented with Brett. That last bit of intel (fermentation) means you probably can't brew/serve in a month even if you find a recipe.

If you do a search you'll find a couple threads discussing Matilda but sadly no recipe. Good hunting!

like iluvipa said, that beer will take around 12-18 months to make, and thats IF you can get a recipe. But I would email goose island and start a culture from a bottle for starts.

thanks for the info...

this is what i found.. i think the second is brett (french) and the first is a european white..


Someone, I think Ken, sent a file with a spreadsheet for the Goose Island beers. Based on that info, I worked up a recipe. Here is what I worked up, I did not choose a yeast because it says they use 2 yeasts, so I didn't want to guess at which to suggest.
All the numbers ( IBU's, srm, etc.) are pretty much dead on, the only one I couldn't hit with the grain they say they use, is color.
