Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone from BYO
Hi There,

I want to give the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale clone, shown on the BYO web-site (http://www.byo.com/recipe/708.html), a try. But there seeme to be some discrepancies:

- the boil times for the hops shown in the ingredient list doesn't match the times given in the receipe
- How much is the boil volume? Is it really just 1.5 gal water with the LME. This would bring me to 17 IBU on the Perle. If it would be 5 gal, it would be 67 IBU for the Perle.

What are my target IBUs for that beer. I usually do full wort boils and want to adjust my hops.


DeRoux's Broux 12-22-2005 01:53 PM

according to the SN web page, it's 37 IBU's too. add hops at 60, 15, and 0 min as per the directions/ingredients list says for the grain/extract recipe. is it the BYO issue May-June 2005? it's all there......

you want to boil as much of the 5 gallons as possible. you'll steep your grains, sparge the grains w/ hot tap water into the kettle. then add as much water as possible, heat to boil, turn off heat, stir in extract, and return to boil, then follow hop additions.

ah, just looked at the link. different than the magazine recipe. want me to type it up?????

37 IBUs? I already find 28 IBUs (in my home brew pale ales) pretty bitter and I like the taste of SNPA. I'll adjust the hops to get close to that IBU value. And I'll check SN for more info. I never thought that can can find IBU values on the breweries web sites

That would be nice, Thanks.

yep, some, but not all brewery web pages have a lot of info. SN is one that gives out a good bit of info on their brews.

Well, this is indeed quite different than the one on the web-page. Luckily, I already modified the (other) recipe to use LME and DME and also bought additonal 2 row for the mini mash.

DeRoux's Broux, Thanks for the effort and Merry Christmas.

hey, no problem. that's what we're here for.

you have a Merry Christmas too!

I made this clone a few months ago, and was it ever close. Very good beer. Course......its all gone now.......:)

DeRoux's Broux 12-23-2005 09:16 PM

i did too (the all grain version) and it went pronto!

Tony 12-23-2005 09:42 PM

I just picked up grains to make a clone of SNPA myself, and cant wait.

Dude 12-23-2005 11:01 PM

I did one too--it was like my second AG brew. It rocked. I think mine came out at around 45 IBUs though.
Lake Walk Pale Ale was born from that BYO recipe!
