Just racked my clone to the keg. It's damn near spot on. I nailed my OG and FG, so my clone is dead on at 4.7%. The only difference I can detect is in the malt backbone. As much as I love Rahr 2-row,...

I'm a huge fan of this beer. More importantly, my wife is. Which means I'll be brewing the best clone I can come up with.

Here's what we know from Terrapin's website...

The medal winner was a partial boil but there is absolutely no reason not to do a full boil if you have a big enough kettle.

It's been a long time since I've brewed this one. Glad to see the post is still alive!

The Amber LME I used is made from 2 row and C60. If I had it to do over again, I'd substitute 1 pound of C60...

It sounds like you're competition brewing. If that's the case, the simple answer is to brew at the extreme limits of the style. With any beer, shoot for (actually overshoot) the high end on gravity....

Not being a smart-ass but was there any reasoning behind your hop selection? I'm from the KISS school, so I have less tendency to toss in a bunch of varied hops. That said, if you have a plan for the...

One of the few times I haven't been able to find much via Google. From the tasting notes I see, I'm thinking this beer is likely all 6-row plus a noble hop (think Hallertau). Golden amber seems to be...

If you want the absolute best results (to style), use MALTED white wheat for 50% of your grain bill. I've sampled and judged a lot of Hefs and I've only ever given a high score on one with unmalted...

I haven't used it but I'm thinking about it. Based on the link attached, I think I'd start at 63, let it get to about 80% finished, bump to 68, let it finish and then cold crash. But that's what I do...

In short, yes. Out of the 300 or so beers I've judged over the past few years, at least half could be improved by good fermentation temperature control.

Yeah, I've never had to do it before, but it's certainly a better alternative than just dumping it.

I agree that mutation happens differently in even very similar environments. That said, the Chico strain is 'peachy' in aroma all around. Smell a vial of WLP001, a smack pack of 1056, or a rehydrated...

Everything already said I've found for the most part to be true. Sorry for the 'same strain' confusion. For what it's worth, Denny's Favorite 50 is reputed to be Brewtek CL50 (Brewtek now defunct).

As (sort of) already mentioned, flocculance is the culprit. Denny's is more flocculant. While it'll stay in solution early in fermentation, it drops pretty hard when it runs out of sugars it likes...
