    Also interested in this as it’s a favourite of mine. I can tell you they use willamette, cascade and chinook hops but I’m yet to find a recipe to follow. There is an all grain kit available but at £30 it’s a tad pricey.

    Dont know what yeast they use but you could probably harvest it from a bottle itself but I suspect its probably a chico strain.


    What I have seen previously you use chinook for the bittering and willamet and cascade for finishing.. I guess it will always be some kind of guess though.

    I'm just doing the clone from BrewUK. Apparently it won the 'who can design the closest home-brew match to Proper Job' competition. It has the full hop schedule on the recipe, but not sure about the malt. I'll dig the sheet out when I get home.

    I did brew this back in the summer. Certainly reminded me of Proper Job, but wasn't quite there. Certainly one which I'll experiment with in the coming months.

    Here is the Grainfather recipe, as I copied it from the BrewUK instructions.
    They were specific about the hop schedule, but for the grist I just weighed the lot and put it all in a MO pale.
    OG came out a bit lower then indicated on the attached.

    Looking at the BrewUK website, this winner of the 'Proper Job Challenge' might just be a straight 5.5Kg of MO

    Might have to try it without the crystal malts, it may well have been those which gave the flavour which "wasn't quite right", but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. That along with trying a dry hop.

    I think you're right, I've made the BrewUK Extract version and it just uses light spraymalt with no steeped grains. It was spot on: I took a bottle on holiday next to a St Austell pub and was able to do an A/B with a pint in the pub then a pint of my own. I couldn't tell the difference.

    It did benefit from a longish conditioning time (too sweet initially), but then again it is 5.5% ABV. For AG the amount of grain you need will depend on your efficiency to get a 5.5% brew.

    In the recipe I have, the hop additions are at 60min, 30min, 15min and 0min (steeped for 30min) - no dry hop.

    Just as a quick update: I bottled my BrewUK all grain Proper Job last night (made with the hop schedule I posted earlier) and the little taster I had was excellent. Tasted just like the real thing. When it's carbed and conditioned I might try a side-by-side comparison with a bottle of proper Proper Job.

    For the AG version (23L):

    5.5Kg Maris Otter Pale

    60 min boil

    10g Chinook @ 60 min
    10g Willamette @ 60min

    10g Chinook @ 30 min
    10g Willamette @ 30min
    13g Cascade @ 30 min

    7g Chinook @ 15 min
    20g Willamette @ 15min
    20g Cascade @15 min

    8g Chinook @ hopstand 20 min
    24g Willamette @ hopstand 20 min
    26g Cascade @ hopstand 20 min

    Danstar Nottingham yeast

    For extract, use about 3.5Kg light dried malt extract plus the hop schedule above, and I think that will turn out the same. @Darrellm will be able to correct me if i am wrong.
