    Went up to White Rabbit on Sunday to enjoy a few of their Dark Ales and look at how they do things, managed to squeeze the basic recipe/ingredients out of one of the brewers and this is what I have come up with

    Anybody know where Pacifica is available at the moment? G&G don't seem to list it?

    Cheers

    Looks pretty good - there are a couple of other threads around that detail ingredients, and i think you've pretty much included everything mentioned.

    This one is going into the "to be brewed soonish" list :) Any chance I could grab the .bsmx file from you?

    Looks like a good recipe. As for the hops, Pacifica is also know as Pcific Hallertau so try looking for that.

    I think Ill brew something like this soon. What were the details they gave you and what did you make up? Thanks.

    They told me the malts (had the bags sitting on the floor) told me the percentages of the grist, told me cascade and pacifica for flavor and super alpha for bittering on the day they were putting whole cascade hop flowers into the beer when u bought the glass, hence I'm thinking dry hop with cascade
    After bittering the additions are my own, that's about all I have made up

    I'm not allowed to say... but at that point of time, the true recipe is mixed in there (not posted by me)

    Sticklebract is a good hop for finishing it, and use the real yeast

    That's rubbish.. if it's already out in public, what harm are you doing by pointing others toward it? If it was actual "inside information" that hadn't been made public, then your comment is fair enough - but it's not, so it isn't.

    Here's my summary of the other thread:

    There was some mention of raspberries and someone suggested Bramling Cross.

    On culturing the bottled yeast:
    See below:

    I reckon Screwtops's grainbill would go close but I am not convinced about the carapils. 2 base malts - check, 2 spec malts - hmm, mix of crystals - check. Given Kai's comments, maybe not dark enough either.

    I too went into WRB and was fortunate to have a quick chat with Kai, he's a good bloke. They were whirlpooling a Dark Ale at the time, it smelt great. He told me what hops they were using, just wish I could remember what he said! My faded memory is suggesting three varieties.

    Well I'm sure the recipe changes from time to time, so what was correct 6months ago might not be anymore. A few months ago I had trouble culturing the yeast, and was told they moved to a lager yeast for bottle conditioning; can anyone confirm or deny? Finally, when I was there, probably over a year ago now, there where a few sacks of malto-dextrin kicking about. I'm not saying they use them, just that they were there...

    So your making up my mind for me for what is right and wrong, who the **** are you?

    This is the way I was told to talk about it when I was informed on the source, and I support their decision.

    I'm the guy pointing out that it's a bit rough of you to emphatically say "that recipe is wrong", and then vaguely point at a thread with 30 recipes in it as proof of that statement, without any further clarification

    I'm not actually saying that you're trying to make yourself appear special because you have "inside information" not available to the rest of us by being cagey about it... but that might be how it appears to others

    I'm not actually saying that you're a tool because of how your pushing this... but that might be how it appears to others.



    There is no way I'm going to say more than what I've been told to say and where.

    So as not to make myself sound special in the future, even if I have knowledge about recipes I will not mention it. Go make the recipe how you want too.
