I have looked around and have not been able to find any clone recipes of the beers brewed at Speakeasy Brewery (San Francisco, goodbeer.com), like Big Daddy, double Big Daddy, etc.

Has anyone come across these before? Let me know. They are good beers, would love to try and brew a batch myself.

Their website has info on the malt bill (just pale and munich) and the hop schedule, but not specific hop varieties (which is probably the most important thing for cloning an IPA or DIPA). You might try sending them an email to see which “Pacific Northwest Hops” they use (almost certainly some combination of Centennial, Cascade, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Amarillo.

That's great idea. I am actually going to tour their brewery this Friday. I will add my questions about the hops along the way. I will report back.

Yeah, please let us know if you've found anything out! I had a few (well, more than a few) pints of the Hunters Point Porter last winter, before I started brewing, and it was super good. Would love to clone that, as well as a number of others.

Guess I could just try to get to that brewery tour sometime.

I was at "brews on the bay" on 9/12 and they were one of my favorites that were there. There were a lot of fresh hop ales tis the season for them but there's was one of the best. it was their IPA but done with fresh hops, man it was good.

Yup, this is one clean brew. Great flavor, nice hopiness without being overboard, and a clean, crisp finish. Any info on the recipe (other than 2-row and munich) would be great.

The ones I have had from Speakeasy have been very good. I get a lot of Columbus in the Prohibition and Big Daddy beers.
