I've been pondering what to brew next, and wondered if anyone had a recipe for a clone of New Belgium's 1554. Preferably one that would be extract/specialty grains. My LHBS carries most White Labs yeast.

Thanks

I was looking for this too, did a search and only found this thread. If anyone has a recipe, that would be awesome.

Okay, I did my research and came up with four sites that had people attempting a clone, all with mixed results.

http://www.realbeer.com/discussions/...threadid=10416
http://www.brewing-forum.net/brewin...one_375479.html
http://forum.northernbrewer.com/vie...;highlight=1554
http://www.belchak.com/?a=bxml&id=19

Out of this, I estimated an extract recipe based off of what I know I can get easily, as my LHBS has been *pathetic* in supply lately.

4# Liquid Pale Extract (Alexander's)
2# Light DME
1# Crystal 120L
.5# Chocolate Malt
.25# Black Patent

1oz Northern Brewer 60min
.5oz Hallertauer 15 min
.5oz Hallertauer 5 min

White Labs 530 or 810

Based off of NB's site and other sites, the beer is made with lager yeast at higher temperatures, and likely has some sort of spice that is unnamed by NB. Some believe it is Seeds of Paradise. I have no idea what these are or where to get them, so I'm leaving them out. NB also says they use a lager strain at ale temps. I'm guessing the San Francisco yeast at higher temps would be the best option, some used the Abbey yeast and said they missed. The one extract recipe I found had 1# debittered black malt, another ingredient I don't have at my disposal. Only worries I have is too much unfermentable sugars that will give me another unintended stout (I overused Dark LME on a porter and made a sweet stout recently.)

Austin Homebrew says that they will make a clone for you, just tell them what beer it is, and they will send you the recipe and ingredients.

Even if they don't have it in the list of clones they have, they say they can clone just about anything, I was thinking of giving it a try.

Seeds of Paradise are like a very exotic peppercorn. Can replace regular ground pepper in high-end restaurants.

That's what I heard on a cooking show at least. The one with the guy who wears glasses and is actually pretty funny.

I'm suspecting they have a very distinct taste, so leaving them out would effect how close the clone comes to the actual beer.

Do you have to lager this beer at all or is the whole thing done at ale temps?

Has anyone done a clone yet? BYO has several New Belgian beer clones in its latest issue. I am thinking of all grain 1554 and wanted some input and advice.

I talked to the guy serving this at a local beer fest and he seemed to be in the know. He said they don't lager it!
