You have all the same ingredients per their website. I have not had a double dead guy to know what the hop characteristics are, all up front, spread throughout etc... and don't know about the percentages of the munich and crystal.

I would try emailing rogue and see if they can help with the percentages on the grains and maybe even the hops, you may be surprised.

silvervan83 - did you brew this? How did it turn out?

Also, you listed 5 oz. and 2 oz. at 60 minutes. Is this a typo - 7 oz at 60 minutes?

Is the second hop at a different time interval?

I would love to try the Double Dead Guy but it's nowhere to be found in Las Vegas.

I brew 5 gallon batches, is it simple enough to devide by two from a 10 gallon batch?
