I love the spiciness of Whitsun and I want to get in one more nice summer beer. Could someone either help me out with an extract recipe or point toward one that is already formulated? For those of you may not be familiar with Whitsun, here is a link to its page on the web

Thanks

Anyone have any thoughts on this? Was hoping to stop by the LHBS on my lunch today.

Was just in Mich this past week and picked up Arcadia Ale sampler pack (IPA, Scottish and Nut Brown) after reading the description of the WhitSun I wish I picked that up instead....

Not much help here..... Is it similar to Oberon? There are quite a few recipes that are close to Oberon to get you started. Have you tried to contact the brewer? I've had good experiences contacting other breweries on recipe direction. With any luck they will give you percentages and mash schedule and with a little help here you can convert to extract. Most seem happy to help out homebrewers!

Good Luck and keep us posted,
Dan

I have not tried the Whitsun, I will, so many beers so little time and all that. When it comes to Arcadia, I absolutely love "Sky High Rye" - that is just a beautiful summertime beer. I'm off to look for a clone recipe.
