I just thought I would share my New Years celebration and ask for some help in return!
So the evening started with a not so quick trip to BevMo, they were packed! Here is what I picked up!
North Coast - Brother Thelonious
Chimay Ale - Grande Reserve (Blue)
Blue Moon - Grand Cru
Sierra Nevada - Estate 2009
On the way back me and the wife stopped at our favorite Sushi place, and with our Shushi and Sake we opened the Chimay Grande Reserve. I was completely blown away ! ! ! This might just be the most amazing beer I have ever had ! ! !
Here is where I need some help. I want to try and clone this in the worst way, so far I have been unable to find any recipes or info on even where to start! Can someone help me out. I would like to start with a simple extract/partial mash recipe to keep the cost down as I will brew this allot till I get it tweeked to where I like then go AG with it.
Thanks in advance....
P.S. I also tried the Blue Moon Grand Cru when we got home, it really did not live up to the hype for me! It actually went the opposite from what I was expecting, it tended to be a very bitter almost sour version of the regular Blue Moon, yet with out the Zesty Orange and Spice I love so much.
Tonight I will break out the Brother Thelonious and the Sierra Estate and give them a go!
