This is my take on the original recipe that was developed to celebrate Ben Franklinís 300th birthday. Mine was brewed on 11 November 07. I will update this as the brew comes along. I used Belgian Candi Syrup in place of molasses just for fun. Plus I had some I needed to use up.
You can find the original recipe here:

It was a very nice drinkable beer. If I ever make it again though, I want it to be a touch maltier. I might add a bit of crystal to the grain bill.

the link no longer points to a PDF, how much different is your recipe from the original? only the candy sugar?

A friend here at work wants me to try my hand at Poor Richard...

Where else can I find the recipe?

Thanks

I honestly can't remember where the original recipe came from. I just remember getting it from the Home Brewer's Association.
