Thanks zeg. As you suggested, as I don't taste any off flavors, I will just cold crash at between 40 and 45 for 7-10 days. Thanks again.

I kegged this about 2 weeks ago. And it is finally starting to taste like DGA. Great recipe. Another winner from Yooper.

Agree. Just follow the recipe exactly and you'll get great results. I've tried it with hop substitutions and different yeasts. Pacman is a must if you want DG, period

For a DG clone, you're probably right. But I have to say, as I posted upthread, I brewed "this" using Vienna malt, subbing out the hops, and using WLP007.... after a somewhat extended bottle conditioning, it's finally hit its prime and it is fantastic. It's not DG, but it's certainly similar (and good).

So, clone or not, I think the recipe proporitons here are a winner.

Well yeah. But this is a DG clone recipe and I in no way meant imply that variations won't make great beer. But people looking here are undoubtedly looking for a clone, not a cousin...

This is next in line for brewing, but since I buy hops 1oz at a time, I was wondering if I used some of the Saaz as bittering hops and reduce the perle, if it would be ok? I am ok with a overall slightly lower IBU.

boil 60 min 0.500 Perle ~ pellet
boil 60 min 0.500 Saaz ~ pellet
boil 30 min 0.250 Perle ~ pellet
boil 5 min 0.250 Perle ~ pellet
boil 5 min 0.250 Saaz ~ pellet

I picked up the ingredients for this the other day, Along with a 6 pack of dead guy. I found I don't like it. So I added some cascade and centennial with a little simcoe to the boil.

I put a slight spin on this to ferment on Sunday and it's still going strong! In fact it's bubbling into my airlock and out the side of a 6.5 gallon bucket... Yikes!

But it smells great so I'll clean it up and keep an eye out. This was my first time using liquid yeast with a built in starter so that's what I'm blaming haha.
