I knew I read about this somewhere, sometime...

Here's a link to a Northern Brewer thread from January 2003 about Moose Drool...

I have had this recipe since I got promash, but wasn't sure it was right - thanks for the heads up and link to the NB thread. My only question is why the London ESB yeast? Seems a simpler more common yeast could be used. What do you guys think?
Thanks - Travis

Moose Drool is one of my all-time favorite beers and I drank quite a bit of it while I was up visiting my father in Montana. I wound up e-mailing the brewmaster at Big Sky Brewing and told him how disappointed I was that we couldn't get it here in NC and asked if he could assist in formulating the recipe. He was happy to oblige and sent the recipe posted above. I've brewed it several times and had the opportunity to compare it to the original and have to say that it's spot on.

You'll definitely want to use the London 1968 yeast -- it provides a nice malty, rounded balance with just a touch of fruitiness to it. IMHO, it's one of the best all-round yeasts to use, simply because it does add some depth due to the lack of "cleanness" on the palate.

The 1968 is pretty critical, and it is Big Sky's house yeast.

Ahhhhhh...Moose Drool fans! This is probably my all-time fav! I brewed a batch of this three weeks ago and just bottled over the weekend. My extract recipe is below. It tasted amazing flat so when it comes out of those bottles in a few weeks, whoa.....I'm getting thirsty!!!

.5 lbs. Crystal Malt 80°L
.5 lbs. Belgian Chocolate Malt
.5 lbs. Black Roasted Barley
6 lbs. Muntons Dry Light
.15 lbs. Corn Sugar
1.00 oz. East Kent Goldings (Whole, 5.00 %AA) boiled 20 min.
1.00 oz. Willamette (Whole, 5.00 %AA) boiled 5 min.
1.00 oz. Hallertau Tradition (Pellets, 6.00 %AA) boiled 60 min.
WYeast 1968 London ESB Ale

Enjoy! I will....

I brewed that recipe (only 5.5 gal & a hop substitution). Did a parallel tasting & the look, malt profile was real close. This recipe will give you more hoppy aroma than moose drool. Nothing wrong with that, though.

It's a 2°L crystal. And it's only 2.4% of the recipe. You could put tapioca in there and barely notice. But yeah, carapils/dextrine/carafoam/etc. A tasted a friend's beer a few years ago, loosely based on this recipe, and it was a fine example of the style.

Thanks Yeasty,

the Caramel Pils malt that I came across online was 6°L so I was somewhat confused by the original recipe...

sometimes I just need to relax and have a homebrew

I have seen the clone recipe for moose drool on brew 365. This guy at work was telling me how good it was on tap also, sure sounds good . I have my first Bells Best Brown clone attempt in the primary fermentor , i cant wait to check that one soon too.

Bell's and Big Sky - 2 of my favorites

At least I can get Moose Drool here in CO, I haven't had an actual Oberon in years. I have a clone thats all bottled up in the closet but it didn't taste that close when I had one a few weeks after bottling.

What's the best brown recipe?

Its my friend at works recipe, combined with the recipe from the best of brew(classic clone book) . I used 10 # two-row,1#victory,1#special roast,1#60L, and 4 oz of chocolate. The brew your own mag says 14oz each of special roast, 60l,and victory,and 2oz of chocolate. I used Cascade at 45 minutes ( a 65 minute boil) and a quarter once of magnum( i did not have the Nugget on hand) and fuggle at 15 minutes,and fuggle at 2 minutes. And i used the safale 05 yeast. Although they recommend WLP001, or wyeast 1056 ( which is very similar). Any how the guy i work with made the very similar recipe with it, i could not tell the difference between the two bottles in a side by side taste test. Tomorrow i shall check my finish gravity on mine. Hope this helps some.
I should say also i mashed at 155 deg,had a 1.062 OG, and 35 ibu's . Srm of 20.
