Yeah unfortunately my LHBS didn't have the necessary ingredients for me to try my cloning recipe. So I am going to make EdWort's Bee Cave Haus Pale Ale with my next batch. I thought that would help me get an idea of some of the hops and schedules being that this is my first ever Pale Ale batch. Then I plan to make any adjustments and try the Green Line clone. Perhaps early January I will try it and I will definitely make sure to post the recipe I use and the results.

Mmmm.... Green Line. I need to head out somewhere this weekend and have me a few of those!

I emailed Goose Island; they confirmed a few things:

  • 100% Briess Pale Ale Malt (NOT 2-row, there is a difference Briess Malt & Ingredients Co.: Base Malts) ...and no biscuit/carapils
  • Bittering w/Liberty at 30mins
  • Amarillo armoa addition right before knockout

So, based on their input and the recipes above, they said the recipe below should be a "reasonable facsimilie of Greenline"

10.5# Briess Pale Ale Malt
0.5oz Liberty (30min, 6 IBU)
0.5oz Simcoe (15min, 12 IBU)
0.5oz Columbus (10min, 9 IBU)
1.0oz Amarillo (0min, 1 IBU)
5.0% ABV w/75% effciency & attenuation
~30 IBU

I hope to brew it in the next few weeks and will let you know if its any good.

Cheers.

Great! If they bitter at 30 minutes, that makes me think they do a significant whirlpool. I'd guess 30 minutes or so, which is common on a commercial system. I still think they dry hop it based on my attempt, but I'm really curious on how this recipe turns out. The simplest recipes can be the toughest to clone sometimes.

Thanks for getting that info from Goose Island. The recipe looks really good. Let us know how it turns out and if you would make any further changes for the next batch. I'm brewing EdWort's Pale Ale tomorrow so I will probably hold off until March or so to do the Green Line clone.

Can't wait to hear the results!

Subscribing. I'm interested in seeing how this turns out.

Alright guys, I took a crack at this, sort of. I had a ton of Briess 2-row around and no Pale Ale Malt, so I went with the cost-effective option and used what I already had. The Pale Ale malt is what makes this beer, so I realize I made something totally different by subbing it, but the price was right. I compensated somewhat by adding a 1/2# biscuit and 1/2# caravienne. I followed the same hop schedule.

Primaried for 2 weeks in low 60s using washed WLP008 (again, this is what I had around, the price was right). Primed to 2.5vol CO2 and bottled on Thursday. 1.058 OG, 1.012 FG and ~25 IBU.

Hydro samples tasted awesome. Definitely miss the pale ale base malt, but still delicious malt backbone. Remember the yellow/orange crayon? About that color. And the hops - wow. Loaded with hop flavor & aroma - much more than the actual greenline, but very tasty nonetheless. Just enough bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. Very excited to try this conditioned in a few weeks. Good recipe. Next time I'll definitely use the pale ale malt though.

Will be brewing this on Sunday. Got all the ingredients though it was tough to locate some Simcoe hops. But found some leaf at LHBS.

I just stocked up on some simcoe from northern brewer. 1oz bags but still, they had some. Bought enough to keep me in good shape until harvest...I hope. I am anxious to hear how this recipe turns out, please keep us posted.

Awesome! Which LHBS do you go to? I've been to a few around the area and they've been hit or miss

Brewer's Coop (@Two Brothers Brewery) is by far the cheapest, but very poorly & sporadically stocked. But they sell "expired" white labs yeast for $3 each.

Chicagoland Winemakers in Elmhurst is OK, but pricey for equipment and ok selection for basic malts & hops.

HomeBrewShop in St. Charles is they most well-stocked by far, with decent prices for grain & equipment. $2/oz for hops and $8.50 for yeast though.

Haven't been to the Fox Valley one yet...it's pretty far from Wheaton.
Same with the various Brew & Grows, but I've heard great things about them.

The one in Roselle is excellent. Their grain turnover could be better, but they've got a good hardware selection, and their yeast are always within the expiration date (and if not they'll give it to you for free. They gave me a free pacmam because it was old.)
