The first couple of recipes in the Skunk Fart Ale topic are pretty close to LCPA.

Yep. Have perfected the JS Aussie Strong Ale.
The first time I brewed it I got pretty close. The second time I nailed it.
Have another batch of it ready for kegging now. Just waiting on an empty keg.

We all tried JSB's LCPA clone at Gloiaths during my Adelaide visit
It was spot on , the best copy I have ever tasted , I am sure others who
sampled it will agree with me
It's a partial , in the recipe section under "Big Animal Pale Ale"
On my hit list for sure

Yeah Batz. Did the JS Amber Ale as my first ever AG.
Have the recipe around here somewhere. I dig it out in a couple of days (in the middle of painting so god knows where I put it when I cleared out the pantry) and post it.

Beers,
Doc

No, sorry Bobby.
Although from memory it was some base malt with a lot of crystal so would be easy to convert.

Beers,

I've dug out the recipe I was given and used to clone the JS Amber Ale.
Remember though that this was replicating the original JS Amber Ale prior to the days when Tooheys at Lidcombe now brew it.

For 23 litres

2.25kg JWM Trad Ale Malt
2.25kg CaraMunich Type I
0.50kg CaraFoam/CaraPils
0.25kg CaraAroma

4gr NZ Super Alpha 12% FWH (Whole)
6gr NZ Super Alpha 12% 80 min (Whole)
10gr Cluster 7% 80 min (Whole)
20gr Williamette 5 min (Pellet)

White Labs WLP005 British Ale Yeast


As for the Australian Strong Ale recipe I've posted above. I tapped my most recent keg of it tonight. It is per the recipe in a previous post in this thread except for I used Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale yeast over the WLP002 English Ale yeast. The difference is quite noticable. The WLP1084 provides a more fruity taste whereas the WLP002 is more malty in this beer.

Beers,
Doc

London Ale for the Amber ? I don't see why not. I ended up actually using WLP002 English Ale and it came out great.

Beers,
Doc

Doc, in what ways are they different?

I believe there a two differences. One is the batch volume (obviously Tooheys at Lidcombe have a larger brewing capacity) and the yeast. I remember hearing from the brewers at the JS brewery that Tooheys use their yeast.
I used to love the Amber ale, but every time I've tried it in the last eighteen months I've hated it.
Now my tastes have changed, but IMO since Tooheys starting brewing it the beer just isn't quite the same. I just hope this doesn't happen with the JS Pils when (if it hasn't already) out grows the capacity of the Camperdown brewery and Tooheys start making that too.

Just my opinions,
Doc

Just resurrecting the thread as I'll be trying Doc's JS Aus Strong Ale recipe shortly.

Is there a substitute for the CaraWheat (above)? Maybe Crystalwheat(?) + extra CaraMalt to get a similar effect?

Being fairly new to the all-grain thing, I haven't had much experience with substitutions. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Any updates on the recipe Doc since the original post?

Yeap some thing, I notice doc has carawheat at 79ebc from france, the most common is thomas fawcett or weyermann both around 120-140EBC just use that. Cara is just another name given to crystal malts by some companies.

Thanks jayse
The 79 EBC did confuse me a bit. Thought it must have been something wild and wonderful I hadn't heard of yet. :huh:

Live and learn.

Hi Doc,

I was just looking at your JS Amber recipe. Have plugged the details into Beersmith and it appears very dark in colour. Is the amount of CaraMunich Type 1 correct? Maybe the info I have for CaraM 1 is incorrect (51 SRM)....

Thanks

I've done doc's recipe and found it much too dark. There was another clone in the recipe database that i thought came out much cleaner.

Here's an approximation of that recipe - i say approximation as i converted it to partial, and back to AG, but don't have the original AG recipe

Amount Item Type % or IBU
5.00 kg JWM Traditional Ale Malt (5.9 EBC) Grain 71.4 %
1.50 kg JWM Light Munich (19.7 EBC) Grain 21.4 %
0.50 kg JWM Dark Crystal (220.6 EBC) Grain 7.1 %
10.00 gm Pride of Ringwood [10.10%] (70 min) Hops 13.1 IBU
20.00 gm Fuggles [5.70%] (20 min) Hops 5.0 IBU
20.00 gm Williamette [5.50%] (5 min) Hops 2.4 IBU
1 Pkgs English Ale (White Labs #WLP002) [Starter 1000 ml] Yeast-Ale

I've brewed this recipe probably 6 times with each time just making minor changes to the hopping schedule and the yeast used. I've also tried both the Weyerman and TF Cara/Crystal Wheat malts.
For the best results use the Wyermann CaraWheat and White Labs WLP002 English Ale yeast. This by far gives the closest resemblence to the 2003 JS Strong Ale.
I too will be brewing it again soon and reverting to my second recipe.
I'll need to check my notes at home as to what my second recipe is and whether it is the one you quote.

Beers,
Doc
