Recipe help
« on: January 27, 2019, 09:00:55 PM »
Hey,

Iím looking for a little guidance cloning a couple local beers, Iím not good at identifying whatís in a beer.  I kinda feel guilty trying to copy local beers, but Iíd love to try making something similar to either beer.

 Two of my favourite beers right now are gray stones Patagonia pale ale and grimrossís maritime pale ale. Any tips on what either beer uses would be greatly appreciated. I havenít reached out to either brewery, feels kinda weird asking them whatís in there beer so I can make it at home.

Thanks

Give a man a beer and he'll waste an hour, teach him how to brew beer and he'll waste a lifetime.

I'd probably go closer to the first recipe (belgian pale ale) for Maritime Pale Ale. I'm pretty sure he told us what strain he uses for most of his beers but I can't remember what it was. T58 sticks out in my memory but I can't remember for sure, I'm pretty sure it was a dry yeast strain.

Patagonia Pale Ale's recipe is probably very similar with the yeast being the big difference. A simple malt bill thats mostly 2-row with a small amount of either Munich, Vienna or Victory. A combination of either centennial, cascade, columbus or chinook hops added mostly late in the boil and a clean american ale yeast like us-05.

You could be surprised how open some breweries are giving tips, clues or the ingredients of their beers. Some places even put the ingredients on the label
Even if you had the exact ingredient %, water profile and yeast/fermentation profile alone play a huge part in the final beer
Steve is a cool guy. Iím sure he would take it as a compliment and I bet money he would be open sharing some info with you  ;)

Never be afraid to reach out to a brewery. Most brewers don't mind giving you details, some may turn you down but there's no harm in asking. I know Shane from Hammond River will give you very detailed information about his recipes. I think a recipe is secondary to process.

And for what it's worth there's nothing wrong with brewing clones. Especially when you learn from them and then make them your own along the way.
