Angry Amber - Maine Brewing Company Zoe Clone
« on: September 16, 2014, 08:29:59 PM »
Here's a Zoe clone I brewed about a month or so ago. I was very happy with the results, my only change for next time would be increasing the dry hops by 50%. I found the recipe on a brewing blog by a local guy in Fredericton. I've tried a few of his beer and they have all impressed me. His blog is informative and recipes are all in great detail, I'll post a link below in case anyone wants to check it out.

He's helped you out virtually? Have you've met him in person?

I brewed a Rising Tide Daymark clone from Meeks's recipes and I think I liked it better than my last batch of the real deal  ;)

The Angry Amber looks great, by the way.  I'm going to put it on my to-brew list.
