Wasabi (I think)was asking for clone recipes for Theakston's Old Peculiar.
Here is the recipe given in Zymurgy magazine, March/April 2001.

For 19 Litres:

4kg UK Pale malt
340g 110EBC Crystal malt
227g Dextrose
227g dark brown sugar
170g torrified wheat
114g Lyle's Golden Syrup
114g black malt
28g Northern Brewer (8% AA) (90 minute boil)
14g Fuggles (15 minutes)
14g Fuggles (5 minutes)
28g Fuggles (dry hop)
Wyeast 1099/WhiteLabs British Ale yeast
3/4 cup corn sugar to prime.

Boiling time-90 minutes
Original Gravity- 1.060
Finishing Gravity 1.012
IBU's- 29

Brewers specifics:Mash grains at 65C for 60 minutes. Sparge, boil 30 minutes, and add hops at indicated intervals. After a 90 minute boil, whirlpool and rack off break material, chill to 18C and pitch yeast. Add dry hops in secondary. Bottle with corn sugar and allow to mature at 21C for 2 to 4 weeks.

Extract recipe Omit pale malt. Steep specialty grains in 65C water for 20 minutes. Strain, add sugars and 3kg light dry malt extract and boil adding hops at specified intervals.

Not sure of what efficiency they are looking at but usually it is 75%.

Hope this is useful to someone :chug:

Cheers and bollocks
