So what does anyone who has brewed this recipe think of it? My father really loves Fat Tire and we cant get it here in NY so I am going to brew a "clone" (similar enough beer) for him. I just hate when I brew some random persons recipe and it comes out awful. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Looks like it would be close with the munich in there. I haven't seen many clone recipes that call for target or goldings (I assume EKG?), but they all seem to go with NB for bittering.

I haven't tried going with American ale II or California V for the yeast, might give it a little more malt character than straight S-05/1056/001.

I can vouch for the green board recipe, like I said earlier, its pretty close, and toasting the grains is pretty easy and gives it a twist, but I really doubt you will be disappointed with either recipe.

I brewed this recipe in April. I did not stir priming sugar well and got very uneven carb that borderline ruined 35-40 of the bottles. But the ones that were carved properly were awesome. I'm brewing it again as we speak.

There is a very slight subtle taste that is not quite fat tire, but its so close its hard to tell apart. I also mashed a little higher (154) for 60 minutes and the body was just about right.

Fantastic recipe nonetheless

I am going to make this my next brew in 2-weeks (after I brew BM Centennial Blonde tomorrow....for National Homebrew Day).

Putting it in Beersmith now.....hmmmmm

Do you really need a 90 minute mash for this? Seems like 60 min would be fine

This is an interesting recipe. I tried a clone with WLP001 and yeast was really the wrong yeast for that recipe. May experiment with this recipe, but with a Belgian strain. Has anyone changed up the yeast?
