I renamed it to make it my own. But it still holds true to ska brewing by naming the recipe after the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Here's my label.

It's pretty similar. The hop schedule is right on. Their is an all grain recipe somewhere on HBT that I got my hop schedule from. Those guys put a lot of research into the hop schedule, even speaking with the brewers at Ska. So I'm pretty sure that is 98% correct.

Interesting, I've been looking for something like this. Any chance you guys can convert it to extract? I'm thinking the bulk in light, a # of crystal, and maybe a # of amber? And can anyone confirm this hop combination? Hops are obviously pretty important in this beer...

Anyone one come up with an extract kit or recipe for this one? I'm new to the game here so knowledge is very limited but have been having good results with my first few kits.

This is one of my favorite beers would love to make it!
Txs,
Matt

Start with your crystal and red wheat steeped like normal, add your malt extract to get your abv., and follow the hop schedule. It will be great beer for sure! I think water chemistry comes into play if you really want a clone, but you can't go wrong with this hop combo!

I just had the pleasure of drinking a Modus Hoperandi in London last week for the first time and I loved it! Have you done any more work on this recipe? Would love to brew up a batch since it's not available here in Switzerland.
