It's a decent Belgian IPA, I prefer the Raging Bitch. There's a whole Can You Brew It episode devoted to that beer.

It's the stone IPA recipe with a Belgian yeast strain. There are a bunch of threads debating which one, I believe consensus was it was one of WL strains that they used on another beer. Search and you should be able to find it.

Edit: actually, check out the similar threads at the bottom of this page

Hang on, I gotcha! It's EXACTLY the same grist as Stone IPA, fermented with WLP570.

You can read the whole story right from the horses's mouth (head brewer at stone) right here:

http://blog.stonebrew.com/index.php/...-untold-story/

Where he says they made the first cali-belgique just to make up some yeast for vertical Epic 08.08.08, which uses WLP570 as you can see here:

http://www.stonebrew.com/epic/Wca256c660276b.htm

The first post also mentions that instead of centennial late hops (in the IPA) cali-belgique uses chinook. I've taken the best clone recipe and made the substitutions for you here:

Single infusion 60 minutes at 153 degrees.

10.5# Pale
1# Munich
1# Crystal 20L

1 oz. Warrior 60 minutes
1 oz. Chinook 15 minutes
1 oz. Chinook 5 minutes

WLP090 or WLP007

O.G. 1.066
F.G. 1.010

Dry Hop with 1 oz. Chinook

That should get you about as close as humanly possible. Good luck!

This has the IPA recipe in 2008 addition of BYO direct from stone. Pretty close to the one above but no Munich and includes Centennial. They use Columbus to bitter now, so you could swap out the 90 minute additions for an equivalent edition of Columbus.

Edit: ah, I see from daksin's post that they don't use centennial in the cali-belgie

Any thoughts on fermentation temp? The BYO article with the Stone IPA clone suggests 68° F, but would the Belgian yeast dictate different fermentation temps?
