    Anybody familiar with this beer from Shorts (Bellaire, MI)?
    Search and search and search, I cannot find the typical "clone" recipe that one gets by simply googling "[beer name] recipe"

    http://www.shortsbrewing.com/beers/controversiale/

    Just making an extract IPA at 6% and 67 IBU is one thing, but really not sure where to go to for the "cool sensation of toasted sourdough". Victory? Toast some 2-row? Special Roast?

    Any guidance/suggestions appreciated. A few of us homebrewers that work together desire to create something close to this.
