Hey all, I was wondering if you could help me make a Flying Dog Hopfish clone. It's one of my favorite IPA's and I'm really missing it. I live in South Korea, so my ingredients are a bit limited. Here's the description of Hopfish, for those of you who have not had it before...
It gives some insight into the ingredients as well.
Now, for what malts and hops I have available:
Munich 3 malt
And hops are as follows:
Pride of Ringwood
(And 2oz. of Nugget from the states)
For yeast I have:
So yeh, I've never made my own recipe before, but I assume I would use pilsner as my base and I don't know beyond that hah. WLP001 I'm pretty sure of also
Their description says Magnum, Nugget, Ahtahnum. I have the 2oz of Nugget, but that's not much, and I don't know what substitute would be good for the others. Also, not sure if this is worth noting, but I really fell in love with this beer at the Philadelphia Real Ale Invitational
last year, where they seem to imply that they dry hopped it differently. Extra points if you went and can help me identify what they did there or how I can recreate that awesome taste (I know, it was a whole year ago, doh!). Do you think I should try sending Flying Fish and email and do you think they would help a homebrotha out?
Also, if anyone has any creative ideas for these listed ingredients be sure to post a recipe and I'll try it out
