To me it looked like Hops Kill Nazis (only recipe which asks for 2.5 kg of caramalt) and 5am Saint.

Sorry for late reply.

Zephyr is right, Hops Kills Nazis and 5am Saint.

I've abandoned both now due to worries that they may be unreliable. I've gone for Greg Hughes' Cornish Tin Miners Ale. Nothing like it HKN, but it sounds great.

I still plan a brew dog brew tho - Single Hop IPA - Vic Secret.

I have 'tinkered' with a few of the dog recipies and all have been pretty good.Ok,probably not much like the original due to my tinkering but well recieved by others.

Their Jet Black Heart clone makes a great stout, pretty sure you'd tell them apart in a blind tasting but different isn't worse. 5am is on my list to try.

I'm currently drinking my brew of their Brixton Porter. It's really good. Best porter/stout I've ever done.

I imagine if I stay away from their extreme recipes (like 2.5kg of caramalt for example), then their recipes would produce a good brew.
