REALLY good. I think this is going to be very close to fat tire, it did have the biscuity fat tire flavor I was going for...I think it is a result of biscuit, munich and chocolate malts...with all crystal in the background.

Pacman just keeps impressing me. No rest for the wicked, this yeast cake is going to get an imperial stout!

just an update, I bottled this yesterday and the beer tastes fantastic, I think it is going to be pretty much spot on for fat tire, but I won't be able to tell %100 until in carbs up.

On another note, it finished at 1.011.....that pacman yeast is some amazing stuff.

I am currently drinking this beer, it is awesome! It is VERY close to fat tire, the only problem I have with it is that the toasty flavor is there, but a little on the subdued side and the caramel malts are just a little over the top. So I have modified the recipe and I think this will nail it for next time, I think the key is the pale chocolate malt, the IBU at 16 is spot on:


10.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row)
0.50 lb Pale Chocolate Malt
0.25 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine
0.25 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt
0.25 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt
0.25 lb Munich Malt
0.25 lb Biscuit Malt
0.25 lb Aromatic

1.00 oz Williamette [5.50 %] (60 min) Hops 16.0 IBU
0.50 oz Williamette [5.50 %] (1 min) Hops 0.3 IBU
Mash at 154 for 60


I know this is a complicated grain bill.....but it is going to be really good. Neutral Yeast is definetly part of it. I will use pacman again

What Crystals/Caramels do you use in this bill?

I am sorry, equal parts C20 and C40. I had another one of these beers last night, and they just keep getting better. I think a long cold, almost lager like, storage period really helps this beer.

Just took my first pull off this keg tonight - wow, it tastes great! I have one can of Fat Tire left from my trip to Colorado in May, I'm going to do a three-way taste test this weekend with my brother and a buddy of mine. We'll see how close I got it.
FWIW, even if its not spot on, this is a terrific beer, definitely one I'll be brewing up again.

You know it!! I have been tweaking it a little since I posted it, but the bulk of the recipe remains the same, and delicious!

OK, the verdict is in. Did the taste test with six different people. Cups 1 and 3 were my clone, cup 2 was actual Fat Tire. I had to put them into dark cups because my clone is definitely darker than the original. But the results were good - quality scientific data. The subjects were only told here are some beers, rank them according to your taste. One person liked the Fat Tire the best, but everyone else put it third. Nobody chose Fat Tire in second place, meaning that cups 1 and 3 were always next to each other (nobody said I like 1 but not 3 for example).

The one I brewed up is damn good, a bit maltier, toastier and biscuity than the original. Home run recipe permo.

Edit - I used your second updated recipe.



Reason: clarification
