Ok so bells has everyone by the balls with their seasonal beers that make you want them all them. Anyone attempted making a clone of this bad boy and/or with success? I imagine no matter how you do it will be expensive but sure less expensive then $25 a 6 pack!

If you look around people have attempted recipes, contacted Bells via email, and then tweaked them off of some pretty helpful advice from the brewery. Check one of those out

I wish, I'm looking for one myself. It is truly a fantastic beer.

There is a good thread already on here about it. My question is how long would something like this take to bottle condition? I have a tripel that needs another 6 months in the bottle and I absolutely couldn't do that again right now

i'd go 30-40 days from brew to bottle. i have a similar big IPA and that's what I do. I've done 3 versions of it and all have tasted awesome at that point.

So it must just depend on the style of beer more than the gravity?
