No doubt, it'll be at 1.010 after 8-10 days. This is my 3rd Conan batch, 2nd HT clone, and I've got 85% attenuation on all 3.

What was this recipe?

Fairly pleased with fermentation this time around. Tasting is much closer to the bitterness I expected and was lacking in the first attempt. It creeps up at the end just like I remember Heady. I attribute this to a little more hopshot and a 10 degree hotter whirlpool. Flavor getting closer, more of a fruit juice this time around, I guess something like Orange, Pineapple, Apricot and a little pine. I will alter my dry hop to get some more pine in there I think, it's pretty fruity now. Final product up to the dry hop though, so far so good.

Yeast has not dropped at all, bottom of the carboy is clear, the entire mixture looks like a pair of khakis.

See, this is the kind of crap that really pisses me off. I've read ever single page of this, for months. Been subscribed to it. And everyday, I read the freaking updates.
Now all I asked was how his variation 2 was different than variation 1. But if you are going to jump on me , then EXCUSE ME!




This has been a great thread that I follow intently and very much look forward to brewing in the very near future.
If I missed how you changed the 2nd brew, I'll go back and look.
Thanks for all the POSITIVE contributions to this thread.

Simmer down cheese, Nord was just messing around. I remember when I got on here I was like "where the hell is the recipe assknuckles?" and they were like "We don't have one yet moron" and it's been all good since then. Nobody meant any offense, it's Friday night, lets all just celebrate by drinking whatever awesome beer we can get , even if it isn't Heady.

Reeeeeally? Wow, and that was the edited for language version. Sorry to get your undies all in a knot, man, but....

Yeah, this guy said it about right. I have a sense of humor, it comes out sometimes, uncontrollably. Admittedly not always the clearest to see in type, but really, wow, I never meant to make anyone hate HBT.


Oh yeah, I'm finally getting around to brewing mine tomorrow. I'd planned on last weekend, but I had a horrible cold and didn't wanna f my yeast in the a with viruses. Going roughly 90% pearl, 5% carapils, 5% corn sugar (I know, BeerSmith made me do it ). Hop Shot to ~60 IBU, 6 hops at 5min, 6 at knockout/whirlpool ~15 mins, then into my HLT with leaf hops until it hits ~175F. (I need a Hop Rocket *CoughDangerRossCough*) Probably gonna do the two keg deal to dry hop, sounds like fun.

Yea....I think 90 pearl, 5 cara, and 5 something else(sugar,honey malt,melanoidin) and hop shot to bitter seem to be the consensus. It's the hops that are the biggest mystery.

Question....and I know it's almost sacrilege.....but has anyone let a can of Heady sit for a few weeks and carefully pour it like you would with a bottle conditioned beer? If so, is it clearer than a fresh can, or is it still very cloudy? I'm just wondering if the cloudiness is chill haze. It may be that Heady doesn't chill the wort all that fast in order to let the whirlpool hops steep longer in warm wort. It could also explain the proteins that seem to be in there also. I know they keep it cold in the bright tanks, I just wonder how long they take to get the temp down.

Just throwing it out there.

This has been a fascinating thread to follow, thanks to all involved! I've only had one can of Heady, and it was marvelous. I would gladly pay for a Vial of Conan if anyone has any extra hanging around

I'm good. Next round is on me.
I guess I failed to find the humor.

If I may ask my question, and if this has already been asked or stated, then I will be glad to apologize:

Vegan: I saw where you intended to change up your second batch and add amarillo (see post 600). I also made note of your blog where you mentioned that you would be changing your hop additions: (http://www.signpostbrewing.com/heady...-clone-tasting).

Bittering: Hop Extract 60 IBUs
5 minute addition: Simcoe/Centennial/Columbus/Amarillo
Whirlpool: Simcoe/Centennial/Columbus/Cascade/Chinook/Amarillo
Dry Hop 1: 4 ounces of a combination of Simcoe/Centennial/Columbus/Cascade/Chinook/Amarillo
Dry Hop 2: 2 ounces of a combination of Simcoe/Centennial/Columbus/Cascade/Chinook/Amarillo run in something similar to a hopback.

Now, if I may, would you mind sharing your recipe for this batch?

Heady is still cloudy after a few weeks. After a few months, it's crystal clear (and tastes like a Belgian IPA).
