Default Yep, another dead guy clone

Brewed up a dead guy clone, which is now carbed in the keg and ready to go, so i just couldn't resist the side by side comparison.



Left is the original, right is mine. myself and 2 friends had a hard time telling them apart. I am so happy with this brew, i will probably have to keep it on tap permanently.

Dead Guy Clone (Extract & AG- see note)


Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: Pacman
Yeast Starter: yes
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 at 60 degrees
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 at 60 degrees



13oz Belgiun Cara-Munich
13oz German Munich
7oz US Crystal 40 deg L

Steep grains in a bag at 155 degrees. Sparge with 1/2 gallon 170 degree water. Allow grains to drip into pot, but don't squeeze. Discard grains. Bring to a boil and add:

4lbs Alexanders Pale LME
4LBS LDME
(I substituted all XLDME)

1 oz perle 60 mins
1/4 oz perle 30 minutes
1/4 oz perle 5 mins
1/4 oz saaz 5 mins.

1 tsp Irish Moss 15 minutes

pacman yeast. If pacman is not available, try 1056 (American Ale yeast).


For AG, just use 12 pounds of base malt (maris otter works great, but I'm not sure it's a true clone) instead of the extract.

I couldn't get pacman yeast, so iused the 1056, and it turned out great.

This is not my recipe, it was shamlessly found online, however, for myself, the results were great.

yeah, Yooper is the force behind this recipe..im sure yours will turn out great.

I have been such a huge fan of the original rogue dead guy, that finding YooperBrews recipe, and having it work so well was awesome.

The forums here are such a huge repository of knowledge.

Did you actually find pacman? My Lhbs tried to find some for me, but according to their distributor, it would only be available as part of the Brewcraft kit.

Instead of 1056 (which Yooper recomened as a sub) the guy at my LHBS who I trust recommended 1338 Euro Ale instead I made a huge starter for it.

Yeah I found it there about 6 weeks ago I started a thread about it back then....on Wednesdays my GF and I have taken to meeting at the one on 26 mile road after work.....She loves it, and talked me into brewing the clone.

This is usually one of my "house brews"...Everyone loves it...Ive done it extract only at this point, but it may be one of the first AG that I do...Maybe this weekend if my LHBS has the hops...They didnt last time.
