Wicked Good Ale Clone?

Post by PBC » Sun Oct 14, 2018 8:35 am

Does anyone have a clone recipe of Garrisons Wicked Good Ale? Or have an idea of the hops they use?

Sounds like it would be a fun experiment.

Their website lists most of the info you would need to give this a good try:

Description: Hazy, tropical, aromas of melon, pear, white grape & tangerine.
Maritime Pale Ale, Oats, Wheat
Huell Melon, Cascade & Secret Hops
30 IBU
12.7 OG
5.0% ABV

If I had to guess, I'd say Nelson is the secret hop based on the white grape description.

OG is listed as 12.7 (plato) = 1.050 sg and at 5.0% ABV I'd say they are mashing at ~152F and getting around 1.010 FG using a clean ale yeast like US-05.

I'd do a grain bill like 84% 2-row, 8% flaked oats and 8% flaked wheat to an OG of 1.050. Aim to get most if not all of the IBU from a 20-30 minute whirlpool and try equal parts Huell Melon, Cascade & Nelson. Huell melon is pretty mild though and may get buried by the Cascade and Nelson though so you may even want to try 2 parts Huell Melon and 1 part each Cascade and Nelson.

Hope this helps!
