I actually emailed Manny's brewery the other day and asked them what yeast they use. One of their reps responded within a few hours and said it is wyeast 1275 Thames Valley. I haven't tried it yet, but am anxious to get a clone going. The rep also said she could provide me with anything else needed about the recipe. It seemed like they'd give full disclosure if you ask.

excellent! I'll have to do a batch of this soon. I'd still like to hear from anyone who has attempted to clone this and had a chance to compare to the original...

Hey guys,

I work at Georgetown Brewing Co. and am the rep mentioned earlier in this thread. We are happy to help answer any questions you have about us or our beer. I can be reached at [email protected].

Cheers,
Lisa

okay, I just had some email correspondence with Lisa from the Georgetown Brewery (see above post). She has given me the thumbs up to share this info:

"Thanks for the email! Our theory is to give home brewers all the ingredients we use, but leave the rest up to them as a way to challenge you to come up with a Manny's Clone. That said I'll tell you as much as I know. We use Summit hops for bittering and Cascade hops for aroma. We do dry hop with the Cascade. The Malts are 2-row, Caramel and Carapils. No clarifying agents are used, it's a cloudy beer, abv = 5.3. Wyeast 1275 Thames Valley is the closest commercial yeast to ours."

I'm so looking forward to trying this. The Georgetown Brewery puts out some excellent beers and their staff is VERY helpful. If any of you are local, I strongly advise you to pick up a couple growlers from these guys! Thanks again for the help Lisa.

okay, I put together an extract recipe based on the info I've gathered. I had to modify it a bit though as I couldn't get Summit hops. I used Magnum instead (oddly enough, the Georgetown Brewery's website says they use Magnum for Manny's). This is what I just put in the primary:

Manny's Pale Ale clone
American Pale Ale

Batch Size: 5.00 gal
Est Original Gravity: 1.058 SG
Measured Original Gravity: 1.010 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.014 SG Measured Final Gravity: 1.005 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 5.6 % Actual Alcohol by Vol: 0.6 %
Bitterness: 37.2 IBU Calories: 43 cal/pint
Est Color: 7.2 SRM

Amount Item Type % or IBU
7.75 lb Pilsner Liquid Extract (3.5 SRM) Extract 79.5 %
1.00 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 10.3 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 10.3 %
0.65 oz Magnum [14.00%] (60 min) Hops 31.2 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [5.50%] (15 min) Hops 4.7 IBU
0.25 oz Cascade [5.50%] (5 min) Hops 0.9 IBU

1.00 oz Cascade [5.50%] (Dry Hop 4 days) Hops -
1 Pkgs Thames Valley Ale (Wyeast Labs #1275) Yeast-Ale

We'll see how she turns out. Thanks again Lisa!

Is there a reason you're using Pilsner LME? I've never used it, but isn't that a bit light? I'm very curious about how this turns out!

Pilsner LME is the lightest of the LMEs, so all your color and character comes from the specialty grain just like when you are brewing with all grain. If you are an extract with grains brewer you should make every beer with Pilsner LME as the base, imo.

agreed. The darkest I'll go with LME is "light/golden". The flavor should be in the steeped grains. BTW, it's looking great. I have it dry hopping away in my secondary (I thought about doing it all in the primary since Manny's is cloudy anyway, but I wanted to harvest my yeast more easily from my primary). I'll keep you posted and, hopefully, get some comparison pics up when done.

Here are some pics...

Thanks again to Lisa at the Georgetown Brewery

and the dry hopping...


it turned out a bit darker than expected based on BeerSmith, so I may ease up on the Crystal next go round. I hope it tastes as good as it looks

Mooseknuckle, how did the taste turn out? Thanks. I brewed a recipe last year from the AG recipe earlier in the thread.
