Default All-Grain - Fat Tire Clone

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP001
Yeast Starter: 1800ml
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5gal
Original Gravity: 1.053
Final Gravity: 1.013
IBU: 26
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 12
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 at 68
Additional Fermentation: none
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 27 at 68
Tasting Notes: Great, a dead ringer for the orginal

5lbs Munich Malt
4.5lb 2-row (Belgian)
16oz Victory
8oz Biscuit
5on Crystal 80L

Single infusion mash at 152 for 90min
Sparge with 170 to get desired pre-boil amount

Northern Brewer .8oz 60min (Leaf) 9.1%
Hallertau .6oz 15min (pellet) 4.3%
Willamette .25oz 5min (leaf) 5.7%

I know this recipe calls for more Victory than most, but I was not getting the bready flavors of with a smaller amount. Also, my secondary timing is a bit goofy. I never racked this beer, I just let is sit the primary for 41days until bottling at 3vols. This by far is the best beer I have ever brewed, i'm already doing a second batch of the same and I'm done tweaking this one. Don't worry if you taste after fermentation stops and it's not so great, it matures in days 15-40 to become something truly special.

I made ftc a few weeks ago. Came out black. Wasn't fat tire but still pretty good. Had chocolate malt in it. I should have realized what that would do. Maybe I'll try this one next.

This looks good.. I love me some Fat Tire. I've done NB's Phat Tyre AG kit twice and loved the recipe. It wasn't dead on but it was very balanced. Every subsequent time I've just used their recipe when I've brewed it.

Btw... Love the Willamete late-add there... I'm going to put this in my brew schedule and see when I can whip it up.

Your recipe is a little off from what new belgium says is in fat tire, and that phat tyre recipe at northern brewer is way off.

Do you know your water profile for Baltimore? I'm guessing Fat Tire uses very soft water (RO most likely). Thanks!

For anyone finding this on google, here's an article that was apparently helped with the blessing of New Belgium: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/byo-...curate-211830/

I went with a recipe from the 'green' board and its pretty darn close. Good beer at any rate! He toasted his own two row, not sure i did it right but it came out fine non the less.
