It's bottled and aging - I'm entering it in a competition in mid-february...

I've tasted it ~1.5 weeks into the bottle and it's pretty close to Big Sky. It's a little bit drier, which IMO is good.

I'm hoping to do a side-by-side comparison during the Super Bowl with a bunch of friends and will post back...

Noob here-First time post-

Made AHS Moose Drool Mini Mash Kit yesterday-Hoping it will turn out well, this beer is the reason I have started brewing, but after tasting my first batch of a clone of one of my local ales-Highland Gaelic Ale yesterday while brewing the Moose Drool, I will definitely keep at it!

Anybody got an extract or partial mash version of this recipe-The AHS kit is definitely different in the hops-1 oz. Goldings for 60 mins., and 1/2 oz Glacier and 1/2 oz Mt. Hood for the last 15 mins., At work and can't remember the grain bill right now, but that looks pretty similar.

Thanks

Interested to see how this clone recipe turns out. I've not had the pleasure but my bro lived in Idaho for 3 years and will not shut up about this beer. If your recipe is accurate i can most likely get him to buy the ingredients, or at least go halves and I'll slipt it with him and teach him to brew. But he's either got to pay for the whole recipe, or pay half and help brew it. Maybe this will be my next brew.

That looks just like the one they just talked about on Jamil's new show "Can You Brew It." I just listened to it today and they brewed this recipe and blind taste tested it against the actual Moose Drool and all 3 guys picked the homebrew as the Moose Drool.

Of course, Jamil brewed it, probably on some setup that makes the rest of ours look like a booger, but still it seems the recipe must be solid.

I listened to Jamil's show the other day on Moose Drool it didn't sound that hard to make, Jamil said that he was bbq'n and didn't really pay attention to brewing that day and still made a dead close clone to the original.

Just listened to the first "Can you brew it" on Moose Drool. Sounds like one I may have to brew up soon!

Moose Drool is one of the beers that gets me by without Fat Tire. They sell Moose Drool here... no Fat Tire.

FFS, I found Fat Tire in Okinawa! Stupid distributors
