You take a boy golden monkey and a girl golden monkey, and you put them in a room together with a water bed. Candles, soft music, disco ball, and a white jump suit.....

I have no experience with a GM clone, but just came across the page discussing in Brew Like a Monk last night. It doesn't give the exact recipe, but says the ingredients are: German Pilsner, Sucrose, Coriander, Tettnang, Saaz, and a proprietary yeast strain acquired from Belgium. Primary is 5-6 days at 68-70, then temp is slowly lowered to 30 for 2-5 weeks. OG =1.085, IBU = 28-30.

My Daughter and Son in law buy a keg once a year. I brewed this version and they agree that it's delicious and is a very good clone, perhaps better than the original.

I'm hoping I didn't push mine too far and it goes dry... I added 1.5 pound sugar and <1 pound honey. OG was 1.10. Still in the basement after 2 weeks, be pulling it around 5 and checking.
