Brewing a Mac & Jack's African Amber Clone
Update 4/22/13: Full list of recipes can be found here.
Just started my first attempt to clone this beer, very appreciated here in the pacific northwest.
After checking few recipes online and based on some feedback from people that love this beer, here's the starting recipe that I'm trying now, happily bubbling at 67F as I type.
10 lb British Pale Ale malt
1 lb Crystal 80L
1 lb Munich 10L
1 lb Carapils
Mashed at 160F for 1h
3/4oz Centennial for 60min
1/2oz Cascade for 15min
1/2oz Cascade for 0min
10g wheat gluten for 10min (protein to increase chill haze)
1/2lb Lactose for 10min (bump up residual sweetness)
I'll post results once finished.
