use time oz variety form aa
boil 60 mins 0.75 Saaz info leaf 6.0

boil 5 mins 0.5 Styrian Goldings info pellet 5.1

1 tsp Irish Moss at 15 min

Mash 154* for 60 min

Next time I will probably shorten the boil to 90 min. I am not sure why 150 is called for. I don't know if the long boil contributed much to the flavor.

Just had this beer at House of Brews in Manhattan the other night, loved it! I like the looks of your recipe, I might give this a shot in the near future. The only thing I might change is swapping out the corn for a little Belgian Aromatic. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks! I am about to make this again. The one thing I'll do differently aside from the boil time is allow it a few weeks in the keg before I start drinking it. It got much better with a little time.

good to know. i've only had this beer the one time, but i thought it had a very intriguing pear flavor. did you get any of that in your version?

Not so much pear flavor in my first batch but I think with more appropriate water (I now use the ezcalc spreadsheet) I'll get closer to the original.
