Fat Tire Clone

Fat Tire Clone has an aroma that is malty with little else to speak of. Pours a one finger head that dissipates quickly. Mouthfeel is a bit harsh – possibly too much carbonation. The taste is thin maltiness with a tinge of hops and sweet caramel.

5 gallon yield, malt extract recipe

 

Ingredients:

 

7 lbs. LME

1 lb. Biscuit Malt

12 oz. Munich Malt

1 oz. Willamette hop pellets for bittering

1 oz. Liberty hop pellets for aroma

California ale yeast (WLP001 or WLP051 or US-05)

 

Instructions:

 

Heat 3 gallons of water to 160°F. Add the steeping grains in a muslin or nylon bag, turn off heat and steep for 10-15 minutes, then remove the steeping bag and turn the heat back on. When the grain tea comes to a boil, turn off the heat and stir in l the LME until completely dissolved. Turn heat back on. When the wort comes to a boil, set a timer for 60 minutes and add the bittering hops (Willamette). When there are 15 minutes remaining on the timer add the reconstituted Irish Moss if you wish. When there are 5 minutes left on the timer, add the aroma hops (Liberty). After boiling, cool to 80 degrees or less and top up with water to just over 5 gallons before adding yeast. Aerate well and ferment at 68-70 degrees Fahrenheit.
