• 1.5 oz. Perle hops (8.2% alpha acid) for 60 min.
• 2.5 oz. Cascade hops (5.4% alpha acid): 1 oz. for 15 min., 1 oz. for 5 min., 0.5
oz. pellets (dry hopping).
any help would be great, thanks
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale has 37 IBU's, and does NOT dry hop.
Another brewer actually worked with one of the SN Brewmasters to formulate a 6 gallon all grain homebrew recipe. This is the recipe:
11.90 lbs. American 2-row
1.70 lbs. American Caramel 60°L
.4 oz. Yakima Magnum 60 min.
.5 oz. Perle @ 30 min.
1 oz. Cascade @ 10 min.
2 oz. Cascade @ Flameout
White Labs WLP001 California Ale
Mash Type: Single Step 153 for 60 minutes.
Mash-out 168 Timefor 15 minutes
I scaled this one down for 5 gallons, and also substituted Galena for Perle, and hit it dead on. This is one of my favorite recipes to brew.
