Looking for a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone
Does anybody have a good Sierra Nevade Pale Ale Clone they have tried that is good?
.75lbs 60L crystal
1oz nugget 60mins
.5oz perle 15mins
1oz cascade 5mins
1oz cascade dryhop
It made a great beer.
There is a big thread on the Northern Brewer forum where a guy posted a SNPA clone. He said he had help from the SN brewmaster. It's a long but very interesting read.
Thanks for the thread seyahmit, Lots of good reading. I think I will try the extract version on page 2 submitted by don.
6.5 # Pale Malt Extract
1# 10L Crystal Malt
1/2 oz Columbus - 60 min
1 oz Cascade - 15 min
1 oz Cascade - 0 min
Yeast - Safale US 56 American (dry)
Steeped grain 1/2 hour at 155 deg
Pitched 7-6-06; to secondary 7-13; bottled 8-8
My SNPA is one of my all time favorites. It's a tad darker, but the taste is dead on. The kegs go WAY too quick.
For me, I use Galena instead of Perle, as it seems smoother to me. Perle seems to have a rough edge so to speak, and Galena is more smoother.
10 lbs. American 2-row
1.25 lbs. American Caramel 60°L
.40 oz. Yakima Magnum 60 min.
.50 oz. Galena 30 min.
1 oz. Cascade 10 min.
1 oz. Cascade 1 min.
White Labs WLP001 California Ale
I found a recipe that I am going to use that was put together by a guy with some help from Steve the head Brewer at Sierra Nevada. He actually wrote the hop schedule. It is an AG recipe for a 6gal 90 minute boil but I am going to tweak it for DME 5 gal batch with 3 gal 60 min boil. If anyone is interested in the recipe let me know and I will post it.
Well I saw someone requesting a SNPA clone on another thread so I thought I would post the recipe I used through some research on the web. On the Northern Brewer forum I found a guy that had an AG recipe that was put together with the help from the head brewer at SN. I just brewed this the other night 01/11/07 and is in my primary burping right now. I will transfer it to my secondary on Thursday. And just for the record SN does not dry hop like a lot of other SNPA clone recipes call out for.
