Does anyone have a good clone or close to of this recipe? I have one left of a sixer I bought the other day, and love it.
I did search, and came up with one clone, but the bottle says liberty and goldings hops, and the recipe doesn't use either.
I saw that a clone recipe was published in BYO but no sure when.
Thanks,
Dave

There's an extract recipe for it in Extreme Brewing, by the head brewer at DFH....i'll look it up in a bit if I can find the book.

The Extreme Brewing version is pretty much an extract version of the above:

10oz Amber Malt
10oz 60L
8oz Light Chocolate
2oz Roasted Barley
7# Light DME

.5oz Warrior @ 60
8oz Brown Sugar @ 10
1oz Vanguard @ flame out.

Ringwood Yeast @ 68-71

Here it is, from Bryan Selder's of DFH. It's an extract recipe, so you have to convert if you're doing AG.

7 lbs light DME
10 oz British Amber malt
10 oz 60L crystal
8 oz light chocolate malt
2 oz roasted barley

1/2 oz Warrior (60 min)

8 oz dark brown sugar (last 10 min of boil)

1 oz Vanguard at end of boil

Targets: 1.070 OG, 1.015 FG; 50 IBU

Ringwood Ale yeast Wyeast 1187 (which I think is the same as British Ale, if you're using White Labs)

This recipe is for a full volume boil (6 gallons to start). I've never made it myself, but I don't see how the 1/2 oz of Warrior is going to gain you 50 IBU. But that's how it's written in Extreme Brewing.

edit: beat to the punch!

Thanks for all of the replies! These are the recipes that I found. I was surprised that none of the recipes included Liberty Hops or Goldings Hops. Or Dry hoping. On DFH's website, it says that the India Brown Ale is has a hop schedule close to their 60 min ipa. Wouldn't you think that would include some dry hoping?
I have only been doing this for a year, but from what I know the 60 min warrior will give good bitterness. I never used Vangaurd, but I am assuming the 20 min will give aroma and the flameout flavor. Has anyone tried this recipe? Would dry hoping make it better?
Thanks!
Dave

Edit: I just read the bottle again. It says "whole leaf liberty and goldings."

I tried the recipes that have been posted. It came out pretty close. I too was worried that Warrior would make this too bitter, but hell, it's a India Brown ale!

I'd make it again......

while that is the recipe posted in extreme brewing by sam, it should be noted that the bottle of the beer says that they use liberty and goldings hops.

I think that's been established...Solution is simple. Sub out the hops.
