After an attempt or two at making a Goose Island IPA clone, I think I finally nailed it. This is a partial mash recipe that could easily be converted into either an all-extract or all-grain recipe.

Partial Mash, conducted in a 5-gallon round Rubbermaid cooler fitted with a Worthog:

2# Pale Malt
1# Crystal 20
0.5# Dextrin Malt

Strike Temperature: 166°, Mash Temperature: 154° for 60 minutes in 1.25 gallons of water and batch-sparged (using the slowly pour over the mash with a coffee cup method) with 2 gallons of water heated to 180° initially.

While collecting the runnings, I had in the pot for FWH:

12.5 AAU Centennial Pellets (1.25 oz of 10.0% alphas) and
1 Tablespoon Gypsum (I use local high-carbonate tap-water).

Brought it to volume (I boil 3 gallons total in a 4 gallon pot) and then brought it to a boil. After a rigorous 45 minute boil, I removed the pot from the burner and did a late-extract addition of:

7# Light LME

Once dissolved, this went back on the heat, was brought back to a boil, and the timer was set for an additional 20 minutes. Further additions were:

7/8 oz Fuggle pellets (4.4%) + 1/8 oz Centennial pellets (10%) @ 15 minutes left.
1 tsp Irish Moss @ 15 minutes left.
1 oz Cascade pellets (5.2%) @ 2 minutes left. (I meant to dry-hop, but forgot to--been kinda busy--but the aroma hasn't suffered too much from the original).

When done and cool, it was racked to the carboy, brought to volume, and I pitched:

Wyeast 1968.

(Well, I pitched an weeks-old batch of recycled 1028 from an earlier beer; after that didn't take off in 24 hours, I panicked and pitched a large pickle-jar full of 1968 sludege that I'd recycled from an ESB that had been racked to secondary one day prior! It took off within a couple of hours.)

This IPA spent one week in primary and a month in secondary before bottling.

OG: 1.062
FG: 1.011

It's goooooooood... and I think a dead-ringer for the "real" thing, although we haven't had a chance to do a side-by-side comparison yet. (I usually employ my wife to do a blind taste test that I set up--this weekend, perhaps.) But I know my Goose Island IPA (the commercial beer I buy more than any other), and I'm pretty confident!

Please let me know what you think, or give it a shot and a tweak and send the revamped recipe back this way!

Summer Homebrew #2 - Goose Island Red Felt Clone - Black Geese IPA
Goose Island released Red Felt as part of a series of Brewpub beers. When I learned there would be no more bottlings of Red Felt, I decided to attempt it myself, since the good people at Goose Island posted the ingredients online. I overused the chocolate malt and turned this reddish beer a red-hued black, pushing the color into the porter range. With all the hops used, a light body, and a bitter finish, this seems safe in the new Black IPA category. Besides the slightly darker than intended color, this beer turned out great. Great spicy and citrus hop profile floating above a bitter dark chocolate. Ends with an almost orange bitterness on the tongue, with a hint of the chocolate lingering as well.

.5 lb roast barley
.5lb Chocolate malt

+2 on aging Matilda. I am a big fan and will typically age it another six months after purchase. It is somewhat ho-hum fresh from the brewery.

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.
