    Hi Chaps,

    After my initial all grain tragedy I think I've worked the bugs out of my setup so hoping to do another brew day this weekend. Hoping to have a go at a Beavertown Neck Oil Clone. I had a tin at the weekend and it's ace.

    Their website refers to extra pale malts so I assume that there is limited additional stuff in the grain Bill other than Pale. Think this right?

    The hops quoted are Magnum, Columbus, Centennial, Simcoe, Amarillo, Galaxy, Vic Secret and Mosaic.

    At what stages would these go into the kettle. Are any of these typically bittering hops or for dry hopping only?

    First time trying to clone a beer so any help appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I would suggest that it is just extra pale malt (torrified wheat for head retention maybe) and Magnum as a classic clean bittering hop but could use colombus.

    After that I would add all the others late and personally I would use amarillo and galaxy as dry hops.

    Hard to say really as I was working through some early practical issues having been new to all grain brewing. I definitely under-did the hops so have increased the hop amounts throughout without raising the IBU. However, there were definite signs that this is along the right lines so I'm really looking forward to seeing how this one tastes in a couple of weeks once carbed up (will have a sneak in a week probably ;-)).

    I think Geetee makes a good point about the wheat. Will add a note to include some next time.

    Having had an early sample of mine I would definitely say the hop quantities need to be more like bunglebrewsbeer has it there. Need to almost double my aroma and dry hop additions.

    Colour is spot on though so extra pale is the way to go.

    Hi - I’m brewing this again in a couple of weeks for a mates party. I’m going to follow the recipe posted by Bunglbrewsbeer. Previous attempts have been along the right lines but I think this could be pretty close. Will let you know.
