They are more ingredients lists than actual recipes; no grist percentages, mash temp, or hop schedule, no ferm temp/schedule...

I did however try to clone Mirror Pond, but it didn't quite make the cut. While it's not bad, it certainly isn't Mirror Pond. I jokingly call it a Scotch American Ale. I used a touch more crystal malt than I should have (or typically care for) coupled with the 90 minute boil - it came out with a ... wee bit of kettle caramelization.

I'm a fan of anything Deschutes, including Mirror Pond, but their prices went up recently, so brewing it starts making more sense.  ;)

There's two episodes that cover brewing Mirror Pond from The Jamil Show.  I haven't listened to them personally, but probably some good tips there.
