Recipe Type: Extract   
Yeast: Pacman   
Yeast Starter: yes   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.066   
Final Gravity: 1.018   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 at 60 degrees   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 at 60 degrees   

Dead Guy Clone

1 pound Cara-Munich
1 pound Munich
1/2 pound crystal 40L

Steep grains in a bag at 155 degrees for 30 minutes. Sparge with 1/2 gallon 170 degree water. Allow grains to drip into pot, but don't squeeze. Discard grains. Bring to a boil and add:

4lbs Alexanders Pale LME
4LBS LDME
(I substituted all XLDME)

1 oz perle 60 mins
1/4 oz perle 30 minutes
1/4 oz perle 5 mins
1/4 oz saaz 5 mins.

1 tsp Irish Moss 15 minutes or Whirlfloc

I used pacman yeast. If pacman is not available, try 1056 (American Ale yeast).

o.g. was 1.066
f.g. was 1.018

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _______
Edit- More "slight" changes!

For AG, I find that I like this recipe best:

10 pounds maris otter
1 pound Cara-Munich
1 pound Munich
1/2 pound crystal 40L

Mash at 156-158 for 45 minutes or until conversion. Sparge to get up to boil volume.

Hops:
1 ounce Perle 60 minutes
.25 ounce perle 30 minutes
.25 ounce perle 5 minutes
.25 ounce saaz 5 minutes

Shoot for an IBU range of 30-35. My perle hops have been all over the map as far as AAUs go- I have some that are 9.3% and some that are 6.9%, so you may need to adjust these amounts.

Reason: slight change in amounts

When you switched to Xldme did you re calculate the recipe to convert the Lme to 3.2 pounds DME....making a total of 7.2 pounds XLDME...or did you use 8 pounds?

For the record, Rogue lists their malts used in Dead Guy as Northwest Harrington, Klages, Maier Munich and Carastan. That said, any north american 2-row should be just fine as a base malt, and "true-to-form" for the original recipe. If you're curios, Carastan pretty much is the same as 40˚L crystal. I'll put making up an AG version of this on my brew-to-do list.

First post so please be gentle...

Thought this recipe looked great and thought I'd try the Extract version for my 3rd batch. However, by mistake I picked up White Labs California Ale Yeast. Anybody know if this will work with this recipe and what changes I can expect?

It'll work fine....I did it with Euro Ale Yeast and it came out fantastic...Any good clean ale yeast will work. You're going to love it, it's a great recipe!
