MullerBrau wrote:My clone is as close as you can get IMHO. We have done many taste tests and I have made at least 150 gallons of it. The IBU's are about 50 but for best results, use late hopping techniques to achieve this bitterness. It takes more hops but is the secret to a wonderful clone. Here is the recipe. Scale to your batch size.
zwiller wrote:Greg, do you think using all cents is the key to the orange magic? Lately I've been hopstanding hard to hit IBU and no bitterness additions and think my hop character is a bit one dimensional. Conventional wisdom says the bitterness additions do not contribute to flavor but I suspect it may, at least with cents. I am long overdue to try an old school brew like your recipe. Curious, if you may have used some other hops before going all cents. Any thoughts appreciated. THA and Founders Centennial have to be in my top 10 beers. Love centennial.
