I tried to do one myself awhile back (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum/sh...ghlight=Monde). It turned nothing like Fin, but still tasted great – more like a darker, more flavorful version of Hacker Pschorr. I very loosely based my recipe on the
Blanche De Chambly recipe here: http://byo.com/feature/277.html

I bought a case of Fin du Monde recently and it got me interested in brewing again. I do have a clone recipe for it in one of my books, and I'll dig it out if you are interested after reading this: It uses cane sugar instead of the standard ingredients. It also ends up 9-10% alcohol, which is pretty steep.

If we are talking about the same product, it comes from Canada, and is in 22 oz bottles with a cork and wire stopper, is that the stuff??

I liked it early on, but now it seems too sweet. It's nice to tell my wife I'll only have "one bottle of beer" and at 22 oz and 10% I just don't need anymore! Nice buzz before dinner. . .

What you give up is the fuller flavor of a good ale.

Let me know and I'll get the recipe for you.

Hey Fred, any chance we could get that La Fin du Monde clone recipe? I love that beer, and I would really appreciate a good recipe, as I haven't had any luck finding one on the forum (or anywhere else, for that matter.) Thanks in advance!

I am happy to say I accidentally brewed a beer which is surprisingly close to La Fin. It's a Honey Weizenbock. I've since modified the recipe and I think what follows should be surprisingly close to La Fin... The only caveat I have is that I don't know what to do with the hops. I used Hallertau in my Weizenbock, but that's clearly wrong for the La Fin. Maybe try 2 ounces of Strisselspalt split at 60, 30, 15 and 1? I've never used Stresselspalt though, so that's just a guess...

Fermentables:
2 lbs wildflower honey (added to primary)
8 lbs belgian pils
3 lbs belgian wheat
1 lbs honey malt
0.25 to 1.0 lbs of something "biscuit-like"
0.25 lbs belgian aromatic
0.25 oz bitter orange peel @10

WLP 300 Hefeweizen yeast.
No secondary, let it sit in primary for at least a month



Right now I am drinking my Weizenbock and a La Fin side by side... The only thing I'm missing is the aroma, the cloviness, and my beer is much softer... maybe it needs some brett or something, and definitely a slight biscuit character... And I was fermenting at 77. I think upper-60's will get you even closer to La Fin.

The second recipe isn't too far off from mine, actually....

But they suggest Goldings. I don't think Styrian goldings are right....

Of course, they don't tell you what is in the kits, so there's no possibility of tweaking it. Totally useless, IMHO. I won't buy a kit if they won't tell me the recipe.
