Anyone have a clone recipe for Founder's Double Trouble? It's pretty high on my list of favorite beers and I'd love to try my hand at making it myself. I only have the capability to brew extract for now, but I've read that it's fairly easy to convert numbers between AG an extract recipes.

Looks like BYO Magazine has a clone recipe in their Dec ‘09 issue.

I emailed them and got this reply

20plato OG and the hopping is use Summit for bittering and a blend of Simcoe and Amarillo for flavor, finish and dry-hop. On my Pro-Mash recipe software I target 180 IBUs, but in reality I only extract probably half of that. Ferment it with an American yeast and dry hop it with at least a half ounce per gallon towards the end of primary fermentation.

I havent got round to brewing it yet though

I'm determined to try this. But my calculations show an OG of 20, or about 1.083 converted, and an ABV of 9.3% which is what my bottle says, to be pretty damn near impossible. Well not impossible but 84% attenuation.

Here's an admittedly noobish shot in the dark at a recipe:

12 lbs 2-row
2 lbs Munich
1 lbs Crystal 10L

60m - 3 oz Summit
30m - 1 oz amarillo/simco each
15m - 1 oz amarillo/simco each
5m - 1 oz amarillo/simco each
dry hop: 1.5 oz amarillo/simco each

any suggestions? I think the color needs to be really light and a pretty low fg. What's the best attenuation yeast out there? I've got a Bell's clone that hit 1.008 on a pale ale, might be a good candidate!

If someone can clone the flavor AND the color AND the clarity they should consider starting a professional brewery, IMHO. It appears impossible to me. That beer is still good the next morning when it is warm and flat. That is certainly not the case for many a DIPA leftover on my nightstand.

Did you ever try this? I would go with straight 2-row and double the dry hop
