as you can see this is as close to cask ale as you can get and taste pretty darn good
Hot dang, that sure looks pretty. =D>

Did you change anything, or is that initial recipe what you ended up sticking to?

Any idea what commercial yeast could be used to get something close?

i have been asked to update this post on my final recipe
the only thing i did different was cut the late hops down by around half. The yeast i used second time around was wlp007 couldn't tell the difference from that to the original Doombar yeast hope this helps

Surely I'm not the only one that finds doombar bland tasteless p@ss and in the same league as john smiths, I have tried this bottled from a shop and from the cask in 3 different bars and all have been like drinking water, the worst being from wetherspoons which was served from the cask bloody nigh on ice cold :shock: [-X [-X . I cant believe that the recipe on this thread is the same as Coors are brewing and what the hell they are drinking in the video,certainly not the rubbish that I have tried if you can believe their comments. I have a few family and friends that love the stuff, but there again they all like fosters and john smoths :roll:.

Like you, I find it bland and watery - no hopping flavour, no bitterness either - I have wondered if Doombar was the result of the head brewer, having tried far too much of his own homebrew the night before, ran 200BBL through the plant and into the fermenter before realising he'd forgot to add any hops.

Also discussed by Martyn Cornell it's another Carling imo

In defence of the OP, your beer will be a lot better

Brewed this today. Started early and misread the amount of roasted barley as 207gr. End result was very dark so was going to post that maybe the stated amount is a tad high and then reread the recipe :oops: :cry:

Any idea if this will be drinkable? Should I dry hop it and pretends its a dipa? Shame as I used my home grown Northern Brewer hops for the first time and was quite excited...

It'll be more like a porter/stout with that amount, certainly some roasty notes. It should still be a tasty beer imo, albeit nothing like doombar :) so don't worry too much and just put it down to experience
Planned: Green Hop ale
Fermenting: Nothing
Bottled: Home grown Halletau Mittelfruh golden ale, centennial golden ale, Brown Kolsch, Strong Burton with Brett C
