I can't wait to find out how this turns out crypt0. Tankhouse is one of my all time favorite brews and I'd like to try this recipe out.

I'm cold crashing the fermenter now and dry hopping with 1/2 oz cascade. It finished a little light - 1010 I was hoping for 1012. Clear as a bell and the malt profile is very close. Once its kegged I'll post pics.

I might have to post one more follow up where I compare the two beers side by side.

I didn't end up dry hopping the beer and I suppose I could have, but not having a real tankhouse in several weeks I don't remember the hop aroma being very strong.

The bitterness is great. the malt profile is extremely close - I might add a bit more buiscuit and a splash more chocolate to my next go-round. I've served this to my friends, who all quaffed down multiple pints. They say they like it better then the actual Tankhouse! This keg's going to go fast which means another brew is in order.

The colour might be a little bit lighter then the original, but this picture is under a halogen lamp to show the clarity. It's actually quite dark.

Easily one of my best brews to date.





PS I apologize for the pilsner glass

I've actually had so much Tankhouse last year that I grew tired of it (although I can now say the same for Flying Monkey Hoptical Illusion). This is making me want to pick up a 6 for this weekend. Nice job crypt0 -- looks great!

I'm gearing up to do my first all-grain, hopefully soon. This might be a good candidate for my first brew!

I just finished brewing my clone atempt at this this morning, it was my first all grain brew and smoothest brew day so far. took me 4 hours start to finish including clean up and first time trying out a wort chiller i made. It cooled my wort to 68 degreese in 11 min i hit my target gravity of 1.051 and figured my mash efficiency at 27.8 ppg.
Heres the recipe i ended up with:

bg - 1.042
og - 1.051
ibu - 43
7# pale ale malt
1# munich
1/2# crystal 60
1/2# buscuit
30z chocolate
1oz cascade(7.8 aau) 60 min
1/2oz cascade 30 min
1/2oz cascade 15 min
us-05 yeast
im gonna dry hop with 1oz fresh leaf cascade

I actually brewed my own all grain clone last night based on input from this topic. The recipe I came up with is close to yours:

8.5 lb 2 row
2.0 lb munich
5.0 oz chocolate
4.0 oz crystal 60
4.0 oz biscuit

hops:
1 oz cascade 60min
1 oz cascade 30min
1 oz cascade 15min

yeast:
S-05

I actually ended up with a little over 6g in the fermenter and my OG was a tiny bit low (1048).

In the fermenter bubbling away this morning when I woke up, I will say that it does seem dark, but the SRM (15.5) and IBU (39.8) are on course according to the software. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Being one of my favourite beers, does anyone have the ability to help me convert this recipe to a grain-with-extract version? What's the general procedure (if any) to do this?

EDIT: Think I got it.

Steep @ 150 for an hour:
5oz chocolate malt
4oz crystal 60L
4oz biscuit
2lb munich

Top up to 6.87 gallons, boil
Add: 6.6lbs briess golden light LME

Follow same hops/yeast procedure. Final batch size of 6 gallons, 15.1SRM, OG1.053, FG1.013, ABV5.24%. Should be pretty close, if not bang-on.

I just stumbled on this thread. How did the extract/grain version turn out? I have gone AG but I have some extract to use up and was wondering what to brew and then I think I found a recipe... this one!

I'd like to know how it turned out also. I just tried Tankhouse for the first time and it is fantastic.

Mine are still not carbed enough - I'm waiting until the weekend to try another. Getting impatient with this one.

I have moved them to the laundry room now - the warmest room in my house.

Going to brew this clone this weekend. Can anyone confirm if they hit the mark with their recipe? Still undecided on how much chocolate to use and 1 or 2 lbs of Munich.
