Anyone have an idea of what to throw together to make a 5 gallon extract batch to match the XI Anniversary from stone? They describe it as a Black IPA... perhaps some of the mosre seasoned brewers on the site have tried it?

I think i'm gonna make this after my upcoming Kolsch, but need to judge the costs of ingredients.

Lemme know what you all think!

i got this in a recent swap...it was AWESOME! I saw it described on beer advocate as an "American Strong Ale"...it was roasty, hoppy and malty, but all very balanced...great brew.

i would also like to try this style! any ideas?

On other brewers' ideas, I was thinking about reducing the crystal and bumping up the carafa in this recipe to do just what you were talking about. I was also thinking about replacing some or all of the Cascades with Ahtanum, since I understand that Stone likes that hop.

we'll certainly have to bump up the gravity as well...it's 8.7% alcohol

i think it would need a nice malty backbone...maybe some maris otter with munich or vienna malt and a high mash temp...nice, subtle roasted/coffee flavors (but not too powerful, maybe small amounts of roasted barley and british chocolate) and some hoppiness to balance it all out. Ahtanum and cascade sound good to me...if that's what they use (i've never tried Ahtanum)

hopefully some more experienced recipe forgers will chime in, cuz i would love to brew something in this style that works!

EDIT: I think i'll also have to find another bottle to know what i'm looking for!

This is what I got directly from Stone Brewery about a month ago. Have not brewed it up yet, but will very soon. XI is by far one of my top favorites.

Stone 11th Anniversary Ale Recipe

Grain Bill:

90% pale malt

5% 60L Crystal

5% Weyermann Carafa III Special


OG target is 20.5P (1.082 SG) Terminal Gravity target is 4P (1.016 SG)


Hops:

Bittering at start of boil: 100% Chinook

Flavor hops added at end of boil or whirlpool: 50/50 blend of Simcoe and Amarillo

Target 120 IBUs.

Ferment with good ale yeast. We used our house yeast.

Dry-Hop with 50/50 blend of Simcoe and Amarillo, use LOTS! (we used 1 pounds per barrel).

Good luck and enjoy. Post up if you brew it, let us know how it is.

Shoulda figured the Chinook and Amarillo... used that in a Ruination clone a while ago + some magnums. And I guess Wyeast 1056 would be the winner for the yeast on this one.

So stone is pretty good about giving out recipes for their brews? I've heard tell that they wont even let out what hops are in Arrogant, so I wasn't sure if talking to them about this would work.

Thanks a bunch man!
