According to the website:

5.0% abv
35 IBU

Uses 4 hops, but uses Amarillo hops for aroma, likely as the dry hop.

Another website said:

Quote:
Twilight Ale is a straw-colored ale with a vigorous hop essence and a subtle, wafer-like body that complements the flavor of this special seasonal brew. It is a unique blend of four hops and malts: Cara-Pils and Carastan malts with the late addition of whole flower Amarillo, Cascade and Tettnang hops.
I wonder if there might be a little biscuit malt in it as well.

Here is what I came up with on BeerTools. I love this beer and its the only hop forward beer my wife likes. I pick up Amarillo and Tettanger in the aroma more than Cascade, so the Cascade is at 30 for flavor. Deschutes uses Horizon and/or Magnum for bittering in many other beers, so I figured Magnum would be a good choice. They use English Ale yeast for most brews, so I would go with Wyeast 1968 or WLP 002. For a drier finish you could use American Ale yeast too. I would mash at 152-153 for a decent mid-range body. I use whole hops, so this recipe is formulated as such.

Original Gravity: 1.051
Terminal Gravity: 1.012
Color: 6.89
Alcohol: 5.0%
Bitterness: 35 IBU

Ingredients:
9.5 lb 2-Row Brewers Malt
0.5 lb Carapils®/Carafoam®
0.5 lb Carastan 30-37
.4 oz Magnum (14.5%) - added during boil, boiled 60 min
.4 oz Cascade (7.2%) - added during boil, boiled 30 min
.5 oz Tettnanger (4.5%) - added during boil, boiled 15 min (Whirlfloc)
1 oz Amarillo (9.3%) - added during boil, boiled 5 min
1 oz Amarillo (9.3%) - added dry to secondary fermenter

Hey guys, I am looking forward to trying this recipe.

Has anyone brewed this yet?

I was thinking about using WLP023 due to the fruit/honey notes, which is not in the commercial version but I thought that might taste good.

Any thoughts?

Kevin, I brewed a beer with only Amarillo as a late hop with Wyeast 1882, which one might consider a close relative to WLP023, thinking that any fruity esters would compliment that hop. I thought it turned out well and dropped rather clear. I used 3.5 oz/5 gallon in one 15 minute addition.

Thanks.
I kind of like the idea of the late hop addition, I think I may also dry hop an oz or so with 1/2 oz of Tett maybe(for spiciness and because I have some lying around)

I'm looking to brew up a Twilight clone. Figured I'd resurrect this thread to see if anyone has attempted it yet.

I really want to give this recipe a shot, but I am still in the extract brewing stage, and, for that matter, new to brewing altogether. This is one of the better summer ales out there, in my oppinion, and I would like to have it ready for the season. What would be a good extract recipe equivalent to this? Here is what I am thinking (please go easy, this is my first shot at a recipe conversion):

Same weight of carapils and carastan, but use as steeping grains
6.33 lbs of Briesse Pilsen DME
same hopping procedure, and Wyeast 1968

Any thoughts?

Also, what would the conversion be for pellet hops? I can't seem to find Magnums in whole form, even though I live in the hop capital of the US...go figure.
