The one on the left is the clone. I finally tasted them back to back. As you can see from the photo, the clone is a little lighter. As far as flavor goes though, they're almost dead on. Way to go Mustangj. I'm enjoying this one very much.

I saw this recipe months ago and was tempted to double it and make Double Crooked Tree. My father in-law and I absolutely love that beer and it would be great to have some on tap. I think I may have to give it a go!

I didn't realise there was that much difference in color!

Glad you like it though

The picture is a little deceiving because of the low light in the room. The color of the clone is very much like the one you posted above. The original is darker, but I don't think quite as dark as it appears in the picture.

I would love to try an extract DCT. Was thinking of using a HopShot for the bittering portion to reduce the physical presence of the hops

I'm thinking of doing this as well for a trip to Disney with the kid and another couple/kids that like drinking beer! (kids don't drink LOL)

I'm a partial mash guy so AG I can't do nor am I set up for it.

Is that what the only thing you'd change? Aslo have you brew'd yet?

Thanks in advance!!!

Might be a newbie question, but this sits in secondary for 14 days. Did you dry hop the Centennial just for the last seven days or did you dry hop for the entire 14? Thanks! Hoping to make this one in the next few days.

I dry hopped it for 14 days. It will mellow over time.

I'm curious...Your IBUs in the recipe are at 47.76, but I'm calculating half that, with your hop schedule.
Did I miss something?

Sorry to bring up an old post, but I'm trying DCT, this weekend & am hoping to nail it.

Your right... I can't remember how I got 47.

I've followed this recipe and it turns out great everytime.
