    Anybody got a clone recipe for King goblin.
    Was thinking scale up the hobgoblin grains to get 6.2 abv and scale the hobgoblin hops up to match.
    Any views ?

    King goblin was brewed under licence in Belgium and isn't just a scaled up hobgoblin, sorry 'bout that. It was an awesome beer at the time there were not that many good beers in the uk supermarkets. now you can get delerium tremens in tescos and westmalle... etc. it was as i recall much better than leffe bruin.

    Thanks for that. Been developing one myself. Took all the reviews and as mush info as I can find. It's a great beer and I buy it frequently.
    Ive been brewing a while now and think this could be close
    Take any feedback you may have tho
    Going to brew it in a week or 2 after I get a mosaic smash is in the keg.
    Cheers

    If i wanted to make this into a partial mash, would it be as simple as substituting the Maris Otter with 3.6kg Malt Extract (presumably dark), keeping the rest of the ingredients the same and following my regular partial mash technique?

    I can't get my head around or seem to find a conversion from AG to Partial.

    Thanks.

    Hi Mavroz I think you should be able to do what you normally do and if you have a copy of the bible at the back I think from memory there is some kind of advise that will help you to convert the amount of Extract to use to attain the same SG. Have a go as with all recipe if the first is not bang on if gives you a really good starting point from then onwards. Good luck

    Thanks for the reply Baron.

    Most partial mashes that are finish around the 23 litre mark use around 3 to 3.5 kg of Malt extract whether that is dry or liquid.
    I was just wondering about the amounts of other malts in the mash, whether the quantities would be the same.
    In fairness the above recipe amounts look about right for a partial mash with the exception of the Otter which would be substitued.

    I have had a trip to the village church and their bible's (new testament) do not have any sort of Extract conversion chart in the back of them, or am i confused?:laugh8:

    I am certainly going to give it a go and will report back in due course.

    Ps, A big sorry to @iaincrosbie as i am not meaning to hijack your post. Apologies again.
