Does anyone know what Lagunitas( Petaluma, CA) puts in their Imperial Red Ale or have a clone recipe for this tasty brew. I just had a pint and would love to have 5 gal. of this on tap. Any info appr. Extract or mash-Extract either one.
Just brewed a double batch that is kinda close to this. We will see how it turns out.

Very curious about that myself. I know that they sometimes use Brown Sugar, but they cannot use that much in this recipe. I'm also assuming that a little bit of Crystal 120?Yeah the Imperial Red is impressive. I am not sure how they get that sweet candy taste in some of their beers.
I don't think that is going to happen. According to the tour guide at Lagunitas, the imperial red will no longer be made. Apparently didn't sell well. It's a shameTheJosephizer said:As soon as I can get my hands on some I will give it a shot. My homebrew club is doing "clone contest" and I would love to get this one. Maybe a 90 min boil will get that sweet caramel finish.. More to follow.
they must still be making it, bought one today in NW wisconsin. drinking it as i type pondering my own recipes for similar styles and flavors.I don't think that is going to happen.
