Dead Pony Club attempt

Postby Zod » Tue Jun 14, 2016 20:48

Evening all,

Since Brewdog released their recipes I've been planning to have a crack at Dead Pony Club. Their recipes are not specific in terms of hop additions so I've reviewed other clones online and had a guess. Their recipe is for 20L and I have simply reduce the hops for a 15L version. How does this look? Maybe I should split some of the dry hops and do a 0min addition?

15L BIAB

2.1kg MO
0.5kg Carapils
0.1kg Wheat Malt Dark

3.8g Simcoe 60min
3.8g Citra 60min
3.8g Simcoe 10min
3.8g Citra 10min
37g Simcoe Dry Hop
56g Citra Dry Hop
46g Mosaic Dry Hop

Try Mangrove Jacks US West Coast M44.

Should even take it down a couple of points lower than US05 and is very clean.

It's interesting that the BrewDog homebrew kits for DPC uses US-05 as the yeast.

Wyeast 1056 that they use is supposed to be the same strain as US-05, but the dried doesn't perform half as good as the liquid.

That's the only reason I'd look to use an alternative dry yeast.

Why is liquid not an option?

Always good to get another option on the dry yeast front if not a fan of US-05. Not used Mangrove Jacks dry yeast before but I would go for liquid using Wyeast 1056 (as listed on DIY BrewDogs released recipes) as the way to go.

I'm going to give this a go in a few weeks with the 1056.

Keep us posted, always good to have feedback on an alternative option if you use dried, and with two mentions of Mangrove Jacks it'll be interesting to hear how it turns out

What's wrong with us-05? Most of the American apa yeasts are just the pacman strain in dry form surely?

because two people suggested changing it.....is it not a good choice?


Anyway - what about the hop schedule? That's my primary reason for asking for feedback as I'm just guessing currently....

Agreed. US-05 has got to be the most reliable and clean american ale yeast.

I can't imagine that 1056 would significantly improve this beer over US-05, I think the difference would be barely noticeable.

Hops and yeast look fine to me, I've brewed something pretty similar several times and it has always gone down well. When comparing it to the original DPC I noticed that mine was considerably lighter in colour than Brewdog's version despite using around 7% Caramalt.
