Yes I know this subject is done to death on Grumpys forum
I found LCPA in my local bottle shop today , we don't often get such beers , so scored a couple of stubbies.
Nice brew , I brewed one from Grumpys site and I believe it was pritty close to this.
Now anyone have a clone? Jayse or Jazzman I think had one.
Partial of full
Cheers for that

my lastest LCPA clone ideas are under a thread called 'skunk fart ale'.
I'll add some more notes to that thread later plus its younger brother which i call 'misty mountain hop- X.L.C.R'.
which I took some ideas from grumpy andrews X.L.C.R recipe.
this is more of a bigger session beer being 1% less in alc and no crystal malts and less ibu.

heres another A.P.A recipe.

5 kg pale malt
200 grams cara munich

50 grams 5.7%a.a cascade 60 mins

28 g cascade 10 mins
28 g cascade 5-1 min.

1056 wyeast american or safale so4.

this is pretty much the standard american pale recipe.
at around 65% effeincy in 20 litres you'll get a o.g of 1.055.
and 40-45ibu.

i have found that the more modified pale malts don't have that good a head rention so i use up to 10% wheat aswell.
i actually have found the amc mega lager malt has very good head foaming and stabilty.

so close but yet so far jaz
batz i reckon the grumpys boston cream is fairly close but i think i will get closer when i get my full mash up and running.jayse is fairly well spot on from what i can gather from those that have tried his recipes.
reckon it will be a good starting point if ipas aka american style is your thing.
i think this will be my first then try either an arrogant bastard clone or sister star of the sun .

Tried this last friday for the first time ever. Reckon it was a waste of money. Gotta agree with the bloke in the bottle that sold it to me "tastes like dried herbs".
Mountain Goat kills this. And then there is alway Coopers.

Thanx for that Johnno, Always looking for a reason to get the red cards out.
Sounds like we are all wasting our money and time making these beers.
How about you ask the bottlo guy how to knit a jumper because iam sure he knows just as much about that as he does beer. :angry:


no cheers for you :angry: Jayse

Oh no not another red card....
Well jayse ,
just coz i dont like it doesnt mean a thing really. Its all a matter of personal taste in the end. Had 4 stubbies and just could'nt get my head around it. Maybe it was the curry i had for tea that night. I'll give it another go one more time (only coz the missus loved it). Come to think of it the bottlo said his fav was heineken. Now thats style for ya hehehehe

Cheers B)

I must admit, I've had some fairly boring bottles of LCPA before.

I think if they're stored for too long they lose a lot of that hop bite they have.

Nothing better than the taste of it fresh from a tap in freo.

Johnno since you did have four stubs I do take it your post was your honest thoughts so fairs fairs I might have been a tad harsh.
Anyway fresh is best even try get it from somewhere who sells a lot of it. By the sounds of it that bottlo you got it from they properly have old ones.
The last grumpy fresh wort was made to this exact style with hops from the same source and all 800 litres of it walked out the door in 4 days.
So i think it would be acurate to say this is one of the most popular beers around for brewers.

Anyway who am I to judge my $0.02 aren't worth anymore than yours.
Cheers 'not so angry, Jayse'

jayse,
yeah i'd go for it again. The bottlo did say they sold it but not much of it. Took him a while to find some out the back. Maybe it was an older batch. Now being at the brewrey , that would be a different story. Yeah I'm interested in those Grumpy packs but hafta wait till next autumn (if they have them) when its cooler. Man its a bummer having no temp control.

cheers B)

With the rate they are selling them I think they will be doing these all the time.
Have you tried using the laundry trough full of water and ice for temp control.

Jayse.logging off now need to go do some work.

Anyway just another hurdle.

Kook is right. At $65 a carton I don't buy bottles of LCPA anymore. From the tap on a hot lazy Sunday is the go.

cc is important and improves your beer immensly....but not essential. IF you want t o make beer just make, but realise its not going to be the best you've ever made

Just had a quick pint of LCPA over lunch at the Australian Hotel in The Rocks, Sydney (1st place to have it on tap outside of WA).
Went down really well today and tasted great.
