Hurricane Bawbag - Stone Arrogrant Bastard Clone

Postby rlemkin » Sun Oct 19, 2014 17:16

Perusing the interwebs in search of recipes I came across this beer, turns out it's loaded with hops I have in the freezer and is something slightly different from an IPA. 8-)

I've never been in the US and been able to drink (legally), so I've never tried Stone's Arrogant Bastard. It looks like a mix between an American IPA and something darker and stronger - classed as an American Strong Ale. What intrigues me about it is the use of Belgian Special B Malt into something hoppy.

I've taken a recipe from over on a US homebrew forum - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/can-you-brew-recipe-stone-arrogant-bastard-176191/index5.html - and looking at adapting this slightly and brewing it up in the next few days.

Oh yes.. I was trying to give it a Scottish twist, but gave up and just went for the silly name instead. If you missed Hurricane Bawbag it even has it's own wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Bawbag

On a side note their marketing BS must surely be the inspiration for BrewDog

This is an aggressive ale. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth. We would suggest that you stick to safer and more familiar territory–maybe something with a multi-million dollar ad campaign aimed at convincing you it’s made in a little brewery, or one that implies that their tasteless fizzy yellow beverage will give you more sex appeal. Perhaps you think multi-million dollar ad campaigns make things taste better. Perhaps you’re mouthing your words as you read this.

At Stone Brewing, we believe that pandering to the lowest common denominator represents the height of tyranny - a virtual form of keeping the consumer barefoot and stupid. Brought forth upon an unsuspecting public in 1997, Arrogant Bastard Ale openly challenged the tyrannical overlords who were brazenly attempting to keep Americans chained in the shackles of poor taste. As the progenitor of its style, Arrogant Bastard Ale has reveled in its unprecedented and uncompromising celebration of intensity. There have been many nods to Arrogant Bastard Ale…even outright attempts to copy it… but only one can ever embody the true nature of liquid Arrogance!

Just about to put this into the FV.

Special B malt smells absolutely fantastic, sweet, dark treacle, raisins etc. This is an interesting recipe, quite a low mash temp, lots of IBUs and a tonne of caramel malt for a hoppy brew.

Will be really interested to see how this turns out, I love Arrogant Bastard! Its definately on my list of future brews

Would love to see what final gravity you can get it down to, I always struggle to get S-04 past 70% attentuation so if you managed to get the full 75% - please give me some tips :)

Ps. Yeah, Brewdog definitely seem to have been inspired by Stone's confidence/bravado marketing. I always preferred Stone's for some reason though, just always seemed to have a bit more class than say 'Trashy blonde'. Maybe thats just me though...

Hopefully it goes the full way to 75%, if I only get 70% it's going to come in with an FG of 1.020 :|

Big krausen and went like a rocket for about 30 hours, but quietened right down now..

Does this 'Arrogrant Bastard' have anything to do with Motorhead? I know they made (or out their name to) a beer sounding similar.

Hey guys,
Love this beer , I was lucky enough to go to San Diego with work for 3 weeks and love the SD beer scene.
Some fantastic breweries out there ,some I went to were Ballast point,lightning brewery,Stone garden in Esondido,Alpine brewery.
Anyway I've brewed my version yesterday,
I hit 1.072 OG and I pitched malt millers west coast yeast which comes in 15 g packs, I rehydrated this first.
Currently bubbling away nicely at 20c.
It's a delicious beer, brewing it this time I went for a UK pale malt(crisps) just to see if there is any difference.
I also used a Blichmann Hoprocket stuffed with the 50g of chinook before my plate chiller,I open the valve let the hops soak for about 5 mins then open the valves and using the plate chiller I can fill the fermenting vessel in 10 mins with 18c wort.

As I use a Braumeister I'm limited to the weight in kg shown The recipe, however 7.0% ABV is good enough for me lol!Image

:cheers:

I'm wondering how this turned out. I love this beer!

I had help formulating a recipe but it wasn't even close to the real thing and had no Special B. Still good though.

For reference - Bawbags in Scotland is a colloquialism for underpants. (Ball bags) :thumb: :o

Maybe up your neck of the woods mate :D

Down here, in the leafy suburbs of Ye Olde Glasgow Towne, bawbag is the word for your sack that holds yer testes in (bawsack being a similar term of endearment :lol:).

So, calling your mate a "bawbag" is definitely not calling him a pair of underpants!
