I just did a SNPA clone, and it still has 1 more week to carb... I AM SOOOOOOO IMPATIENT!!!!! ME WANNA DRINKY DRINKY NOW!!!!!!!

MgMt_Home_Brew 05-08-2009 05:15 PM

Yeah I have had a SNPA clone in primary for 3 weeks now and I am going to dry hop it this weekend. I got my recipe from the BYO 150 commercial brew mag.

I am gona try to dry hop for 2 weeks so I have some more waiting to do :(

ndoe22 05-08-2009 05:47 PM

I brewed this yesterday. I have never dry hoped any beer. How long sould it dry hop? I am guessing 1 week primary, 11 days secondary and 3 days dryhop?

Just throw the dry hops in the secondary, then rack the beer into them. Leave them for 11 days then.

I just killed one of my 2 kegs of SNPA and it is definitely a crowd pleaser.

The Pol 05-08-2009 06:41 PM

This recipe is from the BYO 150 Clone issue as well.

Zulu 05-08-2009 08:44 PM

House beer for me and have brewed it 7 times now.

have a few colorful additions above the bar for it too.

Recipe is good , but I add in a lb of CaraPils Dex to up the mouthfeel a bit (more dextrines and also mash at around 155 - have an automated RIMS so it is accurate)

Good Luck

The Pol 05-08-2009 09:50 PM

I think I am going to brew it as is... except for the needed No Chill changes. Then, after the BJCP judge tells me how it compares to the IC chilled version, I may play with it.

CharlosCarlies 05-08-2009 11:43 PM


Just out of curiosity, how did your no chill haus ale turn out? Any particular reason for trying this other than simplifying the process a bit?
