Deschutes Mirror Pond Clone Sorta
Satan came over for a visit and he asked if we could brew a British Pale Ale. I recently had the Deschutes Mirror Pond, and I thought it was "veddy" British. Fortunately, Jamil Zanisheff's show "Can You Brew It?" recently attempted a clone. Even though the boys didn't feel like the cloned the beer, JZ made a couple of suggestions, that I thought I would try. Sadly, I haven't had a chance to brew it, yet. Right now it is on schedule for Sunday the 8th.
