I would like to brew the Nugget Nectar clone from BYO Beer Replicator. I'm planning on doing the extract method. I'm new to brewing and trying to figure some of this out.
I have searched the forum and have read a lot about this recipe, but i can't find a definitive answers on a few things.
Below is the recipe.

My questions:
1- Just to clarify, is this a 60 or 90 minute boil (original magazine say article says 60)
2- For the DME- is this light?
3- For the AAU numbers, i think i understand how the numbers work and to follow the recipe and get the right numbers, you should adjust the amount per AA % correct? If so, aren't some of these numbers off for the amount of hops listed?
4- I have seen a lot of info saying that the grains are off and Troegs actually uses 80% vienna. Has anyone adjusted this on this recipe.
5- Final question- Why am i enjoying-Dicks Danger Ale?

Step by Step
Steep the crushed grain in 2 gallons (7.6 L) of water at 152 F (66.6 C) for 30 minutes. Remove grains from the wort and rinse with 2 quarts (1.8 L) of hot water. Add the liquid and dried malt extracts and boil for 90 minutes. Add the hops, Irish moss and yeast nutrient as per the schedule. Add the wort to 2 gallons (7.6 L) of cold water in a sanitized fermenter and top off with cold water up to 5 gallons (19 L). Cool the wort to 75 F (24 C). Pitch the yeast and aerate the wort heavily. Allow the beer to cool to 68 F (20 C). Hold at that temperature until fermentation is complete. Transfer to a carboy, avoiding any splashing to prevent aerating the beer and add the Columbus, Nugget and Simcoe dry hops. Condition for one week and then bottle or keg. Carbonate and age for two weeks.

The boil length won't matter as much for an extract version. I would just do 60. The most important thing to do is a full volume boil with accurate water volume measurements and boiloff predictions.

A lot of those malts you referenced should really be mashed. I dont see harm in using mostly extract with 8-10% sugar, 3-4% Melanoidin and 3-4% Crystal for the entire grist. Don't worry about the pils, vienna, and munich.

I would use Extra Light and Pilsener DME. Not LME. That will allow you to skip using real pils. An equal amount of DME (vs. LME) will give you more gravity, so make the proper adjustments.

Steep the grain in 150-165 F water. The volume doesn't matter. Then remove and bring to a boil. Proceed as usual. Do a full volume boil and add 1/3 to 1/2 of the DME late in the boil along with the sugar. You won't need irish moss for extract beers. Cool to 65 and shake the hell out of the wort before you pitch the yeast. Keep at 65-67 for 3-4 weeks including the dryhop, then rack, prime and bottle for 2-3 weeks at room temp.

Brewsncrabs,
I live in Etown, pa so I'm pretty close too.
Just a few questions. For your hop amounts, did you adjust the amounts per the AA percents that you could buy at that time to get those weights in Oz.?
Just curious how you got to those amounts.
Thanks for the advice.
Also, how long did you dry hop?

I was thinking about trying this as well as a couple other BYO recipes. I am only going on two years of brewing, so maybe some of you can answer this for me. All of the BYO recipe instructions say to:

Remove grains from the wort and rinse with 2 quarts (1.8 L) of hot water.

What exactly does this mean? Do you then take the water that you used to rinse the grains and pour that into the wart? I have not seen this step in any of the instructions that have come with my recipe kits, it usually just says to remove the grains and let it drip into the wart but do not squeeze.

Thanks for your help.

Dave
