At least I assume it is due to the name and it being in the belgian strong ale section. Golden Monkey I believe is considered to be a tripel
I don't know if you would really consider it a clone at this point:

"I actually got this recipe a couple years ago on a different forum, which will remain nameless I tweaked it some to account for my tastes, and here it is:
BTW Yes it has some corn in it, but don't leave it out!!!"

The corn methinks would be a detour right there.


This might be the more the ticket:

And since nobody's mentioned it yet, converting an AG recipe to extract isn't generally very hard. Especially in this case, where the recipe is mainly a large amount of pils malt (replace with extra light malt extract to get the same OG) and very small amounts of specialty grains (probably suitable for simple steeping)

Thanks! I'm just an ignorant extract noob and haven't delved into things relating to AG much.


Edit: Aaaaaand I just found the convert recipe option in beersmith, I am an idiot.

Nothing wrong with that. My only reason to talk you out of it would be the price. Extract is so expensive and Golden Money is so strong, that you'd spend a lot on the ingredients. It would take a good amount of extract to get that 9.5% ABV...
