A Bad Influence

Random dudes walking down the street with a boom box offered me a beer, while I was waiting for door dash. Guess I'm living the high life, tonight
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.I'd be interested in your recipe, if it stacks up.
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.Looks great. Curious to see what your DH schedule was like.

Do as Jim Koch, Boston Brewery, does and add some yeast to the water. Why? Drink more beer.Drank two of my 1L mugs of beer without any second thoughts. Decided to slow down a bit and filled the mug with water. Sure seems like a lot of water to try and drink in one sitting.
