Brewed this one up with the following changes:

  • Used pilsner malt instead of pale malt (I had the maris otter, but thought I'd save it)
  • Replaced 60-min Centennial with Magnum
  • Replaced 5-min Mt. Hood with Amarillo
  • Replaced dry hop addition with Amarillo

It was not near cloned. It's tasty tho.

The hop aroma is far too strong, although I minded the AA's. And the flavor hops also kill the sweet honey malt taste and aroma that the commercial beer has.

No doubt that if I had followed the recipe to the letter it would have been closer. But who does that?

Followed the extract recipe. This is one tasty brew. Unfortunately, the original isn't available locally for comparison, but it tastes pretty close to what I remember. I'll definitely be making this one again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

As a side note. Does anyone remember the previews to the movie about the chick that is going to do all the reciepes in julie childs cook book? well I see myself working through biermunchers reciepes. Someone should make that into a movie...keep up the good work

Julia & Julia. Funny, I've had the same thought as I work my way through Jamil's Brewing Classic Styles.

Here are more reviews than you probably want to read.

FWIW, although it was not a clone (the way I made it, anyway), I am just in love with this beer (the way I made it anyway). My first Amarillo beer. Mmmm.

.5 # Cara-pils

Hops

.5 Centennial---60 min

Finally getting to the point of tasting... I made this almost verbatim to the original recipe, except dry-hopped too long (couldn't bottle when I wanted due to roofing our house), for 10 days.

Used S-04 in one carboy, WLP029 in the other. Here's what I found:


WLP029 - Cleaner malt taste with some bitterness - overall good balance. Nice lacing. Minor hop aroma and some hop taste. Chill haze.

S-04 - Definitive fruit taste and the hops more pronounced in taste than WLP029. Some hop aroma. Very close in all aspects to Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale, and closer than WLP029. Chill haze.

Brewed this up over the weekend. I halved the ingredients since I only have equipment for 5.5gal batches. I actually did 10lbs of Maris Otter to try and increase my efficiency.

I also had to use Wyeast American Wheat 1010 since my LHBS was out of the Kolsch. Hope it doesn't make too much difference. Got 69.34% efficiency per BeerSmith, OG 1.050 so i'm close! Using the swamp cooler method on the fermenter this time around too, so we'll see how it turns out.

Good to hear! Mine has been bottled for 1.5-2 weeks. I tested a bottle and it didn't taste at all like it did at bottling time. I'm hoping it gets back to how the samples tasted. Just need to wait it out.
