After doing some reading/research, I've decided to narrow down my ruination clone to the following two recipes.
1. Yoopers or...
2. Dec '08 BYO recipe
I will be doing a partial mash and just had some general questions about the differences between the two recipes. Here's what I've noticed
-The BYO recipe includes irish moss for the last 15min of boil
-BYO uses 1 lb briess 2-row malt and 14oz of Briess crystal malt 15L vs Yooper's 1lb of crystal 20L for steeping
-BYO shows steeping in 3qts water for 45minutes (kind of low?) then adding water to make 6 gals of wort (isn't this kind of strange?)
- What is yoopers steeping schedule?
-Hop schedule is slightly different
-Yeast BYO/Stone recommended WLP 002 vs Yoopers Pacman (I heard using WLP 007 is actually the closest to Stone's)
Just looking for a little help here in making this clone before buying all my materials. Has anyone made and compared the two recipes?
For reference, here's a link to the Dec '08 BYO clone:
Thanks in advance!
