Default North Coast Old Stock

I am begging the community on hands and knees.....is there a recipe for this beer out there? i spent all day looking for one, and all there is are sketchy extract clones. I prefer all grain, but if it comes down to extract, whatayagunnado?

I enjoy Old Stock as well. I came up with a recipe that is really close, IMO. I have brewed this 3 times now, tweaking each time and have settled on this recipe. If I changed anything next time I brewed this, I might add a .50lb - 1lb of brown sugar to the boil and wlp007 for yeast.

0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt -120L (120.0 SRM) Grain 2.60%
0.25 lb Special B Malt (180.0 SRM) Grain 1.30 %
2.00 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] (60 min) Hops 22.3 IBU

would you recommend a FWH for this recipe? i want some hop complexity to it, but dont want to sacrifice the emphasis on yeastworks done on the overall impression.

@ Xainq

How long are you letting this beer sit back?

Recipe looks good I will have to try it.

Glad you brought this up. I have considered doing a FWH when I re-brew this in a couple weeks. I'm also looking at dry hopping it this time around. I might be splitting a 6.5gal batch so I can try WLP013 (slurry almost ready from a mild ale) & WLP023.

Short answer, its about 4 to 5 months before I really start drinking it.

I just primary for 6 weeks, cold crash it for an additional week. Then transfer to a keg to force carb and keep it in the chest freezer for a couple of months (trying my best not to drink it). This time around I will bottle fill enough to lay down for a year or so.

Also, after the first couple of weeks in primary I will rouse the fermenter gently, once or twice a week, to ensure the yeasties do their thing getting the final gravity down.

A little necro-posting here... but are there any updates on this recipe? I'm buying all the grains for this one right now to do a double batch. Curious if any is left that anyone has let age, and if so, does it age like the original Old Stock?

Yup screwed this one up somewhat. Went to rack my Pliny clone of of the dry hops and found that my dry hops weren't there.... Found em in my friend's Old Stock Ale Clone right next to it, arrrgggghhhhh. I could care less if it were mine, but my friend was so stoked for this one, damn.
