Lagunitas Sucks & Holiday Leftovers are thus far my favorite beer I've ever tasted... I've searched High & Low for a clone for this recipe, but I've have yet to see one. I dunno if anyone out there has tried this or is getting close. Or maybe I'm a total fruitcake for loving this beer so much

Anywho just thought I'd throw this out there & see if anyone has any leads

Thanks Guys!!


Josh

Have you tried asking Lagunitas for the recipe?

I'd be very interested as well. This is easily a top 5 beer of all time for me.

For what it's worth, I contacted the brewery and they have assured me that when the new brew house ramps up we will see this beer again. Not sure if you saw it or not, but they also just announced they will be opening a second brewery in Chicagp next year.


If they'd provide guidance on how to make it that would be stellar.

Did the clone turn out? Even close would be better than no Lagunitas Sucks. Didn't see any this year and I'm jonzing.

this became my favorite beer...then it quickly disappeared... then I discovered Pliny the Elder... but I'd love to try them back2back to compare.... but Lagunitas Sucks will always have a special place in my heart as it turned me 'on' to the Hop-side

I emailed the brewery last year, but never tried to make it. I was very confused with the high FG they acheived, but that has to be from the 'cereal grains' (rye, wheat, and oats) and a high mash. Here is what they said.

<fromBrewery>
I don’t have the ratio of hops to grain but I’m attaching the sales sheet for the beer, it lists the 4 types of grain. I asked our head brewer about the hops and he gave me a few for you to try: Chinook, Simcoe and Apollo.
