So, on the front of a hop stoopid bottle it says: SG 1.084 and alcohol by volume 7.7%. When I punch this all into promash, I get an FG of 1.026 ---that seems like a huge FG something is going on here.... If you go by the posted recipe, SG 1.074 and FG of 1.016 would give you the 7.7 volume alcohol, which seems do-able.
I will be following the posted recipe w/o the hopshot, and I am worried about some off(vegetable, grassy) flavors from the huge bittering addition. Should I use the highest alpha hop I have? or maybe cut down on the IBUs and hope my buddies don't notice? Anything else I can do? or maybe just dont worry have a homebrew etc...

Thread necro, sorry about that.

On my bottle it says 1.085 and 8% ABV. They must be reformulating the recipe for some reason.

I brewed it with the hopshots and it turned out dead on. I'd just pick up some hopshots from NB, they are real cheap.

Subscribed.

Want to keep tabs on this thread, so I can brew this in late August.

brewed 6 gallons of this yesterday. came in a little under at 1.071. Tossed some less than active london ale yeast on it and am hoping for the best.

For those who have tasted the clone: How close is it? This is easily becoming one of my favorite beers, and I am planning on brewing the extract version over the winter.

Default i have brewed this....almost.

i brewed this about a month ago..i used wyeast 1056 yeast because thats what i had on hand. i also missed my O.G. by about 5 points due to equipment calibration..all that being said, it tastes pretty good. Yesterday i brewed a 10gal batch of the same recipe using the proper yeast and nailed the gravity...i will post progress..ill also let everyone know how the original batch tastes in a few days. initial tastes were thin tasting. Hopefully due to lack of carbonation.
