I'd be interested in your recipe, if it stacks up.
I brewed it to the recipe in Jeff Alworth's book, attributed to an interview with the owner. I think mine to be a very fine beer, but it's not a clone. A fair approximation. Next time, I plan on trying a few ounces of oak in primary to simulate their wooden fermentation tanks. In the fridge for as soon as it's cool enough in the basement, I've got a pint of Imperial Tartan ready to go. First batch was with 1084 Irish Ale, adding some pleasant if not appropriate fruity aroma. With 98% Crisp Maris Otter I think it plenty malty/caramel-y enough without an extended boil reduction as other clone recipes call for.

Looks great. Curious to see what your DH schedule was like. Assuming its prob like 2:1 Amarillo and Galaxy so that Galaxy doesn't totally drown out the other flavors?
I was actually quite heavy handed with the galaxy. Only 3 gallon batch, but 4oz galaxy & 1 oz Amarillo post-ferm dry hop. Base malt, carafoam, & honey malt only — ala coachsending. Zero harshness following 36 hr dry hop. The zero high-protein adjunct with galaxy theory is looking good.

Pretty dang good. Hoping the festival wouldnt be a sh*t show. Always easy for a pickup and parking not bad but a little too crowded for me. Huge tent and Cornhole tournament to the left. U turn.

Altho during the U turn I saw what was meant by a $16 pour into the larger stein. I'm crying now as I would go college days and down it in a second and enjoy it. Wishing I got more
