Panhead Supercharger APA Clone Recipe

Here's a handy Panhead Supercharger APA Clone Recipe


Panhead's Supercharger beer is one of the best new beers to come out of Wellington and indeed New Zealand in a fair while. Indeed, their range is pretty handy - we suggest you try their hoppy Vandal or APA. 

But back to the Supercharger, the beer that won the New Zealand Best Beer award in 2015. 

It's an absolutely drinkable beer and one that has few pretensions about it - its popularity is so much so that beer brewers are starting to clone it.

We found it at Wagon Brewing Co who sell a clone kit of the beer. 

Te Aro Valley also do a pretty handy copy of the beer too (check out their Obligatory wort while you are at it).  


This clone recipe is intended for your standard 23 litre beer batch.

Malts for the Supercharger clone




4.6 Kg - Gladfield Ale Malt (All Grain Option)

200g - Gladfield Light Crystal Malt

250g - Gladfield Toffee Malt



or for the Extract with Partial Mash option:



1x Black Rock Amber Extract 1.7kg Can

1x Black Rock Light Extract 1.7kg Can

200g - Gladfield Light Crystal Malt (Steep)

200g - Gladfield Toffee Malt (Steep)

What hops does the Panhead need?


10g - US Simcoe Pellet @ 13% AA for 60 minutes boil

10g - US Centennial Pallet @ 8.5% AA for 30 minutes boil

20g - US Simcoe Pallet @ 13% AA for 10 minutes boil

10g - US Centennial Pallet @ 8.5% AA for 10 minute boil

30g - US Centennial Pallet @ 8.5% AA for 1 minute boil

30g - US Citra Pallet @ 13.9% AA for 1 minute boil

20g - US Simcoe Pallet @ 13% AA for 1 minute boil

70g - US Citra Pallet @ 13.9% AA Dry Hop @ 7 days

50g - US Simcoe Pallet @ 13% AA Dry Hop @ 7 days

50g - US Centennial Pallet @ 8.5% AA Dry Hop @ 7 days

Phew, that's a lot of effort!

Panhead's yeast: 


Use the standard and very reliable Safale-US-05.

Panhead describe their own beer as "being an all-American show with Centennial, Citra and Simcoe overwhelming your nose, kicking you in the taste buds and departing with more bitterness than a Palm Springs divorce."

So that's the challenge for you as the home brewer, can you brew to match to Panhead's lofty claim?
