I brewed this recipe:

9 lbs 8.0 oz Golden Promise
2 lbs 8.0 oz Munich Malt
1 lbs Caramunich Malt
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L
2.0 oz Black (Patent) Malt
1.00 oz Summit [18.50 %] (60 min)
1.00 oz Cascade [5.40 %] (60 min)

0.50 oz Simcoe [12.20 %] (20 min)
0.50 oz Amarillo [9.50 %] (20 min)
0.50 oz Ahtanum [4.50 %] (20 min)
0.50 oz Amarillo [9.50 %] (10 min)
0.50 oz Simcoe [12.20 %] (10 min)
0.50 oz Ahtanum [4.50 %] (10 min)
1 Pkgs British Ale II (Wyeast Labs #1335) (With a starter)

2.00 oz Simcoe (Dry Hop 7 days)
1.00 oz Amarillo (Dry Hop 7 days)

I have a grand total of ONE Furious on hand, so I can see how close this is. It seems weird to have such a hoppy American IPA have British yeast, and golden promise malt, but I tried it. The recipe came from several sources- Beeradvocate, Surly's own website, and other "google" finds. I hope it come out as well as I expect!

I brewed yesterday, and the beer is sitting right next to me gently bubbling at 66 degrees. (It's cold in here, by the way! I miss summer already!)

Looks like a hoppy, hoppy, hoppy, hoppy, hoppy, hoppy, hoppy um hoppy ale. Definately not a malt driven beer. What is Golden Promise? I mean what does it add as opposed to 2-row pale?

But the real reason I responded is it is 68 in the house, and after living in Fl. for 20 yrs, I am ready for spring. Hate the idea of turning on the heat.

It's in the low 60s in my house, but I pitched at 66 and it's now at 68.

Golden Promise is much like maris otter, in my opinion. I've only used it a couple of times before, but when I talked to the owner of Surly back in June, he told me it was an integral part of the beer's profile. Who am I to argue? So I gave it a try.

Can't wait to hear how this comes out. My Surly clone came up a bit short.

BYO had a Surly clone that I just bought ingredients for. It was listed as extract and so when I converted it to all-grain I left the base malt as 2-row. Wish I had realized it used Golden Promise for the base malt.

The grain bill and hop schedule are a little different but it's pretty much the same idea as yours.

Uses the Simcoe and Ahtanum at the end. Warrior in place of the summit. Same yeast as you have listed.

I hope to be able to get it brewed in the next couple weeks.

I'll try to remember to update this thread with the outcome! The fermenter is right next to me here in the home office, so it's easy to keep an eye on it!

Might have to try this recipe. I went back home to Minnesota over the summer and we couldnt get Surly Furious in the Southeastern part of the state. It was rather disappointing.
Good to know about the Golden Promise.

I'm curious about the 60 minute addition of cascade. Not the usual bittering hop! What is the logic behind that addition? Also, I'm surprised there are no latter additions after 10minutes-it's such a hoppy beer I would have thought flameout or near flameout hops would be crucial. Not being critical at all, just want to hear from the master before I brew it myself as written in the OP. Thanks Yooper!

My logic for using cascade? Well, I have over three pounds of cascades, for one thing!

I agree that there should be more aroma/flame out hops, but I'm going to try doing it like this and then use three ounces of hops for dryhopping.

Almost all of my IPAs are loaded up with hops in the last 10 minutes, so this is a big departure for me!
