moose drool/magic hat clones
Has anyone brewed either of these clones from anywhere? Just brewed my first batch, already looking to the second. If anyone has brewed either of these or has a worthwhile recipe please speak up. Cheers.

I've been brewing Northern Brewers Caribou Slobber extract kit for years. Very good. Similar to RICO's recipe. I think I will try his recipe for comparison since I still have 10 gallons of Slobber bottled. Should say this is a Moose Drool clone.

You can get a Moose Drool Clone kit from Northern Brewer called Caribou Slobber. I brewed the AG version of it a while back. It turned out pretty well. My only recollection of it was that it needed to age a little. It's kind of sweet early on.

The caribou slobber kit is very good early on and gets better with age.

I got my goodies from ritebrew.com and have never drank moose drool or it's clone but it looks and sounds good so why not.

I used nbs moose drool ag recipe as a nice american brown ale base. Secondaried on 1.5 lb of toasted coconut. Similar to konas coconut brown. Great beer.

I brewed caribou slobber and it is a great beer, I just would like it to have more body. would adding 1/2 pound of flaked oats do it any good? BTW I brewed the extract recipe, I don't have a kettle large enough for the AG recipe yet.

I've brewed the Slobber, the one gallon extract, and loved it. I want to see if I can get the same results with the all grain version.
