i'm surprised that they use/recommend 1056 for this beer. I have some and i would have thought that they used a Belgian yeast. My wife bought me a 4 pack for xmas, and at first i didn't like it, but it grows on you

If you live close to a Trader Joes, I believe they sell saffron threads for around 5 or 6 bucks. I'm not sure how many, but it would be more than enough for this brew

Default Midas clone update

I think the recipe in Extreme brewing is for Liquid malt extract. If you are using DME I think you should multiply by 0.8.

I finally tasted mine tonight after two weeks bottle conditioning. I did a side-by-side comparison with a genuine 2010 Midas and I must admit I was disappointed. While I thought it tasted very good, it did not hold up to the real Midas. The taste of my clone compared to the genuine was pretty close, however, the nose was totally different. The original had strong sense of honey and grapes while mine was much more subdued. Mine is still under-carbonated and if it truly clocks in at ~11% then I'm not sure the 1056 yeast-ies can really finish the job. I did a gravity check on the genuine compared to mine and measured ~1.020 vs. 1.014. Not much difference there but I definitely notice more alcohol and less sweetness mine compared to the genuine.

In general, it is a good beer and I like it. If it carbonates completely I will be satisfied. While not the genuine, it is still good and I foresee me trying again in the future. I suspect that my grape-concentrate addition fully fermented while in the original they stop fermentation early and preserve a lot more of the muscat character and sweetness while preventing it from becoming so dry. Hopefully time will only improve this beer.

HMM really...I thought I read a post some pages back that used liquid and was disappointed. I'll have to investigate, thanks for the heads up.

Looks like I can by a half a gram of saffron for 7 bucks. Is a half a gram enough?
