You can get everything from BMW. That's where I bought my ingredients for this one.

More specifically:

Briess 2-Row Brewer's Malt
Briess 2 Row Caramel 40
Simpsons CaraMalt
Briess Organic Munich 10
Crisp Pale Chocolate Malt

Old thread but thanks for this write-up. I'll be brewing this over the weekend. I'll be taking pictures so hopefully I'll remember to post them.

Wow, just realized that was my first post even though I've been snooping around for a while.

Might be about time for me to brew this one again too. I remember it fondly.

By the way, the original is called Gordon G'Knight now (for anyone using Search).

Yea I was gonna say these "Gordons" definitely are outside of CO. because they had to change the name and recipe earlier this year after being sued by Gordon Biersch (go figure) for using the name "Gordon" (even though it was named after Gordon Knight who died in a heli crash). So now it is G'Knight and not as good in my opinion. If you can find old cans of Gordons before they changed it pick them up!!!

I know I'm resurrecting this thread.

I brewed this today... kinda. I mashed the same recipe, collected 6.5 gallons of first (5.5) and second (1) runnings, but then I collected 2.5 gallons more into a smaller kettle and boiled them simultaneously. After 90 mins and basically mirroring the full boil hops with some smaller additions in the smaller pot, I combined them and cooled them together. This is where I feel like I screwed up. Because the smaller boil was all 2nd running it was lower gravity, obviously, and then combining them I think threw my color off, but hopefully not the final taste.

I shouldn't have done it this way, I was pushing the limit of what I could do in a single batch. I should have just let it go at the big boil. I'm hoping it will still come out alright, even if it's off-style. I was frustrated that I got carried away, but I'm over that and just hoping it's a good beer in the end. I ended up with about 6.75 gallons in the fermenter, at 1.091, by the way.

And that's my story.

Brewed this about 2 months ago. Fantastic!

Made one change to the grain bill.

Added 0.5 lbs Melanoiden.

Mash tun was maxed out.
