Default Southern Tier Hop Sun ?? on dry hopping

Wow. First time I had it this weekend. Very tasty. A hopped american wheat with a minute lemon hint. Anyone tried to clone? Here is link to their site. http://www.southerntierbrewing.com/beer_7.htm It lists the bill. Anyone familier enough with dry hopping to make some recommendations. I want to do a batch on Friday and think I can get close with everything else but the dryhopping - no experience there at alll.

Just got turned on to Southern Tier and have been pretty impressed with their lineup so far. I really dig that they list the ingredients and type of yeast right on the bottle.

My brewing partner made one on Memorial Day... I'll try to get the recipe. It turned out real nice...

EDIT: Here it is....

Quote:
I'm pretty sure that Southern Tier uses Centennial not Columbus... and I did not dry hop - because I hate pellet hops now (it's official).

7 lbs. 2-row Pils
3 lbs. Wheat Malt
.5 lbs. Crystal Malt 20°L
.5 oz. Columbus (Pellets, 12.2 %AA) boiled 60 min.
1 oz. Columbus (Pellets, 12.2 %AA) boiled 15 min.
1 oz. Columbus (Pellets, 12.2 %AA) boiled 5 min.
Yeast : White Labs WLP001 California Ale info

Reason: added recipe

I'll post recipe in the next few days. Put into keg last night and it lasts and looks very close to the hop sun. Anyone had the Uber Sun. It's their imperial hopped wheat. Might me a little to crazy for me to spend $8 on a 22 oz, but would if anyone else liked

Default recipe

sorry for the delay, but here it is. Pretty simple.

5.25 lbs 2 row pale
3.125 lbs wheat
.5 lbs 60 crystal

Mashed at 153 for 90 minutes

60 minute boil
hops schedule
60 minutes - .80 oz 8.9aa Centennial
30 minutes - .35 oz 8.9aa Centennial
5 minutes - .5 oz 8.9aa Centennial

Yeast - Wyeast American Wheat 1010 starter from washed yeast

Dry hopped in 2nd with .90 oz 8.9aa Centennial

O.G. 1.047 (spot on Southern Tier website!!) Forgot to take F.G., but made 3-4 wheats with similar grain bills, same equipment and same washed yeast and all finished between 1.010-1.012

Very tasty, especially on a hot day!! Love the centennial flavor.

I think I am going to brew this again this weekend, I drank half my keg this last week!! I think i am going to add some lemon zest to this one though. Not much, probably just a few teaspoons. Let me know if anyone makes this and their results.

Finally got my hands on some more Sun Hop tonight. I didn't remember and was suprised it was very clear. Thinkin they might filter thiers. Next batch i will add some irish moss and crash cool before going into keg. Also, mine has a little bit more hop taste. I like the stronger hop flavor, but if you are going after an idential clone, i suggest knocking back the dry-hop to around the .75oz range! Other than that, think it is pretty close! Enjoy!
