Boston and I are brewing these this weekend (actually I'm starting mine now)...so it would be appropriate to de-classify the recipes I guess.

You up for it bro?

I'm heating mash water....

FYI: Here is the criteria for which Dude and I based our recipes. Both batches will be critiqued in April following the Raleigh Beer Fest. I think it would be interesting to drink it with & without the randall


Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale


ABV: 7.25%
Malts: Crisp English Pale, Carapils, and Munich
Hops: Magnum, Centennial, Chinook, Amarillo and Palisade
Loose Cannon Hop 3 Ale - called Hop 3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over 3 pounds per barrel! Also the beer is hopped 3 ways - in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped. Winner of the Overall Best of Show Award in the Maryland State Governor's Cup 2005 Competition and voted the #1 IPA by Mahaffey’s Pub. We are very excited about this new product and have decided to make this beer available year round!

Sounds like a fun competition between you two. Do you guys have any OG, color or IBU guidelines to help formulate the recipe? Or are you just going to try to get as close as possible from the ingredient list and color from the bottle?

Whooo!

It's cool that you guys figured it out- I hear the guy who runs that brewery is sort of a jealous guardian of his secrets...

(But it's a Baltimore brew- so yeeee-ha! Support your local brewer!)
