Default Working on a Shock Top clone

My hbst didn't have a clone kit for this, but with a little research, came up with one that would be between a Blue Moon and a Shock Top. Brewed it on 4-17 and as I put it into the ferment bucket, had a gravity of 1.044 @82.

I just racked it to the secondary and had a reading of 1.014 @70.
Going to leave it for another week and then bottle. Had a good "tangyness" to it.
Here is a picture of my test sample


Hope it will clear up a little more by time for bottling. Might post the recipe if it turns out good.

If it comes out decent I might be interested in this for the wife. She loves shocktop and blue moon. Keep us posted how it turns out.

I'm in for a Shock Top clone. I can drink it like water in the summer. I know Austin Home Brew has a Shock Top kit.

The Brewer's Best Summer Ale kit is supposed to be a Shock Top clone. It comes with grains & dried spice/orange zest bag. My wife chose that one for her first batch. I have a pic of it outside in my gallery. It wasn't bad at all.

Bottled my Brewers Best Summer Ale a couple of weeks ago. I brewed this for the warm weather this summer but drank enough of it already that I will probably have to buy another kit.

I love Shock Top. Something I have always wanted to try to clone is the Wheat IPA beer they have. Im not sure where to start with it but I have yet to see someone try to make it.

Shock Top is on my do-not-drink list, since it comes from the BMC makers.
