I live 5 mins from Left hand brewery and LOVE the lefthand imperial stout. I would love to make a clone.. Anyone tried it or have a recipe?

One of my favorite Imperial Stouts. It is hard to find here in VA but when I do I stock up! I brewed my first imperial 2 months ago, can't wait to try it.

It is an amazing beer... We get a growler of it pretty often, plus its nice to know the folks that work there!! What recipe did you use for your imperial? I'm trying to find a good one..

ASk the brewer! Most micro breweries are very cooperative with homebrewers. They won' give you exacts but a pretty close recipe usually. Only problem is if they happen to use a proprietary yeast strain in which case it can't help to ask for a Quart of slurry!

It's a tie for me between this one and Founder's Breakfast Stout. Yummy!

I think the 8-8-8 RIS is very similar to the Left Hand but is a little bit less roasty. If you sub roasted barley for some of the chocolate malt in the 8-8-8 I think it'd be really close.

I used the all grain recipe out of Jamils' Brewing Classic Styles. It is called Tri Centenial Imperial Stout. 1.100 OG, 100 IBU's, and 100 SRM. It's a monster.

Maybe i'll give this a shot. Thing is I would have to do a partial or extract brew considering I only have a 6 gallon bottle filler 2 carboys and a 6.2 gallon brewpot. I don't have a sparge. Wonder how I can modify this to extract or partial mash.

I'm sure you could pull off the 8-8-8 as a PM. With all those specialty grains you'll need some chalk to increase the pH, but other than that it would be straightforward I think.

Yeah? Besides the equipment I have, what would I need to sparge a partial mash? Any good links to building my own? I like building!!
