    Looks interesting - the Anchor and Brooklyn recipes would interest me! Obviously lying for Brewdog recipes is completely unnecessary these days, but it would be interesting to see how these recipes compare to those in DIY Dog.

    You can see the list of recipes on Amazon (not the actual recipes though, that would be daft). Not sure I'd bother as I don't know most of the beers but I guess useful inspiration if you're after something similar to a commercial beer you like.

    I've only had a few, not ones I'd be bothered with recreating myself.

    I thought about that book almost exclusively for the Kernel India Porter.

    Kernel's India porter has got a good rep. I haven't tried it yet though, despite the Kernel brewery is only about 15 mins bike ride from me

    So the recipe doesn't actually say what hops to use

    That's interesting, Kernel has a house yeast. I thought it was just a standard American Ale yeast available from homebrew stores? A lot of their beers are bottle conditioned so could just harvest their yeast.

    It explains in the write up above the method that the hops are ever changing in that particular recipe.

    Haha, cool.! I'll not be buying the book now then!

    Actually, I still might... it looks ok for the price. :thumb:

    Delivered today and I'm impressed at first glance, the recipes have plenty of detail (altho I can't see the IBUs for each recipe!) and include a good description of each beer. I'll give it a proper read over the next few days and post again.

    Are there any other Kernel recipes in there? The (London) Brick Red for example?

    I've heard several people say kernel uses us-05. Not sure how accurate the rumours are but they might tell you if you ask them. I spoke to one of the brewers at brew by numbers and he was pretty open about what yeast he uses for different brews.

    I know you can't post up the recipe, but how close am I to Anchor Steam with my California Common recipe? Mine is very nice, but it lacks a bit of body (yeast took it down to 1.009), and could do with more bitterness. I'd aimed to make it with a lower ABV than Anchor Steam (aiming for 4.7% compared to 4.9%) but actually managed to (just) exceed it at 4.92%.

    450g (10%) crystal 120L
    4.25kg (90%) lager malt

    75g Northern Brewer split 28g for 60, 25g for 15 and 22g at flameout.

    MJ California Lager yeast.
