well i would be using less cause the original recipe is 1 oz at 5.5% so i would be using 0.63 oz at 8.7% But as Cryptochronolite mentioned the dry hoping using the cascade is really what gave the beer the citrusy nose and i am afraid that by using half of the amount of hops that noise will be much less. am i right to think that or does it not matter? I can try shopping around for a lower AA cascade to try and aim at using 1 oz if necessary

For dry hopping, I ignore the AA% since with no heat no substantial isomerization of alpha acids will occur.

Dry hop by quantity, not by AA%.

Others may disagree, but that's what I and many others do. Dry hopping is more art, less science.

This thread needs to split up I think. It starts out with one recipe that misses the mark and then ends with one that nails it.

There is a recipe on page one that fell flat and then the one by Cryptochronolite that everyone is now following.

Ran it and it came out great. Gravity came out a bit high 1.065 but this was my first decoct and didnt realize I boiled off more than expected till it was too late. Still fantastic tastes like Oberon and extra kick was good. Wife likes it too, will defintely make it again maybe even double batch it up and keg one and bottle the remaining for some co-workers to keep the cogs greased so to speak. Some ppl bring their teachers apples, I bring co-workers beer.

Thanks Cryptochronolite

Late comer in the thread...

Looks good guys. I take it for granted, living in MI, that Oberon is just part of summer.

My thought is, though, even if you can clone Oberon pretty closely, aren't there any improvements any of you would like in the beer? I'm brewing an Am wheat tomorrow after work, which is based off of an Oberon clone recipe (very similar to the one featured in the pictures), but adding/subtracting elements that fit my prediction of what Oberon could be for me. Calling it "Move Overon."


I'll let you know how it turns out.
