I find that is usually the case. Most clones i'v done have not come out like a spitting image of the real deal, but very very close. So that minute difference is a new twist in a beer you already enjoy...solbergg said:
I had YooperBrew's Rogue Dead Guy Clone and thought it was much better than the original in a side by side tasting. Yooper's was a bit drier than the commercial version which I prefer.Originally posted by solbergg
Has anyone found that by homebrewing a clone it actually tasted better than it's commercial equivalent?
Of course! Just like fresh steak tastes better than steak that's been in a freezer for 6 months... or fresh vegetables taste better than the ones stored in a can for a few years...solbergg said:
Lots of reasons:solbergg said:I'm having a hard time understanding why people want to reproduce what can be readily bought at your local retailer. I'm not trying to shun clone brewers, I'm honestly curious what the purpose is. Please enlighten.
