Subject: Commercial Beer Matrix, Part 1/2

The following commercial beer matrix has been gleaned from various posts in
HBD and rec.crafts.brewing. I find it useful, if not for cloning certain
beers, for finding out what types of ingredients, OGs, etc. are pleasing to
me. The best beers I have brewed were "clones" of commercial beers. They
were not exact duplicates, but actually better than the originals (the
advantage of homebrewing decisions vs. making money).

I find it interesting to note that some breweries use only one type of base
malt and crystal for most or all of their beers, and still provide a wide
variety of beers. This is probably due to the economy of mass buying, but
it shows how versatile you can be using different quantities of base malts
and crystal, and then changing hops and yeast. I don't know anything about
the water treatments (if any) of these brews, but that could have a
considerable effect as well.

The hops are, I believe, in order of boiling time, as should be evident in
most of these beers by the hop variety. They are not all completely
accurate, as the growing region of a particular hop can affect its flavor
profile greatly (note that Redhook gives "Yakima Hallertau", which I presume
is the American version of Mittelfrueh, although I'm not positive. It also
lists "Tettnang", which I'm guessing is Tettnanger Tettnang, grown in
Germany). You can see that some of this information needs work; also some
of it may be dated.

Note that I only assembled this information into a single matrix; I did not
gather it originally from the breweries. I would appreciate similar info on
other breweries (large and small), other beers by these breweries, and any
corrections that you note. If you tour a brewery, take notes!
