Does any one here know of a good clone recipe for Magic Hat #9? I know i can order it from some home brew shops, but before i do that i just wanted to see what's our there. Thanks
One recommendation I have is to start with a small amount of the apricot extract in the secondary, then taste and add more until you get the flavor you're going for. It's pretty flavor-forward and can overpower some of the more subtle flavors in the brew.

Oh, and I used cal ale, not ringwood.
austin homebrew offers a magic hat #9 clone. haven't tried it but I really like that beer... Good luck.
