None of those are perle. Using different flavor hops will change the flavor. If you want to try different hops, it will be different. Not necessarily bad at all- but different.

I'd go with Sterling over US Goldings. It won't be the same beer, but it'd still be delicious.

I racked this to a secondary last night after 17 days.

S.G. was 1.022

Hopefully I can get another couple points in the next two weeks while it sleeps there.

Into my boil right now, so good so far. I agree my house smells like candy from the mash. Caramel candy.

I made this but with 1056. I have to say, it's sitting in a keg carbing up now, but this is _the_best_beer_ i've made thus far. Everything has finally come together, accurate mash temps, full yeast starter, pure oxygen wand, cool (~62*F) fermentation temps. This is the beer I'm going to judge all other recipes by.

Plus, the girlfriend loves it too. What's not to like? This is going to be in regular rotation for sure, like..every other week.

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

1 ounce Perle 60 minutes
.25 ounce perle 30 minutes
.25 ounce perle 5 minutes
.25 ounce saaz 5 minutes
I found an old recipie on NB for there clone that they don't sell as a kit anymore but as an ingredient list. I did there's before I found yours...'it looks like this .....

6 # good ole 'merican 2- row
0.5 # Cara Munich
5.75 # Munich
0.5 # Crystal 80

The hopping and mashing are basically the same.

*EDIT* - no its not - sorry:

1.5 oz Perle @ 60min
1.0 oz Saaz @ 0 min

Have you had this recipie and if not do you have any ideas where this one would be different.

I ordered these materials around x-mas by request of some of my brewing buddies that want me to brew it again. Oh,'and I almost forgot... NB still had no Pacman so they sub 1450 ( denny's fav ) which is what I used before so I'm sticking with it. I figure I'll make a huge starter cause I'm in a bit of a rush to get this one in the bottle.

Seriously considering doing your recipie as a comparison since this one is a mover..
