We can't buy WDA anymore but can we craft the recipes using just Mr. Beer extracts? I am willing to find out so here is what I came up with in what I am calling End of Winter Dark Ale -- Defibrillator Option: American Porter HME Oktoberfest HME Robust LME Safale S-04 yeast OG 1.068 SRM 40+ IBU 62 1.95 kg of hopped malt For the Black Moon Rising Option, I would simply substitute 2 Smooth LMEs for the Robust LME which would (in theory) lower SRM from 47 to 36, and increase hopped malt to 2.2 kg. I would try this Porterfest BMR Option myself, but all 3 LBKs are now once again in use! You will note that I am not venturing into any extra hopping here, but would really be interested to hear what the Forum Brewers might recommend. Finally, as with any brewing experimentation, in the end I will have made beer. But I am hoping that these attempts will be successful and maybe help those suffering through their WDA withdrawals. At least until that other Craft Series is announced...
