Default Stone 2009 Old Guardian clone

Brewed this Saturday... took a bunch of pics, thought I'd post them:

23 1/2 pounds of grain...


Very full 10 gallon mash tun


The hops plants are in the background looking on nervously...

First time whirlpooling actually worked for me...


Nice clear beer...


In the fermenter...



Turned out 1.105 OG. Two points high, but I'll take it!

Where did you get this recipe? Can you post it?

Yeah it does. I'm salivating at the prospect of having 5 gallons of this beer.

There has been a recall on all Old Guardian kits from every HB store the world over. Now ship it to me so that I may turn it into Pee, Sweat and Vomit.

Also looking forward to the recipe location/posting of whats in it.

It's the Can You Brew It clone recipe, except I subbed Magnum for Warrior for the bittering hops (since I had 'em in the freezer).

I put it in Brew Builder at BMW:

Edit: Not in the Brew Builder recipe, but I also used 1.2 tsp gypsum at 15 min before flameout, 1.2 tsp Irish moss 15 min before flameout, and 1.2 tsp yeast nutrient 10 min before flameout.

Just moved this beer off the dry hops. Looks great, tastes good but still needs to mature a bit. I think I'm going to bottle it all rather than keg it, and give it a few more months.

Looking very dark in the carboy


And a lot lighter in the glass

Update: Won 2nd place in American Strong Ale in the state fair with this, as well as best in show in another local homebrew competition.

It's aging nicely... another 5 or 6 months and I think it'll be at its prime.
