We tried a Left Hand Brewery's Saw Tooth Ale. It was great- great bitterness without being too hoppy for those weaklings (like us) who aren't hopheads. Can anyone who has tried this brew help with a clone recipe? Many thanks,

Haha- not my first but it was very early in my brewing apparently, as back then I was a non-hophead!

I don't remember making a Sawtooth clone, but I can check some of my old notes and see if I did.

Our house session beer is a Fat Tire Clone. It's an amber ale with mild flavors, good smoothness, not too hoppy. I don't have it on my computer, but I can type it out if you're interested.

My husband's favorite beer is this one:

Left hand Sawtooth Ale

-Yeast: 1098 British - WYeast

Grain Bill:
1lb 40L Crystal
1/2 lb Victory (toasted)
3lbs Pale Extract
3lbs Munich Extract

Hop Bill:
1.5 oz Fuggle (60 min boil)
1.5 oz Golding (15 min boil)
1 oz Golding (end of boil)

Mash Schedule:
Steep grains in water 15-20 minutes at about 120-180 degrees.
Remove and add malt extracts.
Bring to boil. Follow hop schedule.

Let cool to under 80 degrees and pitch yeast. Aerate well! Use the 1-2-3 method.
Other yeast you could use are: Safale s-04 dry yeast, or any British strain. I like the Safale.



If you let me know what type of beer you are looking for, that would help. I have lots of recipes that take 5 weeks to be drinkable. I don't like wheat beers, fruit beers, or hefes, so the others will have to help you out there!
