I found Moose Drool in the local store and was surprised how good it was. Bit I'll take a SNPA first

Do you think I could get close to this beer by boing a partial mash recipe?

Getting ready to go all grain is taking a bit longer than expected, and I need to brew

The keggle & immersian chiller are ready to rock, so I need to get something made. I have been doing partial mashes for awhile with my smaller pot, so I can handle this easily as a PM.

I don't have any of the software programs (yet) so any help making the conversion would be appreciated.

Here is the recipe converted from AG with beersmith and original put together from the Jamil and Tasty show where they cloned it. I don't know how much the mash times and volumes will help but this is mainly for the ingredients.

I hope it helps you out.

Couldn't It be converted to extract with steeping the grains? I didn't see any grains that needed to be mashed (except the Great Western American Pale)

I finally got around to brewing this tonight. I got to try out my new boil kettle (converted keg) and bought a 2 gallon cooler to mash in. I'm going to start a thread to detail the brew, and a few new things I tried.

All in all, everything went well. I started out with 7 gallons of water, and just over 6 1/2 went into the boil kettle. I came out right at the 5 gallon mark, but overshot my gravity with an OG of 1.064.

Can't wait to try this beer!

Just pulled my first one from the keg.................





..............................

I am ordering a second batch tomorrow morning, that is for sure.

I'm not sure exactly how close it is, but I will do a side by side comparison next week. I just know that on its own merit, this is one fine brown ale.

I think I might be the only Montanan that seriously dislikes this beer. They do have it in cans now too though.

Although, in the can does not sound good..... Big Sky has certainly outgrown their roots but I still love this beer.
