Just curious, where did you read they used magnum? according to their site, they use Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial and Chinook.

*Edit. Realized that the magnum and such is from a different vintage...my bad

For anyone lookin to produce a clone, the avery site says its made with two-row, Victory and crystal 120L.
