Default Anyone have a Terrapin Big Hoppy Monster recipe

I love this beer and can't get it in my home state. Does anyone have an AG recipe to make it?

I picked up a growler from Hop City in Birmingham AL. Love this stuff, and am very interested in a recipe, any ideas out there?

I emailed Terrapin a while back and they told me that the only help they could give was that what is used is on their website listed from greatest usage to least....... heres what was on the website 2 row, munich, crystal 20, crystal 30, crystal 45, crystal 77.. hops warrior, centennial, cascade, ahtanum... dry hop simcoe..... I guess its a starting point

They told me the same thing. They also told me that at some point in the future, they were going to release their recipes for home brewers, but could not tell me when.

I put together a recipe using those ingredients in beer Tools Pro, and did quantities to get close to the specs for the beer, but have not brewed it yet so I don't know if I am close with amounts/flavoring/color. here is what I got.

OG 1.095
SRM 24
IBU 82
9.42%ABV

10lbs pale malt
2lbs Munich
2lbs Cyrstal 20
2lbs Crystal 20
2lbs Cyrstal 45
2lbs Crystal 77
.65oz warrior 60 min
.75oz Centennial 45 min
.75 Cascade 30 min
.75 oz Ahtanum 15 min
1oz Simcoe dry hop.

I am not good with predicting recipes, so if anyone else can let me know if they think this will get close, I would adjust and when I brew it, post results.

Since with that grain u will probably end up at FG 1.02-1.024 that being the case, i would add 2 oz more of warrior at start of boil to overcome the sweetness. Maybe try and mash at 150 or less.But besides that i think u hit it pretty dead on.

sounds tasty, M still waiting for pipeworks recipes. Their beers are totally awesome. Still have no clue how to clone these beers, but if someone could get a hold of the recipe it would be much appreciated.

I also sent them a message on FB about it with no answer. Oh well!

1.024 is the calculated FG. This beer is very malty and almost sweet, so I wasn't sure if adding more in the beginning would take away from that. Warrior is 16% AA. I was afraid that adding that much more hops early on would hide the super malty and sweetness? I think the name of this beer is very misleading, but it is so delicious.

Did you use 2oz in your recipe? How did it turn out?
