This recipe for a 3-gallon batch came reasonably close for me, although =
it was too bitter for my taste... next time try slightly less hops, =
perhaps only 1 oz Tettnanger for bittering in 3 gallons instead of 1.25 =
oz.  I would also consider using only Hallertauer Mittelfruh for =
flavoring and aroma.  Also, it would probably have nicer malt character =
if LME were used instead of DME.  Just a few ideas.  Good luck.  ~Dave

      Malts / Fermentables:      
        Crystal 40               4.00  oz
        Light Dry Malt Extract   3.50  lb
      
      Hops:                      Amount:       Type:  Alpha: Add:   =
Minutes:
        Tettnanger               1.25   oz     Pellet 4.5    Boil   60   =

        Hallertauer              0.25   oz     Pellet 4.4    Boil   15  
        Tettnanger               0.25   oz     Pellet 4.5    Boil   2  
        Hallertauer              0.25   oz     Pellet 4.4    Dry    0  
      
      Miscellaneous Ingredients
        Irish Moss          0.50    tsp

      Yeast:
      Wyeast 2124 Bohemian Lager Yeast

      Comments:
      Steep crystal malt to 170 deg F in 1.5 gallons water.
      Add extract and boiling hops and boil 45 minutes.
      Add flavor hops and Irish moss and boil 13 minutes.
      Add aroma hops and boil 2 minutes.
      Add cold distilled water up to 3 gallons.
      Pitch yeast when cool, ferment 6 days at 50 deg F.
      Rack to secondary and add dry hops.  Ferment another 3 weeks.
      Prime and bottle with a scant 1/2 cup of corn sugar.  Age at least =
3 weeks prior to drinking.  Mellows with age.

Re: Sam Adams Stock Ale Clone


This recipe calls for a lager yeast. Can you use this type of yeast for =
an ale at room temp fermentation??

Re: Sam Adams Stock Ale Clone
That's because it's not a recipe for the stock ale...it's a recipe for
the Sam Adams lager.

Oops, just call me stupid..... I didn't realize you were asking for Sam =
Adams Stock ALE, I just assumed you were looking to do the ever-popular =
Stock LAGER.  Sure, use an ale yeast instead, it doesn't even matter =
much what kind you use.  Personally I might use Nottingham, it's a clean =
reliable dry ale yeast.  You'll get a little more fruitiness and =
complexity, and probably cloudiness, than you would for a lager.  But I =
believe the recipe is fairly similar otherwise between the two.  Denny =
might have more details(?).
