Default SN Celebration Ale Clone Recipe?

Looking for an AG SN Celebration clone recipe if anyone has something that they believe to be damn close. I am in love with this beer and want to make copious amounts of this year round. I did a search on google and the recipe data base and really didn't find anything that seemed to be a solid recipe.

I am particularly proud of this one, we did a good job.

Check out the color comparison:

Mine is on the right, the real SNCA is on the left.

Here you go. I have never brewed this (but I am very soon), but it is directly from a Brewing Network Show (Jamil Show- America IPA) and Mike McDole gave out this recipe. It is his standard IPA recipe, but is developed as a SN Celebration clone.

I would recommend listening to the episode, great brewing tips. I think I left out the mash hops since I recycle the spent grain for dog treats.

looks incredible "dude". I think I will go with your recipe I do have to ask though. I don't see a boil size associated with your recipe or a mash ratio. I seen that the wort size is 5.5 but that can't be the same as the boil size can it?

It's that time of year again. The celebration ale is off the shelves and my stock is dried up. So what's a thirsty guy to do? Brew his own, of course! So I've taken bits of recipes from here and there, and going off sierra nevada's own website, come up with a clone attempt that I hope gets me close to the real deal.

So from the sierra nevada website, here's what we know:

OG ~1.066
FG ~1.016
IBU 65

Malts: 2-row pale, british crystal
Hops: Chinook, bittering; cascade and centennial, finishing

So that gives us a good head start. From tasting the real thing, it's evident there's some chinook added late enough in the boil to add significant flavor, so in addition to the purely bittering addition, it needs a bittering/flavor addition. So lets say a little bit at 30 minutes. I also get a really nice caramelly maltiness that provides the perfect counterpoint to the hops. So I'm going to go a bit heavy on the crystal. Here's what I've come up with.

Another bit of info is from Dude's clone attempt's thread. His recipe targeted around 10 srm and his side-by-side picture was almost dead on. So I'll be aiming for that darkness.

5.5 gal batch

OG 1.066
IBU 65
SRM 10

11 lbs. 2-row pale
1.25 lbs. british crystal 55
0.25 lbs. carapils (the sierra nevada website doesn't list this is an ingredient but I'm taking a bit of liberty here)

1.25 oz. chinook @ 60
0.65 oz. chinook @ 30
1 oz. cascade @ flame out
0.5 oz. cascade DH
0.5 oz centennial DH

Using wyeast 1056 with a 1.5 L starter

Mashing at 152 for 60 minutes.

I've got a feeling this is gonna be really close. I get all excited just thinking about having a keg of celebration ale and being able to pull a pint anytime I like.

This one is getting brewed tomorrow!

I would add some Centennial at flame out too (SN site indicates such). Also, I used 12 oz British 75 and 4 of British 135 to get an SRM of 12 and still keep it pretty dry...

Hmm, I just checked again and you're right. For some reason I misremembered the site and thought it had cascade and centennial listed for "finishing" but nothing listed for dry hopping, so I figured the finishing could be both late boil and dry hop. I think I'll add an oz of centennial at flameout along with the cascade. Thanks for the info!

Wow- I kind of forgot about this beer! I have to brew it now. I have everything on hand, I think, so maybe I'll brew this up soon.

Brian, you have to give a complete report on how this comes out!

Oh I definitely will. I haven't been excited about a beer like this in a while. I think celebration ale could be my favorite american-made beer so if this is close, I'll be ecstatic.
