Holy Grail Ale Clone

I had Blacksheep's Holy Grail Ale from a keg once and I really liked it, although I wouldn't say it knocked my socks off. I needed another WY1469 beer to go with some others to get mileage out of...

Six months ago I would have said opening the lid is a sure path to a raging wild yeast infection. I had one once when I first started that I blamed on peeking at the time. Lately I have been...

Call me practical, but I'd go for something with low color, low ABV, and no weird ingredients SO IT WILL BE READY TO DRINK SOONER!!! Think about a small bitter or a blonde. Or a smallish American...

I am using a round keg--with a single loop of soft copper w/hacksaw cuts on the bottom. It has never stuck.

I mash in a converted keg with a lid from one of my boil kettles and a ratty old blanket draped over. I generally lose 3 degrees in 90 minutes--less if the tun has a lot of grain in it, more if it's...

I bet it's in the yeast. The most "English" results I have ever obtained were from a basic English grainbill and tortured manipulation of pitch rates and fermentation temperature.

Do you normally batch sparge, Mpavlik22?

I have also captured yeast this way--with the blowoff tube and sanitized foil. I did it once and did not get the dreaded wild yeast infection, but I was nervous the whole time. I do not recommend...

I have done 3 batches with 1469 in the last 2 months or so. None has cleared yet without refrigeration, which is a big pain. But they have all tasted so good that I can't stop.

When made with my well water, it is toast after a few weeks. I keep 3-4 gallons in a bucket made with distilled or RO water and have found that it stays crystal clear for at least 4 months.

I have never done a true no-sparge, but I have done a lot of patrigyles.

If you have another pot laying around, you might as well heat another 7 gallons of sparge water in it while the mash is...
