I picked up a bomber of this after hearing the CYBI episode, never had it before. The most striking thing is that Chad was dead on, it smells and tastes like blueberry and strawberry pancakes! It's the damndest thing. If the recipe didn't come directly from the brewer I wouldn't have believed it was so simple (and contained no fruit or spices).

Any idea what gives it such an interesting character? The only thing in the recipe I have zero experience with is palisade hops, but it doesn't seem like a very big addition. Is it an expert blend of English yeast esters, hops and the dark crystal malt?

I swear I'm not astroturfing for Anderson Valley, just very interested in this brew

Why would anyone want to drink fruit pancakes?

lol. There is more going on in the finish, but that's definitely the first thing I get.

I have been looking for a reliable recipe for this beer since trying a bottle of it in Australia about 12 months ago.It really had a unique orange/apricot type of flavour and aroma, probably due to age as well as ingredients.

I want to follow the recipe exactly however Palisade are very hard to find in Australia and being such a small amount can anyone suggest a suitable replacement.

Also the brewer stated the OG as 13 Plato which i thought was 1054. The bottle i had was 5.8% and the podcast says OG 1058. Would the correct OG be 1054 or 1058?

Thanks for any help Adam

They are said to be similar to Glacier, which I find similar to Willamette or any other neutral English-style hops. Even goldings wouldn't be a terrible sub, I am sure.

I made this a couple of days ago and did use Willamette as the sub for Palisade.
Also decided to go with OG of 1054 so just need to wait and see how it turns out now.

I was wondering the same thing. I'm about to brew this, next week, and was re-listening to the podcast and immediately thought, "What the hell?". Jamil also states during the recipe recap that the OG is 13 Plato, or 1.058.

I think 1.053 or 1.054 would be more accurate for this beer...?

Split the difference and shoot for 1056? I really can't imagine being off by less than 1* Plato will make or break your clone attempt.

No, I agree, especially with the deviations in efficiency I've been experiencing lately.

I think I was more asking the question out of confusion...?
