Just took gravity after a week and this beer is amazing already. Very similiar to the real thing.

Mine is high at 1.020 right now but I'm sure it will drop a few more points with time. Usually I'm always high after only one week.

Nice! Let us know how it is once it's carbed up.

Owner of Brewer's Connection put together a 2 gallon recipe for me for my Mr Brew (2nd batch ever BTW) as my wifey turned me on to this ale (yes, she is good for something). Partial mash Recipe as follows:
1/2 lb. breiss 6-row
1/4 lb cara-munich 45-55l
1/4 lb german cara-pils
.13 simpsons peated malt 2-3l
1 lb briess amber DME
1 lb Muntons light DME
1 packet Danstar windsor ale yeast 11g
1 packet UK fuggles hop pellets 1 oz

boiled to instructions and opened a bottle 2 days ago, pretty spot on...only thing we noticed was a high amt of carbonation, could have been due to pouring the cold ale into a room temp beer stein ( I should have chilled it first obviously)

I am going to do a 5 gallon Kiltlifter clone tomorrow same recipe just 2.5 times the main ingredients. I haven't graduated to all-grain yet as I am only on batch 6 and still learning my way.

Any special advice, send it my way. I am having way too much fun with homebrewing, per my wifey! TIA

@Scottland:

I am trying to perfect this recipe using a partial mash and I just used SA-04 as well. Someone else had told me to try SA-05 next time...any opinions on that? 1st batch I did a 2 gallon Mr Beer recipe from Brewers Connection using windsor yeast...tasted pretty spot on, slightly over-carbed yet, drank 2 liters so far and sitting on others in the fridge for another week or 2, not sure if carb will subside tho.

Just did a 5 gallon batch using the SA-04 from BYOB in Gilbert, Fuggle hops, 6-row barley malt, 1/4 lb of smoked peat and other grains and malt extracts. Hope I am getting closer and closer to KL clone cuz it's SWEEEEEEEEETTTT.

Salud

You're in the right ballpark, but you've got a few things to tweak.

S04 will be closer than S05. Four Peaks uses a fairly clean english strain
4oz of smoked peated malt is way too much. I'd use like 1oz
If you want a good extract recipe, i'd do:

Steep:
1lb Crystal 80
2oz Roasted Barley
1oz Peat Smoked Malt
(no carapils)
Then:
6lbs DME or 8lbs LME (light)
1.5oz East Kent Golding @60min
Ferment with S04 or WLP007 or WLP005 in the mid 60* range.

Well it's done and fantastic. I used marris otter as the base malt which I love the toasty quality it provides. Very good beer, finished a little high on FG but all in all will definitely brew again.

I think I'm going to brew this up tomorrow. I'm doing a BIAB full volume mash with 8 gallons of water. Anyone mess with water the profile. I figure something straight forward: about 1.75 tsp cal chl and .5 tsp gypsum. Thanks for the recipe!

I brewed this up the other day. I used 90L crystal instead of 80L because thats all the brew store had. I used .5 oz roast (695) and .5 oz choclate(395) instead of the 2 oz of roast @ 300L. So it definitely looked a little darker. But its looking good. Can't wait.
