Title: Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA attempt?
Post by: cwilly006 on May 07, 2012, 05:37:27 PM
Hey guys,

I want to do a DFH 90 Minute clone. I am using this as a basis http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/dogfish-head-90-minute-clone-260675/. In this recipes thread it has the extract instructions but I could not get the amber malt. I read in the recipe thread that I can use Victory Malt and Crystal 60L to replace the Amber Malt. I currently have 8OZ and 8OZ of each. Do you guys think this will work alright or should I change the amounts. This is my recipe from Hopville http://hopville.com/recipe/1328050/imperial-ipa-recipes/dogfish-90-minute. I know it will not come out completely the same but I am OK with that.  What would you guys suggest doing.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

8LB 12 OZ Briess Dry Extra Malt Light Extract
1LB Great Western Premium 2-Row Malt
12OZ Corn Sugar (Dextrose) 8OZ Victory Malt
8 Great Western Crystal 60L

Combine all hops and add every 3 minutes throughout the 90 minute boil

3OZ Amarillo
1OZ Simcoe
1OZ Warrior
Dry hop 7 days 2OZ Amarillo
Dry hop 7 days 2OZ Simcoe

I think this beer will be a lot better with the addition of yeast, and being a dogfishhead beer, I'd use Ringwood.   ;)

Pssshhh who needs yeast?  As I have already ordered my ingredients I will be using Safale-04

A great DFH clone can be made without Ringwood (and I think they use a diff strain for 90/120 Min).

Amber malt is the same as English "Biscuit". You can also use Briess Victory as a close substitute.

I think its important for a 90 min clone to be on point.

I have the Briess Victory Malt.  I know it should be spot on, I just don't have a LHBS so I order in bulk on MoreBeer to avoid any shipping charges.  How much Briess Victory would you use for a something close.  Thanks for your help!!
