Ok, I'm going from a partial mash recipe converted to Extract. This is the AHS clone.


10.5 lbs Amber LME
1.5 lbs Crystal 120L (Steep at around 155 for half hour or so)

2.5 oz Chinook @ 60
.75 oz Chinook @15
.75 oz Chinook @ 5

Yeast: White Labs California Ale V 051 or Nottingham Ale Dry Yeast
Hope this helps.

I've heard very good things about Austin Homebrew Supply's clone kits. Here's their Arrogant Bastard: http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...oducts_id=1096

I'd recommend ponying for Wyeast liquid yeast. It's great stuff.


EDIT: It's on sale!
Double edit: White Labs California Ale V is also good, but I like the Activator pack. I think it gives a higher pitching rate.

Oh yeah..

OG = 1.074
FG = 1.018

I would age this a bit longer than normal since it's a pretty big brew.

How much water would you add to that brew? What's the final volume? I got that same recipe from Forrest from AHB, but he didn't say how much water to add, so I used 22 litres. my OG was a bit low at 1.055, but I don't know if it is because I diluted the wort too much, or what else may have caused it...

Shouldn't you add enough water to make it around 20 liters like a normal batch? Did you do a full boil?

I have heard that the Brewers Best California Pale Ale is supposed to approximate Arrogant Bastard Ale pretty well. That is what I have going right now (first batch) and looking at the recipe posted, its pretty close to the kit I bought at the LHBS. I improvised and added some more hops in the secondary.

Thoughts so far based on hydrometer test samples... Damn its strong and hoppy! I seem to be stuck at 1.020, same when I racked to secondary and when I tested a week later. When I racked it was almost undrinkable, very strong hop flavor, still very malty. When I tested the other day it was still quite a kick, but mellowing nicely. I am going to (try to) wait another week, maybe 2 before bottling.

First lesson learned in home brewing... be patient. Just so damn hard.

It sure is! And it's even harder with a bigger, "harsher" beer like the AB clone! It seems like the chinook takes a little while to smooth out.

The only cure for inpatience is to make another batch! That helps you forget about the first one.

A "normal" batch for a complete extract brew here is 21.5 - 23 litres, depending on the instructions on the cans. I punted!

Full 1 hour boil of the water that teh grain was steeped in, with all LME added and the hops, then chilled it and put in fermenter with enough cold water to make 22 litres.
