Brewed this about 2 months ago but I did cut the honey malt in half. I had tried a Fire Rock right before brewing as it had been a while since I had it but recalled liking it. It was a bit too sweet on the finish for me which is why I reduced the honey malt. The beer turned out great and has been a hit with everyone I have given bottles to. I think I may cut out the honey malt completely on the next one and increase the Centennial dry-hop. Won't really be a Kona clone at that point but oh well......

I put a 2 week old, 5G batch of this on gas last Sunday before leaving on a business trip. Sampled it last night and was very impressed. My wife and BIL had a taste and both said this may be the best one yet for their tastes. I am going to have to hide this one from the company coming over tonight so it can age a couple more weeks, I am going to be stingy. They can drink the Belgian Wit and sample the 2 Hearted clone, this one's all for me. Reminds me, I have six taps but only 3 beers to flow out of em. I think kegs are like celebrities, when one dies, two more will quickly follow. Time to repair that busted pipeline now that 2nd quarter results are in and my wings are clipped for awhile.

Thanks for sharing BM and without this site I would probably be knee deep in a case of Natty light right now

BierMuncher, thanks for posting this. Fire Rock is in my top three favorites. I have never brewed before but finding this has me committed to learning.

I am going to visit a home brew shop next week and dive in. Hopefully this recipe isn't too complex for a beginner. Thanks again.

Just curious, what was the cost of the ingredients for this recipe?

I like mine (BierMuncher's) way better. Kona's tastes like it's feremented too warm. Slight fusels and funky off flavors.

I notice you don't have the Cara-Pils/Dextrine in the Partial Mash recipe ... since thats used for body and head retention, shouldn't it still be used? I'm a total newbie to PM brewing so please excuse if the answer is obvious

I kegged mine this weekend, stuck to the PM recipe except I had to use Simcoe for dry hopping, was all my LHBS had on hand in leaf/plug form.

The beer tastes like orange tang with an mild earthy hop finish, seriously .... I don't know where I went wrong. Of course it was warm and flat, hopefully carb and cool will help it out ... otherwise I may have to drink this for breakfast, its that orangy ...

The DME will have carapils in it.

Old post but I was just reading looking for my next batch to brew.
