Seriously! I spent about $200 just to go see a college football game a few weeks ago... and we tailgated before the game, so we barely even bought anything during the game. Just some dippin dots and 1 piss beer for me.

Thanks, Eric, for posting this. Makes for easy reference.

I brewed this up with a tiny twist on the base grain since I couldn't get the GW Pale Ale Malt.

~3 gallon batch
3.5 lbs 2Row
3 lbs Maris Otter
8 oz Crystal 60
3.25 oz Carapils
Wyeast 1968
Cascade @5.5% AA
.5oz @70
.7oz @30
.7oz @5
.7oz @0
.6oz dry hop

I did a 75 minute boil. OG: 1.059 FG: 1.013
Fermented at 62-64F for about the first week and then let it raise to about 68F or so for another 3 weeks (laziness). Dry hopped for the last week.

By far the best beer that I've brewed. Amazing balance of sweet malt, 1968 ester, and hop bite. I seriously savor every sip of this. It's been a while since I've had a Mirror Pond, so I don't know if this is a complete clone, but it sure is damn good!

So 2 pounds of hops for a 3 gallon batch? Did you mean grams?

Could I trouble someone for a Partial Recipe for this brew? I don't have the equipment just yet to pull off a full AG batch and I LOVE this beer.

Thanks for your help

Take a look at the link in my signature or take the recipe to your LHBS.

I can't find Great Western Pale Malt. Would it help to just use Maris Otter instead? Or should I mix regular pale and MO 50/50 like the previous poster did?

I used the 50/50 based on Jamil's initial comments on the taste test of the first clone attempt. I didn't do a side by side comparison to Mirror Pond with mine because I was more concerned with just making a good pale ale, but the next time that I brew this I think I'll try with all MO.

It was a fantastic beer. I don't have the most refined palate and am fairly new to all this so I can't say that I'd definitely be able to discern a 100% MO beer from a 50/50, but I was extremely pleased with the results of this brew.
