    Hey
    Does anyone have a good clone for Balter XPA? Currently brewing from cans but will be happy with any recipe.
    Cheers

    This is a brew I did recently and loved it. Tried a side-by-side comparison, but that didn't work, then I drank it all :D I noted that the colour was a bit too dark and that there may have been a bit too much medium crystal? I am definitely doing this one again soon. Have at it. Let us know how yours turns out.

    like someone said in the other thread I think I would start with a standard stone and wood pacific ale clone, and add some vienna and alter the hop schedule to use the advertised hops to the advertised IBU. One thing I have learnt over the years is that micros quite often change the hops on even their signature beers from year to year so I wouldn't get toooo hung up on the choice of hops. imho it's mroe emulating the balance and mouth feel.
