Has anyone tried or is going to try the New Albion Ale clone recipe in BYO magazine? Boston Beer Company is going to re-release a one time offering of this recreation sometime this month. I plan on brewing this recipe next. Seems pretty simple so a new brewer like me should be successful.

I have been trying to find if any of my local stores will carry it. If not I was gonna try making it too.

I think I will brew the clone from BYO soon too. Seems like it would be good for spring time.

The beer blew me away. It's fantastic. If someone does the clone, let us know how close it is.

I brewed a batch Monday using the extract/with grain option. The only extra step I did was to add the remaining hops (.2oz) at the end of the boil. I had 2-1oz packets of hops. Also I used the Wyeast 1028. This is my second brew, the first, Caribou Slobber is nearing 3 weeks in the fermenter and was anxious to start another and this was it. I have not yet found the New Albion Ale in the stores in the Milwaukee, WI area.

The original recipe is a 2-row/Cascade SMASH. What grain does that recipe tell you to steep?

That's exactly what I was going to ask

Extract with grains option:
*Reduce the amount of 2-row malt to 2.0 lbs. (0.91 kg)
*Add 5. 0 lbs. (2.3 kg) of light dried malt extract.
