Had a couple of pints of ghost ship yesterday. The hops seem more American than first gold

That is a different beer Dennis :scratch:

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

Broadside is a delicious beer, I look forward to hearing how this turns out.
I'd say the most important thing for a clone is getting the yeast right. I don't know what that Gervin yeast is like, never used it but according to Mr Malty WLP25 is Adnam's yeast.

"The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried."

Planning: Brett Amarillo Smash
Fermenting: AG52 Brett Saison v2, AG41 Lambic v2.0
Conditioning: AG51 Brett Saison, AG48 Biere de Garde, AG42 Westvleteren XII Clone, AG29 Lambic v1.0
Drinking: AG51 Brett Saison v1, AG53 Standard Bitter

Adnams is a dual strain and not available to buy, so I understand.

As Dennis says, buy an Adnams minikeg and it comes with free yeast. I bought ghost ship keg, drank the beer, grew the yeast, split into 4 vials. I gave 3 away and grew the other. It has now done I think 6 beers, i'm undecided whether to retire it now (as the dual strain ratio changes) and get another keg at some point or keep it going a little longer.

My understanding is one strain will start to dominate after a few generations.

Yes, that is my understanding too but it has not been detrimental yet. I reused the minikeg with a beer so that yeast is only 2nd gen. Think I will grow that again. Reckon I'll get about 10 brews out of the yeast from the original keg.

Wlp025 is no longer available I'm afraid, however you can buy the mini kegs of Adnams and I know people who have cultured the yeast from these, I'm not sure what effect their own yeast but it's dual strain as mentioned above.

Apparently there's a Wyeast equivalent of WLP025. if you check the comparison bit on the Mr Malty site it lists one.

I've been putting together a recipe for this and it seems pretty similar although I'd not bothered with sugar or wheat. I'd upped the Maris Otter as I like the bottled version best. The Adnams site seemed to mention just pale, chocolate and black malt but I can see a bit of wheat and brown sugar working good.

I'm going to do mine with Fullers yeast as I'm going to grow some from bottles anyway for an attempt at 1845. I'll have to get some more bottles ready though as I've only got small Belgian ones at the moment.

FV - Altbier
Bottled: Blond & Amber Biere De Garde, Blond & Amber French Ale, Belgian Pale
Planned: More Altbier, Kolsch, XX Bitter Clone

I am watching this thread with interest, as this is one of my favourite beers.

Much better in the cask than the bottled version which blows your head off and tastes too sweet for my palate. I hope it goes well!

Has anyone here tried the Broadside recipe from the Graham Wheeler book?
