    There is a clone recipe in the current Nov/Dec Zymurgy mag. I really don't feel like typing it all out so if someone knows how to find it online go ahead. If not I will type it out for you this weekend.

    Just wondering if it is truly all malt. 21% ??? It's tough. I still have some from 3 years ago and they are aging interestingly.

    Here is the recipe according to Zymurgy.

    5 U.S. Gallons
    16 lb Pilsner Malt
    .5 lb English Amber Malt 35L
    11 lb Dextrose Sugar (added during fermentation)
    1.38 oz Amarillo pellet hops, 10% alpha acid (continuous hopping) (30.8 IBU)
    1.38 oz Simcoe pellet hops, 13% alpha acid (continuous hopping) (40 IBU)
    1.38 oz Warrior pellet hops, 16% alpha acid (continuous hopping) (49.2 IBU)

    Mix the hops in a container and add about .1 oz of the mixture every 3 minutes.

    1.0 oz Amarillo pellet hops, 10% alpha acid (daily dry hopping)
    1.0 oz Simcoe pellet hops, 13% alpha acid (daily dry hopping)
    1.0 oz Warrior pellet hops, 16% alpha acid (daily dry hopping)

    Mix the hops in a container and add about 0.2 oz of the mixture to the fermenter every day.

    White Labs WLP001 California Ale or Wyeast 1056 American Ale yeast for initial fermentation. For the following fermentation use White Labs WLP099 Super High Gravity Ale.

    Target Original Gravity 1.092 (22 Plato)
    Approximate Final Gravity 1.042 (10.48 Plato after sugar additions)

    Enjoy!

    yeah...but remember, at somewhere between 18 and 23% ABV, it's damn near a six pack in itself!!!

    I've heard of people paying $9-11 per bottle...I'm not complaining too much

    I just bought my beer store's last bottle of the 2003 for $8. I"m kind of regretting it now thinking of all the other good stuff I could have got for that $8 but I'm sure I wont regret it when I'm drinking it. Anybody notice any differences between the different vintages? I had a bottle a year or 2 ago and I thought it needed to age a while so I grabbed the 2003 instead of the 2004.

    I like the 90, but Sherwin Williams was out of that last time I stopped in, too. (And while I like it....$8 for 4 bottles? Not going there often...)

    Well...as atonement for some of our state's many other problems, we have just about the lowest beer tax in the country.

    I found it to be cloyingly sweet. Too much sugar. The hops actctally took a backseat to the sweetness, which made it pretty low on my Hopmeter.

    The most amazing thing about this beer was how well the alcohol was masked. Brilliant.

    But taste? Id rather have a 90min. Its way hoppier.

    Hpster, slow down and savor the flavor...120 minute is much more subtle than the 90 minute.

    I agree with Hpster. 60 is good, 90 is okay, 120 is over the top. I barely get hop flavor and aroma in that beer at all. Just a lot of bitterness, alcohol and sweetness. Blech!
