Sam Adams Boston Lager clone
14 lbs US 2-row
2 lbs Vienna
1 lbs Cara-Pils
1 lbs Cara-Red
8.0 oz Crystal 40

Mash 153F 90 minutes
Mash-out 170F 20 minutes

2.0 oz Hallertauer Mittelfrueh (leaf) 60min
2.0 oz Hallertauer Mittelfrueh (leaf) 15min
2.0 oz Hallertauer Mittelfrueh (leaf) 0min (through a Hop Rocket)

The 2.0oz of H-M in the rocket really bumped up the hop aroma & flavor. It's a touch too much hops for an exact SA clone, but it's soooo delicious.

Clarification on the fermentation time & temps, in this order:

1) 14 days @ 50F
2) 3 days @ 68F (gradual increase)
3) 30 days @ 42F

This sounds and looks delicious. Do you have any recommendations for those of us that won't be using a hop rocket / hopback? I know that Sam Adams is traditionally dry hopped for 14 days.

You could split the last hops between knock-off, and dry hop. I've heard interesting results about dropping the temperature to around 180F before putting the knock-off hops in the kettle.
