Who here has sucessfully brewed a spot-on clone of Dog Fish Head’s Indian Brown Ale?
I tried the recipe in Sam’s book, converted it from partial to all grain. The taste was good but not the same. I would say no cloned if following the CYBI process.
I was surprised as it’s direct from the brewery.
The brown ale goodness wasn’t there as I expected it to be. Tasting side by side with a DFH bottle, the bottled beer was far better.
Anyone else have this problem with the published recipe? If yes, what did you do to overcome the taste difference?
