Does anyone have a recipe for this nectar of the gods? I had a bottle last weekend and fell in love with it. I've got to make a batch. Any help is appreciated.

Interesting there's no amber or brown malt. I'd figure there'd be a lot of that in there given how it tastes. Any thoughts on that?

It's probably a dark crystal? 120 or 140? Dunno, I've never had the beer.

"Pale Malt (mix of Pipkin, Maris Otter and Halcyon), crystal and amber malt. Goldings hops."


Just a guess at the grist for a 6 gallon batch:

SG = 1.065

English Pale base malt
1lb crystal 80
.5lb crystal 120
.5lb amber

Nectar of the gods indeed. After reading this I went to the fridge because I always try to keep it in stock, but to my dismay, I am out. I am making my first 1845 clone next using the following recipe for 5.5 gallons:

9.5 lbs Maris Otter or Golden Promise (Alexis and Chariot if you can find it)
1.0 lb Aromatic Malt
0.5 lb Amber Malt (sub Biscuit Malt if you can't get it)
0.5 lbs Crystal 60
0.5 lbs Special B

1.5 oz EK Goldings 90 min (4.75%AA)
0.5 oz EK Goldings 20 min (4.75%AA)

WLP002 yeast (nice low attenuation and highly flocculant)

Mash at 156F with 3.5 gallons of water. SG 1.061. 7-10 days in primary at 65F, 2-3 weeks in seconday at 65F. FG 1.019.

This should be aged for at least 4 months at cellar temperatures, more would be better. The authentic ingredients are Alexis Pale Malt, Chariot Pale Malt, Crystal Malt, and Amber Malt. I added Aromatic for the extra maltiness and Special B since it gives that dried fruit, wine-like flavor better than Crystal 120.

Let me know what you use for ingredients and how it turns out.

Not a lot, probably a BU/GU ratio of .75. It's not terribly bitter. It's very malty though, with some sweetness. I love it. Must have more.

can't vouch for the recipe in my post. It's not one of mine and I've never brewed it.

has anyone nailed an 1845 clone? Has anyone brewed the above recipe? As expected, this recipe seems highly guarded.
