I'm going to give this one a run soon. I've listened to all 4 BN podcasts and feel that going with the "rebrew" version is my best bet. Interesting to watch Tasty and Jamil disagree on the recipe. Tasty seems to favor the Crystal 150 while Jamil thinks all Special B is the answer. I have no idea who is right, but I think I'm going to go with about 2/3 Special B and 1/3 C150 just to hedge my bets. (For Crystal 150 I'm going to use Simpsons Extra Dark (160L) Which is the closest that Northern Brewer seems to have. This only gives me an SRM of 18 which might be a little light. Looks like 22 would be closer.
An suggestions before I commit?
PS: I'm going to do it as a BIAB with a dunk sparge.
PSS: If anybody knows how to enter a dunk sparge into Beersmith let me know!
