Final Gravity: 1.016
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60

15 Min. - 1/2 oz. Hersbrucker (1.65 AAU, 1.63 IBU)
05 Min. - 1/4 oz. Willamette (0.95 AAU, 0.38 IBU)
Yeast: Wyeast Fat Tire Yeast
Priming Sugar: 4.5 oz. corn sugar/glucose
IBUs: 12.46???? --- 28????
OG: 1.054
FG: 1.016

Day 0:
- This was a partial boil of 2.5 gal. and 2.75 gal. top up water.
- Steeped all specialty grains in a muslin bag at 155° F. for 15 min.
- Raised temp to boiling and added extract.
- Added hops according to above schedule.
- Chilled in ice bath to 78° F. in about 20 Min.
- Added to primary fermenter and toped up to 5.25 gal. (with boiled and chilled water)
- Stirred vigorously to mix and aerate wort for 3 min.
- Took O.G. reading
- Pitched yeast
- Stirred vigorously 1 Min.

Day 11:
-Measured F.G. of 1.016.
-Racked to glass carboy.

Day 25:
-Boiled priming sugar in 2 cups water for 10 min.
-Added priming sugar/water to bottling bucket
-Racked cider from carboy to bottling bucket, pausing occasionally to gently stir cider and priming sugar.
-Bottled in 5- - 12 oz. bottles.

Day 53:
-Put one bottle in fridge two days ago, and tried it today.
-It had a slight poof when opened, but is flat.
-It's overly sweet, with an overly bitter finish.

Day 64:
-Chilled 1 bottle in freezer for 15 min. and opened it.
-It's finally cabbed, but still too sweet/malty. The bitterness is probably in the correct range now.

Default Sweet!


Thanks for the recipe. It's SWMBO's favorite and I've been meaning to look for the clone. How she will worship the ground I walk on! Gratsi!

I have a similar recipie in the bottles waiting now. I did not use hersbrucker but used the other two.

I used a dry yeast and it sat in the primary for 3 weeks than to bottles. About 2 more weeks and I can tell you how it came out.

Well I brewed and served my clone (from BYO) next to a glass that was poured from a bottle of New Belgium's Fat Tire, and my 2 tasters could not pick out which was which, they guessed my homebrew was the commercial beer. NIIIICCCCEEEEE

Sorry for Zombifying this thread, but I had a question about the above recipe. I'm having a hard time understanding the boil instructions. It says to "Remove grains and add dried malt extract. Bring to boil and add 0.66 oz. Willamette pellet hops. Boil for 60 minutes and add Irish moss. Boil 10 minutes and then add 0.50 oz. Fuggle hops. Boil another 20 minutes, add remaining Fuggles and remove from heat. Cool to about 70° F and transfer..." Does this mean the DME is added before the boil actually gets going? Also, according to this recipe, the boil goes a full hour after the first hops and irish moss addition before the next hops additions... am I reading this correctly? I'm just getting started in the hobby, and I'm so locked into the traditional "1 hour boil" schedule that any departure sets off alarms in my dimly lit head. Thanks for the help!
