I have no idea where his has gone, the first one I made to his recipe and thought it was very good.
I wanted to try and get even close, and with a few pointers from the head brewer I made a few changes to this and was very happy that it was almost identical to the draught version.

I brewed this recently and absolutely love it. I kept the same recipe but i did change the fermentation schedule. I did 2 days at 62f then raised it to 68f for a further 5 days.
Racked it to secondary for a further 6 days.
I also primed with 3.5oz of corn sugar.

It's in a comp that's being judged this weekend so will be interesting to see how it fairs.

Good luck with the competition mate, lemme know how it scores. I have not brewed for a few months due to time constraints, but this will be my first brew on my return to the scene.
Have you compared it to the real deal? What do u think compared to the real deal?
I personally this it's damn close

I Just got the competition results back and i'm pretty happy how it went.
No medals or placings however it made it into the final round for best in show and scored a respectable 35.5

I did get a feeling that the judges didn't respect the style enough and asked for a lot more nutty taste in the flavor. If they only knew it was a clone from an actual bjcp recommended beer to style.

I'm in Portland Oregon now and have not managed to find a bottle to compare it to the real deal, however i've drunk a fair amount of it in my youth back in England and can vouch this recipe is really close to the original. I took it to my club meet last week and got rave reviews back on it. I am going to continue brewing this regularly.

If you like English brown's give it a try you won't be disappointed.
