Can you Brew It recipe for Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale
 
This is based on the rebrew which was deemed "cloned."

All recipes are (unless otherwise specified): 6 gallons post-boil, 70% efficiency, Morey for color, 15% evaporation, 7.27 gallons preboil, Rager IBU, and most hops are in grams not ounces. Most, if not all recipes are primary only (no secondary).

If you brew this, please reply with your results for discussion.

OG 1053
42 IBU

90 min boil

5.23kg Pale Ale Malt
400g crystal 75
90g carapils

28g cascade 6%AA at 85m
28g cascade at 30m
28g cascade at 5m
28g cascade at 0
21g cascade dry hop

WLP002

Mash at 149F

Add gypsum

Ferment at 65F, raising to 72F after 4 days

Discussion notes:
The base malt is specifically Great Western Pale Ale Malt, which was noted to have a large impact on the flavor.

Now if I could just get some of that great water they have up there...

Thanks for the recipe. I'll likely brew this one near the end of june.

No doubt. They definitely have an advantage with that water.

I frequent their brewery, yes their water is great. I just don't reccomend drinking the city water from Bend-tastes very nasty compared to my well out here in the Willamette Valley!

Bend water is well water,, just not from THAT side of the hill, :D
its strange tho,, I live 15 miles north of Bend in Redmond and are water is hard like 220ppm and bend's is much softer .. Redmond water is also city well water but from a different aquifer

Is gypsum a necessity for this brew?

Don't think they gave an SRM.

Preboil gravity is just a function of the amount of sugar in a volume of wort:

6 gallons at 1053 equals 318 gravity points (6x53)

318 gravity points spread out over 7.27 gallons equals approximately 1044 (318/7.27 = about 44).

Make sense?

It all depends on your water. You could still make a good beer without it, but to truly clone it, I think the gypsum would be helpful.
