Orfy, thanks once again for the recipe, you did tell me to check your conversion from KG to Ounces, I did not.
I was going to ask what to make to pitch on top of this yeast cake but I think I will make your recipe again.
Mine was much lighter in color than you said it would be, so I checked you conversions.

The proper conversion for the grain is
.83 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine
.73 lb Carmel/Crystal malt
.2 lb Chocolate

After 6 days my gravity is 1.012

Taste of the one I made is good, will be a little hoppy, but will be very drinkable and I suspect a good beer.

I will make the recipe again with more grain and let you know how it goes.

Thanks again,
Barry

Cheers. I edited my post. I was probably, tired, drunk or lazy at the time of working it out. (Probably all 3)

I'm drinking a pint now......What a surprise.

It's still a little green and here is a real roasty flavour coming ot that is not in the original but it's mellowing with time and is making for a very good brew.

My first few where based on the BYO recipe but they don't use the same ingredients as the brewery so mine is an attempt to stay true.

Hobgoblin = BEST BEER EVER (tasted by me)
2 pounds of MO just isn't going to make for much more than coloured water.

Thanks orfy -- this looks fantastic! One question: whole or pelletized hops? would it make much difference?

By the way for any of those conversion-challenged brewers out there:
25 gm = 0.88 oz.
12 gm = 0.42 oz

(for some reason, my brewing program didn't convert this right, and I was getting an estimated IBU in the 600-700 range

You're right but the speciality grains will give the colour.

I was just putting together a PM to you Orfy when I started to wake up halfway through my cup of coffee and thought to myself, "Hey, idiot, I bet orfy already posted the recipe!"

Searched 'hobgoblin clone' and viola!

I've been trying to find someone who carries hobgblin around here but none so far. I know someone imports it, I hear of others trying it in the US.

Anyone know what company imports hobgoblin?

I know the beer store carries it, just might have to jump across the border to give it a try in the good ol Canadia eh?

This one is qeued up in the coming beer's list! I'm hoping kegging it will give it a slightly creamy texture. From what I've read it can have a watery feel straight from the bottle. That's one thing I'm not a huge fan of, a pint of flavored water. I never did like kool-aid

Cheers Orfy!

You won't be disapointed, this recipe (AG for me) has great body and a very good head from the keg. It's still young and is mellowing but it's got a little bit more to it than a bottled goblin.

Bottled mine last night, was very impressed with the flavor when i took a sample out of the secondary. Can't wait till it's carbonated and matured a little!

I ended up with about 4 gallons in the end due to all the transfering from primary to secondary to bottling bucket etc, i'd better start another batch, got a feeling this one is gonna be gone in a weekend once it's ready!

Just an update,

Tried my first bottle today, colour is spot on when side by side with the commercial version.

Tastes great, really great infact. Slightly lighter on the palet than the original but I think it benefits for it. It's a bit more carbonated than the original and has alot more glugability which I love!!!!

Over the moon with it to be honest, i've finally made a beer to be proud of, and one that I can really enjoy without trying to convince myself it's nice so I can drink it, (some of my passed efforts have been a bit ropey).

Thanks to Orfy for the recipe

I'll be doing this one again!

Ok, you guys talked me into it! I have to add this to my "future brews" list.

Thanks for letting us know how yours turned out, GeordiePete.
