in a few weeks? where to get the hops? seems like all three varieties are damn near impossible to find! Then again, you probly have a huge stock of hops hidden somehwere.

like i said, i just want something "to style"...i'm not brewing the exact recipe.

i do not have any of those hops, but i do have quite a stock. i also have a LHBS with a large supply if i wanted (they have all three hops available according to their website)

i think i might go with northern brewer for the bittering, tho...we'll see. i'll start working on the recipe when i get home

Stone 11th Anniversary Ale Recipe

Grain Bill:

90% pale malt

5% 60°L Crystal

5% Weyermann Carafa III Special


OG target is 20.5°P (1.082 SG) Terminal Gravity target is 4°P (1.016 SG)


Hops:

Bittering at start of boil: 100% Chinook

Flavor hops added at end of boil or whirlpool: 50/50 blend of Simcoe and Amarillo

Target 120 IBU’s.

Ferment with good ale yeast. We used our house yeast.

Dry-Hop with 50/50 blend of Simcoe and Amarillo, use LOTS! (we used 1 ½ pounds per barrel).

Good luck and enjoy. Post up if you brew it, let us know how it is.
I'm a huge fan of Stone, and since I can't get their special releases in NH I would love to try and reproduce this one. I was able to pick up the XI Anniversary this fall when I was in MA and it was fantastic!

I've been playing with an extract interpretation, how does this look?

5 gal batch

Malts:
9 lbs Light DME
0.5 lbs Crystal 60L
0.5 lbs Carafa Special

Hops:
1 oz Chinook @ 60 min
0.75 Amarillo & 0.75 Simcoe @ 10 min

I'm just wondering how much Amarillo and Simcoe would qualify as "LOTS!" for dry hopping? Also, I think I'll have a hard time finding Simcoe, can anyone recommend a substitute? Magnum perhaps?

i read that cascade and centennial can be "substitutes" for simcoe. Not sure if it will be the same or not but could still make a very tasty beer!

When I ran the numbers quickly, based on the ratio given in the original recipe, above, I came up with roughly 2 oz. of each for dry hopping.

Here is what I worked up for an All Grain with Pro Mash:

5.5 gallon batch

15.25 lbs 2 row
14 oz Crystal 60L
14 oz Carafa Special

75% efficiency
SG = 1.082

2.5oz Chinook (13% alpha) - 90 min
1 oz Simcoe (13% alpha) - 0 min
1 oz Amarillo (10% alpha) - 0 min
1 oz Simcoe (13% alpha) - dry hop
1 oz Amarillo (10% alpha) - dry hop

Dry hop might be a bit less than they use (1.5lbs at 1 bbl --> appx 4 oz for 5 gallon batch). But it should be close.

Plan to brew this one soon, will probably pitch on top of yeast cake from a pale ale brewed with WLP001, or I may try culturing their yeast, I bought a case of this and still have several bottles...

Tasted some of this a couple weeks ago. Awesome! And unique, from my experience. I'd gladly brew something similar.

They're pretty good about the Vertical series, here are the recipes;
