Default Cigar City maduro oatmeal brown clone attempt

I am Floridan and there is a brewery in tampa that makes awesome beer, but does not distribute to my area yet. So i am attempting to clone their delicious brown ale. It has been quite a while since I have had it. Any and all sugestions are welcome. Btw the info for Cigar city's maduro is 5.5% abv 25 ibu 1.057 og 24 srm

Grains:

maris otter- 8 lb srm:3
Bairds carastan- 1.75 lb srm: 40
Flaked oats (tosted)- 1 lb srm:1
Pale chocolate- 1 lb srm: 200

Hops
Cascade 60 min aprox 6%
Willamette 10 min aprox 5%

Yeast
S-04

This recipe just about matches their numbers. If anyone has had success with a maduro clone or has any in put let me know. i should be able to brew this in the next couple weeks, and i will update with any recipe changes or results.

*drool* I go to the tasting room quite often. Love CCB! Tampa Bay Brewing Co has an amazing barley wine, Moosekiller, and a hefe, Wild Warthog, that I would love to clone too.

Are you part of a club? I have been thinking about joining one lately. I am in Tampa.

Edit** Just realized you aren't from the area if you don't get it distributed. Don't mind me. Had a few drinks

Those browns from Cigar City are fantastic. If you find a good match certainly let us know.

Any updates on how this turned out? I'm crafting a recipe right now based on some information I got from Wayne, the brewer at Cigar City. I'll post my attempt here once I get everything fleshed out, or I could start another thread...

Sorry for the delay, i went through a move and being busy in general so my brew was pushed back. I enjoy this beer it isnt exactly like maduro, but it gets what you want from an oatmeal brown. Silky, creamy, fuller texture with a smooth finish. mine did not ferment down as far as i had hopped, possible because of the large amount of caramel malt and oatmeal so increasing the base malt by a pound or so might get better result. I think this is a good jumping off point. I think i read somewhere that Cigar City likes using Special B malt, but not sure if any is in this particular beer.

I know this is an old thread but thought I'd add that I'm 99% sure CCB uses Thames Valley yeast for Maduro.
