I know the recipe BeerCanuck posted is tried and true ot the original. There are several recipes floating around the Internet for 90 minute as well. The recipe seems similar, just bigger.

I have not seen any recipes for Old Skool though. I bought a 4 pack, and wasnt terribly impressed. Im going to reserve judgement until I try again in 12 months. It had a similar taste to 120 minute IPA. Almost malt & hops schnapps or something. I am hoping it was just young.
