Default SN pale ale dry hopping question...

I bought the SN pale ale clone kit from AHB. I also ordered some Amarillo pellet hops that I am planning on dry hopping with. Would this be a good idea or should I just leave them out.

The hops used in the kit are 1 oz perle for 60 mins, 1 oz cascade last 15, and .5 cascade at 0 mins.

According to Sierra Nevada the hop schedule should be
.2 Oz Magnum - 60 min
.7 Oz Perle - 60 Min
1 Oz Cascade - 15 Min
.75 Oz Cascade - 0 Min
.75 Oz Cascade Dryhop for 1 week after you transfer from primary
I have made this beer at least 10 times and this hop schedule will get you exactly the flavor of SN Pale Ale
Grains
9 lbs - Pale Malt
.7 Lbs Crystal 60
.5 lb Dextrine Malt - optional if you like a little more head
Mash at 153 60 min

No dry hopping necessary for a SN Pale Ale clone.

SNPA is dryhopped with cascades... Follow the recipe in this thread, it's the BYO Clone recipe and it's spot on

In summary:

SNPA is dry hopped (Edit: Actually, it's not)...but since you're using a different hop, you won't produce an exact clone of SNPA...so if you're trying to clone SNPA you need to use Cascades instead of Amarillo...but dry hopping with Amarillo can produce a nice effect and is perfectly fine for an APA, so if you're trying to produce something smilar to but slightly different from SNPA go for it....but you also don't HAVE to dry hop if you don't want to and you'll still have a good APA

In other words, do it if you want to. Or don't. Either way, you're not going to screw up anything.

I don't believe SNPA is dry-hopped. Use a couple of ounces at flame out, and steep for 30 minutes before cooling, and see what that does.

Amarillo is not used in SNPA. It will not hurt, but it will not taste like SNPA.

I used the same recipe without dry hopping and I thought it was identical to snpa

SNPA is dry hopped with whole cone cascade hops. A simple visit to their website will confirm that fact. According to BYO, the homebrewer should use the freshest cascade hops available for dry hopping a SNPA clone. Do the research, it's all there.

And SNPA is bittered w/ Yakima magnum and peril hops. Cascade is used for flavor and aroma only. Amarillo hops will give you good beer, they're great finishing hops. But they won't give you anything close to SNPA.
