    I was looking at the BrewDog recipes earlier. I'm not a great BD fan - I find them too hoppy for my taste - but, I quite liked the look of their Zeitgeist brew. Anyone tried making it? Or any BrewDog recipes?

    Haven't made it but drank it. Not hoppy at all so should suit your needs

    I have brewed Dead Pony Club from the DIYdog, and also one of their imperial black IPAs, both came out great, the pony club especially which was very representative.

    I often use the grain bills from some of their recipes and play around with the hops too.

    No need to email, you can download a PDF with all the recipes from their website. Its 280 odd pages and a very good resource for recipes or just for inspiration.

    I was going to suggest the recipe I did first out of "DIYDog" - Hunter Foundation Pale Ale, #88 - because it didn't have too high bitterness and didn't involve all that dry hopping business. It was very pleasant. But I find it's true for "Zeitgeist" too, in fact it is even less bitter. Go for it.

    Don't trust those DIY Dog recipes without putting them through a brewing calculator - some of them are wildly inaccurate in terms of hop and grain bills.

    Yup, nice beers, and good that they share recipes, but I find some of the recipes weird. As in: their numbers are not my numbers.

    On recommendation of this thread I ventured into the world of Brewdog. Only just emerged a few hours later (need a beer after that). Loads of reading in their DIY recipes and the 'Hop Propaganda' PDFs. Some whacky recipes there but good inspiration.

    That's the site I looked at. The Zeitgeist stood out for me as not too complicated and not stupidly hoppy.
    But I'd have to go with non-organic grains

    I did zeitgeist for my very first grainfather run, came out really well for a first attempt I was very happy with it. Finished the last of them about a month ago and I would say it would be best drunk young as it lost some of its complexity later on.

    The last beer a brewed was the punk ipa older version, so no dry hopping was a nice brew
