    Yuengling Lager Clone

    Since I rarely have time to brew, I have been spending a lot of my free time formulating recipes for future use. Right now I am working on a Yuengling clone, but I don't know what SRM, IBU and ABV I am trying to match. I built a quick recipe on hopville and ended up with 14 SRM, 30 IBU and 5.9%...

    Recently brewed a Brewer's Best Irish Stout + 1/2 lb coarse ground espresso at flameout. OG 1.053. Pitched 15g Cooper's Ale Yeast (without rehydrating) which was included in the kit.

    Hey all, I want to try out BIAB, so far I have only done a few extract batches. SWMBO wants the next batch to be a #9 clone (I plan on calling it #9.5) so I'm looking for some input on the recipe. From Magic Hat's website: A beer cloaked in secrecy. An ale whose mysterious and unusual...
