I was looking for a clone of Monk Madness by Rogue. I ended bringing a bottle of it to my LHBS and the owner help me out and came up with this recipe.

Rouge Monk Madness 1st attempt

A ProMash Recipe Report

Recipe Specifics

Batch Size (Gal): 5.00 Wort Size (Gal): 5.00
Total Extract (Lbs): 9.50
Anticipated OG: 1.077 Plato: 18.70
Anticipated SRM: 15.1
Anticipated IBU: 79.2
Wort Boil Time: 60 Minutes

% Amount Name Origin Potential SRM
73.7 7.00 lbs. Muntons DME - Light England 1.046 5
10.5 1.00 lbs. Munich Malt Germany 1.037 8
5.3 0.50 lbs. CaraAroma Germany 1.030 140
5.3 0.50 lbs. Melanoidin Malt 1.033 35
5.3 0.50 lbs. CarAmber France 1.034 30

Potential represented as SG per pound per gallon.


Amount Name Form Alpha IBU Boil Time
2.00 oz. Fuggle Whole 5.00 26.4 60 min.
1.00 oz. Chinook Whole 13.00 32.6 50 min.
0.50 oz. Chinook Whole 13.00 13.7 40 min.
1.00 oz. Amarillo Gold Whole 10.00 6.6 20 min.
1.00 oz. Centennial Whole 10.50 0.0 10 min.
1.00 oz. Amarillo Gold Whole 10.00 0.0 5 min.



Now the question is looking at the hop schedule the last ten minutes are for aroma. I do a full boil but unfortunately can not cool the wort in the same pan. I need to break it up in 2 different times in the same pan and cool it with my chiller. Will keeping half the wort and all the hops hurt the aroma because it is sitting in the pan for an extra 10-15 minutes longer while still being hot?

On tap or bottled:

American amber
Gumball head clone

Bulk Aging:


Reason: messed up title

Change it? Yes. Hurt it? Probably not. You could reserve half of the last addition and put it in the pot about 5 minutes before you start cooling it.

I must say, I've never seen Fuggles & Chinook used together for bittering.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
