Default Hopslam clone

Ok so bells has everyone by the balls with their seasonal beers that make you want them all them. Anyone attempted making a clone of this bad boy and/or with success? I imagine no matter how you do it will be expensive but sure less expensive then $25 a 6 pack!

If you look around people have attempted recipes, contacted Bells via email, and then tweaked them off of some pretty helpful advice from the brewery. Check one of those out

Here's an extract kit that someone posted on another thread: http://www.austinhomebrew.com/product_info.php?cPath=178_452_43_246&products_id= 11997

I wish, I'm looking for one myself. It is truly a fantastic beer.

There is a good thread already on here about it. My question is how long would something like this take to bottle condition? I have a tripel that needs another 6 months in the bottle and I absolutely couldn't do that again right now

i'd go 30-40 days from brew to bottle. i have a similar big IPA and that's what I do. I've done 3 versions of it and all have tasted awesome at that point.

So it must just depend on the style of beer more than the gravity?
