This beer is modeled after the Maritime Pacific Jolly Roger Christmas Ale which is a seasonal beer made in Seattle. 9% ABV it is not for the weak, tasting at 8 weeks there was no alcohol warmth and it tasting really nice. I was planning on bottling the whole batch of this because I didn't think it was going to be drinkable until next winter buy quite the contrary, this stuff is great! I hopped it up more that initially planned in prep to store it and still have hop character but so far I like it the way it is.

Old thread, I know, but I brewed this yesterday. Jolly Roger is also one of my favorite Winter beers. OG is 1.087, I used Maris Otter as the base and put the aroma hops in a hop jack. Tastes good so far. Thanks for the recipe!

The MO should go good with the WLP007, giving you a almost earthy taste in the end. Hope it turns out good for you. I remember it being amazing fresh, but lost it's luster with time, I like the hops though. I actually still have a couple bottles of this and had one about a month ago. It is essentially a barleywine now but too much sediment in the bottle because my process at the time. Good in it's own right though.

Thanks for posting this! I love Jolly Roger. I'm not set up for all grain yet so I'm going to try and make an extract/specialty grain recipe based on yours. I live in Vegas and LOVE Seattle. I try to make it up there as often as possible, but with a new baby it's probably going to be a while before I'll be able too again. I'm currently 3 batches deep on a pale ale recipe I designed thats very heavily influenced by Manny's, another one of my favorite northwest beers. Vegas is not exactly a great place for micro brews, we've got a few spots that make some pretty great beers but nothing close to the stuff you can get in the northwest. If I post my recipe on here would you mind giving it a look and let me know what you think?

no problem, all the non base malts do not need to be mashed so you could literally replace the 2 row with extract and steep the Crystal and caramunich. Do you do a full boil?

I haven't done a full boil yet, but I've got the capability to. I just don't have a wort chiller so I usually do 2.5-3 gallon boils. I was planning on sticking to the same recipe you've got but was just going to figure out the amount of dme to add. Since I think 14 lbs might be a little too much.

most definitely, I would imagine for a 2.5-3g batch, you are looking at something like 5-6lbs but that is just a guess there are tons of online calculators or better yet, buy beersmith.
