Ok

Yet again replying to the dead thread that only I am posting in anymore??

I made the brew. WOW! Its not carbed up yet, and this was a hydrometer sample from the pre-keg, post-secondary beer. WOW! It flipped a switch and I was in Ireland for a moment! I think its SPOT ON!

I will post my recipe soon but its basically whats in this thread (for Beamish).
Can't wait to try it on the nitro tap, cold, and carbed!

Thanks for the help, and YES PacMan seems to be great! my FG readings I think I do not trust (1.013) but even still, it is highly drinkable and tastes (from my 2-1/2 year memory) nearly exact to Beamish drafts....

Wow, old thread... hey, glad to hear your Beamish clone is coming along well! While it might be impossible to 'truly' clone Beamish, we can get pretty close, and that's good enough for me.

I'll be brewing another one sometime this spring, I figure I'll go back to the original recipe (no chocolate malt) and see if I can get a similar roast character with just using RB. Sucks I won't be able to compare it to the real thing though.

It is tough to compare with a side by side tasting, and going only on memory,


Not at my main PC now, so I can't give you %, but here was my grist for 11g -target for two full cornys
Maris otter 13lb9.7oz
White wheat malt 1lb11.9oz
Roast barley 1lb3.5oz (I used the "English" roasted b from northern brewer, L given only as a range.
Chocolate malt 14oz
Crystal80 8oz
I used pacman in a starter, one smack pack was a bit funny, arrived already smacked! I made a starter, hit 1.043 target OG, but measured from one carboy, I got 1.013 FG. Might be from the dissolved CO2... Dunno. Seems to be a great recipe. The subtle finishing hops are refreshing change up from Drinking Guinness.

I don't anticipate this lasting very long.

Thought I'd put in my experience so far with this recipe ! I started a 5 gallon batch of this on Sunday. The wort tasted really good, can't wait for the finished thing! Thanks to you and bierhaus15 for the recipe & experiences!!
I was able to find a smack pack of Pacman & it definitely lives up to it's reputation, started really quick & was going strong until this afternoon & now it's starting to settle out already. Definitely going to recover as much of it as I can for other brews.

I'll update after I'm able to try it.

Thanks again!!!

Mike

Great!

So since I originally hijacked this thread to a Beamish Clone thread, did you brew the Beamish or the Murphy's ??

My second stab at the Beamish is SPOT ON, as best my taste buds and memory can recall. The first attempt, I used a coffee grinder to crush the roasted malts and it clogged my recirculation mash and ended up scorched to a minimal degree (not enough to prevent drinking it). Wouldve ruined a lighter beer but a stout was able to soak it up and I was lucky I cought it FAST before it TOTALLY ruined the brew.


Love the Beamish.

Oops, forgot this was a Murphy's thread! I used the recipe in your last post, just cut in half. Glad your scorched batch was still OK!

Well, I couldn't wait any longer so I cracked one open tonight. It is WONDERFUL! Thank you both for this recipe!!! I think it's my favorite that I've brewed so far. Here's a quick pic of it.
