I've been searching around and looking at the various suggestions for a Gumballhead clone. I'm fortunate to live close to Three Floyd's, so at the very least it will be easy for me to do some side-by-side comparison. I've been wanting to get this in the pipeline soon and figured now is as good as time as any.
After researching, I found the all-grain clone recipe on Brewmasters Warehouse. I'm still in the extract with specialty grain phase though, so I used their awesome Brew Builder tool to try and match up an extract recipe. I'm looking for some feedback to see if what I came up with looks reasonable since it's slightly different from the extract recipes I've seen.
I can't quite do a full boil in my current pot. I can safely go to 4.5 or 5 gallons, but don't feel comfortable going up to the full 5.5 or 6 to account for the boil-off. I know that will affect the hopping somewhat, but I don't know how dramatic it would be.
So here's what I came up with:
1 lb. 2-row
1 lb. Caravienne
1 lb. White wheat
3 lbs. Breiss Wheat DME
0.6 lbs. Breiss Extra Light DME
(I did the odd amount to match up the OG. DME comes in 3 lb. bags and I have the odd amount of Extra Light on hand to make up the difference)
0.25 oz. at 60 min.
0.5 oz. at 15
0.5 oz. at 5
0.75 oz at flameout
2 oz. dry hop
Expected stats come up to be:
These compare very closely to the all-grain recipe expected stats.
Any feedback or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
