I ended up using dry yeast... and my clone came out very boring.
Wahoo Wheat said:I've made three batches from BYO's 150 Best Clone's recipe and they've all turned out great...... The recipe is very similar to the one above.
sirsloop said:I'd just make sure you are using Perle bittering, Cascade aroma, and WLP001 California ale or Wyeast 1056 yeast...
Chimone said:Actually I would bitter with Magnums, then do a perle/cascade combo
and lots of 60L maybe even over a lb for 5 gallons
just my .02
sirsloop said:They don't make dry belgian yeast... so if you tried making a belgian wit using Nottinghams you would be like WTF??! BUT, We are talking a standard american ale... Safale US-05 would work too.
sirsloop said:IDk... depends on the yeast you're talking about. They don't make dry belgian yeast... so if you tried making a belgian wit using Nottinghams you would be like WTF??! BUT, We are talking a standard american ale... Safale US-05 would work too. I've never done a side by side comparison between them so IDK. I've used us05 before and it tasted good. The liquid version may be better?

Pugilist said:Input has been great guys, was going to do a mix and match of some of the listed recipes and substitutions ya'll recommended.
Only problem is AHS is out of cascade and perle hops, and NB is out of perle
Going to be tough with this hop shortage to find some of the most in demand hops. Blasted oil companies and their Ethynol !
