Default Deschutes Red Chair NWPA

Does anyone have an extract or partial mash clone recipe for the 2011 (or even 2010) Red Chair NWPA? Or even a conversion from all grain to one of the other methods? I've seen several all grain recipes but have not brewed one and am not confident of the process just yet.

Deschutes posts all their beers as "home brew" versions on their website, its its ingredients only, no times, temps, or weights; and they're for all grain, which I don't think I want to do at this time.

Thoughts or recipes anyone?

My LHBS offered out this clone for Red Chair. It's not exact, but it's pretty close.

Extract with grains, 5 Gallon

OG 1.060
FG 1.016
5.9%
64 IBU

7 lbs Briess Pilsen LME
.5lb Munich Malt 10L
.5lb Crystal 20L
.5lb German Pilsner
.5lb Carastan Malt

1.75oz Centennial 60 minutes

2 oz Cascade 15 minutes
1.75oz Centennial 15 minutes
Irish Moss 15 minutes

.5oz Cascade 5 minutes

Safale 04 Whitbread Ale Yeast

.5oz Cascade dry hop -7 days-
.5oz Centennial dry hop

Steep grains at 150 for 30 minutes in 2.5 gallons of water. Sparge with 2 gallons. You know the drill.

This is great!! Thank you!

I have a quick question about the recipe... Is dme and lme equal? Like, if I can't get briess pilsner lme will 7lbs briess pilsner dme be the same?

No, DME & LME are different. You will need more liquid malt. I don't know the equations off the top of my head (or the bottom for that matter), use one of the bazillion homebrew calculators or ask your LHBS. Good luck. I'd have an IV of Red Chair if I could. Definitely one of my top 5 favorites.

I was just, in a snarky fashion, pointing out that the clone recipe included all the ingredients listed on the website. The amounts I listed were from a recipe from my lhbs, not the Deschutes website.
