I was looking for an IPA to brew, I think I'll be brewing this one next week. I remember you telling me good things about Lakefront's IPA so I'll give your clone a whirl. If Bob says it's that good I'll take his word on it.

Yooper, you have done it again. I love the Lakefront IPA. I made the recipe in the original thread using Columbus (and Cali V). It came out OK. I really liked the dry-hops and vowed to make it again. Then I saw this thread and for the second batch I made your version using Chinook, and Wow! Just, wow.

I gotta say, I prefer your version to the original.

Cheers!

I hate to admit, but I prefer this one too! It's probably just because we can drink it fresh as homebrew- we're about 200 miles or more away from the brewery and it's really hard go get here. I probably haven't had a fresh bottled one, and it's been a long time since I've have one fresh at the brewery.

As stated previously, I just made this as my first ag brew. I ended up with a 1.068 gravity, which is a little low, but I'm happy. I also ended up with 5.3 gallons for a 5 gallon batch.Regardless, I'm sure it will be excellent!

It will- I promise! I love the amount of crystal, which is far more than I usually use in IPA! (Most of my IPAs have none). The hops combination is awesome. We really love this beer.

I just picked up a 6 pack of Lakefront IPA last night, and came across this thread today! I live in Milwaukee and the lakefront tour is awesome, you drink a LOT. $7 and you get 5 beers and a lakefront glass.

I will be brewing this in a month, thanks. When you say "Lakefront IPA clone-ish", you're just guessing on ingredients and hops used in the original right? I've always wondered how people come up with recipes. Seems confusing or a shot in the dark to get anywhere close. Thanks again.

It wasn't even MY guess- someone posted the recipe from the brewmaster. Since that was like a 6000 gallon batch, though, I made a few changes. I didn't taste them head-to-head- it's almost impossible for me to get Lakefront beers here- but I loved it and thought it might be pretty close.

Yes, I believe so. Either 152 or 153. I never have problems with under-attenuation, usually over if anything, so that works for me. If you have a problem with beers finishing too high, you could go lower with good results.
