    I love to brew and in my 2 years of brewing, a high % of my brew days have been dedicated to beers that I cant get in New Hampshire due to distribution issues or low availability. I usually use the Homebrew Network on facebook to find the "hot" beer of the moment that I cant brew and I tend to brew it to see what the big deal is. I have done Pliny the elder (russian river brewing), Moose drool (big sky brewing), Heady Topper (the alchemist), Zombie Dust (three floyds), Maharaja IIPA (avery brewing), two hearted ale (bells brewery).

    I am looking for 5 gallon batch all grain clones of beers that I probably havent had or heard of. I dont need you to give me the recipe, I can look them up myself. Just the names of them. You may be thinking "how the heck do I know what you have had" and to this I reply with "I live in New Hampshire so our distribution network isnt great so if you live outside of new england chances are, I havent had it unless its a bigger known beer company like Sierra Nevada or founders".

    If you have time to jot down a few beers (and who brews them) so I can look up recipes, Id appreciate it. If not, thank you for reading.

    Just curious...if you brew from a "clone recipe" and never try the actual beer, how can you know whether it's very much like the original?

    Luckily I live around microbrew ally. I bring all my beers to the head Brewers of them to try if they had already had the original. Their feed back is invaluable.

    Thank you, I'll do some research on it and possibly add it to my brew schedule. Thanks for your input.

    I like that one quite a bit, too, even though it finishes very sweet.

    Little bang brewing company - the naked objector

    Modus operandi - former tenant red ipa or the yeast coast ipa

    Coopers pale ale

    Pirate life mosiac ipa

    I know some of these beers will be almost impossible to clone and to get a fresh example to test against ...send them to me for blunt and honest feedback

    Isn't it odd that the wheat is so popular and widely distributed? Don't get me wrong, it is a good beer, but they make better beers (IMHO)
