Any theories on the 90 minute boil? With my setup, I prefer a 60 minute, but I've heard in some circles that 90 minute is used for more carmalization, or some such...

Stone boils everything (almost everything) for 90 minutes.

I boil the snot out of my wort so 60 minutes is usually sufficient. For a really intensely hoppy beer 90 minutes it the way to go though.

My 2row & crystal regular AB comes out exactly like AB.

So whats the verdict? Double AB 1.5 lbs of crystal & enough 2 row to get way up there, then all chinooks to go over 100IBU or what? I have a really complicated recipe (10 malts & 5 diff hops)

Brewers want to know!

I was talking with Saccharomyces via PM and I've settled upon 1.5 lbs 120L, 8 oz CaraPils and enough Maris Otter & DME to get me up to 1.097.

2 oz Nugget (12%) @ 60, 1 oz Nugget @ 20, 1/2 oz Cascade (6%) @ 10, 1/2 oz Cascade at 5. Dry hop with 1 oz Cascade and 1 oz Nugget.

Yeast = WLP007

Stone recipes are really quite simple when it comes down to it...most of the DB clones floating around with special B, aromatic, etc etc, are probably off the mark. Either that, or they're taking a round about, overly complex way of arriving at the flavor profile.

Of course, I'm just repeating what I've read/extrapolated/been told. I'm going with the above grain bill as soon as I can fit it in the rotation. I'll report back with results ASAP, but that probably won't be for a few months.

Pelikan,

Your recipie sounds even simpler, but I think I'll go with 1.5 lbs 120L & enough 2 row to get to my OG, but I really, really like the chinooks in the regular AB (my clone is dead on)

I'll probably brew this Jan 19th or so. I'll post back when its done (sometime in April or May)

Nice. I worked out my hop schedule with david_42, using what I have on hand. Chinooks are good stuff though...similar to nugget (one of my faves). I threw in the cascade to get the citrus/grapefruit undertone, as by my understanding the double B uses a Centennial/Chinook combo. So the ideal hop schedule might look something like what I have above, but with Chinook subbed in for Nugget, and Centennial subbed in for Cascade. Although it's very possible the DB is all Chinook.

I am drinking a DB right now, and am curious about the hops I taste. Very floral, and pleasantly bitter. There is a nice sweet malt backbone to this brew, a little toasty character. I have never used Nugget hops in any of my brews. Is that really what they use in DB? I thought AG was all chinook? I like this better.
