Any body getting closer to a recipe for Raging Bitch ?

Austin Home Brew has a Tripel IPA, and the few that have brewed it say its good, but not like Raging bitch.

Any help would be appreciated as I want to brew this next. Something close will be fine for the first try.

Thanks

For 5 gal. : 12 lbs 2-row and 1.5lbs crystal 60
the bittering hop is probably warrior, the flavor and aroma columbus and amarillo. dry-hopped with amarillo. The flying dog website has a good description of the ingredients and gravity points to hit. I would experiment with different yeast strains to figure out which one you like, and let us know. I tried the white labs trappist yeast, and it was good, but it wasn't the raging b*tch.

I need to get more of the commercial version, and then I'll probably make another batch with new yeast.

Thanks for the reply.

Starting with your recipe, I entered it into Beersmith and came up with:

* I want to end up with 5.5 gallons
* Boil size - 7 gallons
* Brewhouse eff - 75%
* I need close to 15 lbs of Pale malt - 2 row with the 1.5 lbs of Crystal 60 to get my gravity where I need to be to get the 8,3 % alcohol
* I guessed at Wyeast Strong Ale Yeast - # 1388. - 2 packs

Would love to hear about possible boil times for the bittering and flavor hops and when to dry hop. Do you dry hop after primary fermentation, at the time of secondary fermentation or some other time.

Also, is a mash temp of 158 F good ?

I pretty new to this and this is my first Belgium / High gravity Ale and my first time trying to come up with a clone recipe. Would love some more comments and suggestions.

Thanks

bill

an earlier poster had mentioned Duvel as the yeast they were hinting at with "el Diablo". any chance of culturing some of their yeast from a bottle?

windsors- I would mash close to 150, and add the bittering hops at 60 min, and the flavor and aroma at 15, and 5 mins? I dry-hop in primary after fermentation has finished, but you can do it in secondary.

here's my first stab at cobbling together an extract / mini-mash clone:

suggestions?

wishing I planned this in time to rack on top of the yeast from my Dubbel.

Love the Raging Bitch. If anyone does successfully clone it, please post the recipe!

Me too! I bought enough ingriedients to brew two batches of biermunchers octoberfast ale, got one batch left. I will try to do one night this week and then I told my wife that a SA summer ale was next. I suppose that the raging bitch will happen in july some time.
