Purity Pure UBU

Post by mattjazz2000 » Wed Jul 04, 2012 10:13 pm

Had a pint of this at the weekend at a show and it was bloody lovely. It's been spoken about on here before and I was wondering if anybody managed a passable clone?

This is a wierd one I attempted a clone of this but it just had too much Crystal Malt in it for me. Then I went to a local that had it on and my clone wasnt actually far off it and didnt like it. But I've had UBU before about a year ago and absolutely loved it so either my taste has changed or theyve changed their recipe!

UBU Clone:-

23l
4.5Kg Maris Otter
250g Crystal 120 (WAYYYYYYYY TO MUCH FOR ANY 23 litre batch in my book!)
250g Torrified Wheat

50g Challenger @ 90
50g Cascade @ 5
50g Challenger @ 5
50g Cascade @ flameout

Safale S04 and A whirfloc.

This aint my recipe btw and unless you absolutely LOVE the real stuff I would seriously recommend reducing the crystal to about 100g!!

Its nice and hoppy as you can see which I like but the crystal blows too much of the hop characteristic away leaving you with quite a bold toffee maltiness. (I guess its prob down to personal taste ) :)

i sometimes use 250 grams of crystal and 250 grams of caragold in 40 litres it makes good beer. got a continually hopped ale with columbus and chinook with the said amount of caragold and crystal. its the best beer i have made by far....

Enjoyed several bottles of this at the weekend, didn’t recognise the hop mix, but suspected cascade in there.
The recipe may have changed, but the purity brewing bottle was quoted on the website as having these ingredients :
Pure UBU (4.5% ABV, IBU36) is a distinctive, full flavoured beer with a sweeter finish. Brewed with English Maris Otter, Crystal, and Wheat malts, with Pilgrim and Cascade hops.

I don’t recall having had pilgrim before, but really quite enjoyed it.

Any updated recipes?

Sunk many a pint of UBU as the brewery is only 8 miles away. Nice beer

UBU very nice, but IMNSHO Mad Goose is better.

I’ve only had the Purity beers they stock in supermarkets but have enjoyed both the pale and amber beers on numerous occasions.

Pilgrim's probably being used as a bittering hop - Cloudwater use Pilgrim extract pretty extensively, it's used to bitter all their DIPAs for instance. So don't sweat the Pilgrim thing.

UBU's OK, Pure Gold in cask is lovely if on form.

The taste of pure gold reminds me of the moseley music festivals. As the weakest beer on the bar i get through a few pints on festival days, long summer days with great bands playing.
