Default Recipe wanted: Samuel Smith's Pale Clone

I am looking for an extract/partial recipe for a Yorkshire-style English Pale Ale. Copper-to-orange, very full body, creamy head, fruity-estery-(buttery), with balanced hoppiness and a dry dry finish. I *believe* I have exhausted the search function. Anyone?

Try and lay your hands on a copy of the magazine Brew Your Own that has 150 Classic Clone Recipes. On page 32 it has a recipe for Samuel Smith's India Ale with the following description: "India Ale is an amber ale with an explosive hop aroma and a deep, long, buttery malt favor."

I'd copy it here but don't know if would be prohibited or not.

Good luck!

I'm not talking about an IPA--I'm talking about something like Sam Smith's "organic" or "old brewery" pale ale.

I know it's not the same but was a suggestion to try and get you where you want to be. Try contacting member "hcarter". Their profile "in primary" has listed what you're looking for.

Good luck.

A lot of the characteristic flavor of Samuel Smith's ales has to do with using the right yeast. Ringwood is about the only widely-available yeast that'll give you the right flavor profile.

You're looking to brew an amber ale about 5%ABV. Basically, just keep the grist simple - UK pale malt, UK 'medium' crystal malt. Bitter with something neutral, finish with Goldings.

That's my take on it. It's a classic!

Thanks. I think I can more or less convert that to an extract brew. We'll see.

OP was a while back, but thought it worthwhile posting this.

Popular beer in my line-up. Very simple recipe, nice complex ale for such low gravity. Check the notes.

Cheers,

Screwy

That recipe will get you very close in flavor. I did something similar, using Halcyon pale malt and White Labs 037 Yorkshire Square Ale yeast but split the crystal in half with torrified wheat. Compared to the commercial version (USA) I felt mine was thinner and lacked the creamy smooth mouthfeel and malty aroma. If you can, get Thomas Fawcett malts (I didn't), they are based out of West Yorkshire and might be what the brewery uses.
