Default sierra nevada clone question

Hi I have never tried sierra nevada pale ale because I cant get it in canada Where I am. However the clone recipe on BYO sounds like its a good beer, id like to make it but I was wondering if the hops additions were correct?
in promash im getting 73 IBU's. is that how hoppy this beer is?

• 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

According to their website, the beer has 37 IBUs, though it tastes to me as if it has less.

Bittering hops are Perle and Magnum. I did one with only Perle and it turned out bad. The bitterness was way to harsh and lingering. So far I blame this on the Perle hops.

YEP. Perle = harsh.

I get those numbers too. The only thing I can figure is that those amounts are for a partial boil? Hopefully the extract experts can chime in here and explain that. I think you use more hops in a partial boil. Something to do with utilization.

Keep the amounts of flavoring and aroma hops and adjust your bittering hops to get to 37 IBU. You can also search for SNPA here and you should find some better clone recipes.

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.

i made this exact recipe once, but i used an aluminum pot instead of the ancient roman lead-lined vessel... came out terrible, i feel terrible, and i have awful memory problems now... i think it was the aluminum.
