I'm a huge fan of the BBC's Lost Sailor IPA, and would like to brew it myself. Has anyone ever come across a good clone recipe for this beer?

I'm looking for an extract recipe, just as an fyi.

Does not seem to be a very well known beer. Did you try contacting the brewer and asking for some tips on brewing it. Often they will tell you all the ingredients leaving out the times & hop schedules and mashing info.

This is a great beer and I've love to get a clone recipe. No idea myself.... If I had to guess I'd say that there were Cascades in there as finishing hops.

I lived in MA for a couple of years and even toured the BBC brewery. This is one of my all time favorite IPA's. If you come across a good clone recipe, I would like to try and brew it. Same goes for the Steel Rail.... I do not even begin to know enough to try and clone it myself.

Cascade is the finishing hop and they use Bullion for bittering. That is as much as I can say without getting shot.... Just kidding

Thats actually more of a clone for Gold Spike from BBC that Steel Rail. THe OG is too high for both of them.
