This is roughly what I got from a magazine clone recipe a while back. Their house yeast is different but I think this came out slightly better except that it seemed to need a bit more hop bitterness.

6G recipe
13lb maris otter
11oz crystal 80
Cascade 5%AA 74g @ 60min
Cascade 5%AA 50g @ 15min
Cascade 5%AA 50g @ 1min
Cascade 5%AA 28g dry hop
WLP013 London Ale

From the looks of it its just Crystal 60L and Marris Otter. You could just drop some light or extra light DME into BeerSmith and add some Crystal and Marris Otter for flavor. Bam, there's your clone.

I found this picture of their grain schedule when searching the forum (credit to Alamo_Beer):

now I guess my other question will be in the hops and the addition times...also is this an extract or AG?

sorry for the additional questions, I am not an expert on recipes, only on my own mistakes :-)

Extract.

Saint Arnold's Website says the OG is 1.061.

It says the IBU is around 60. I know for a fact they use strictly Cascade hops in their IPA. Its all on the website: http://www.saintarnold.com/beers/elissa.html

I tossed this together, though I haven't personally tried it out... it would be my best bet at a Elissa IPA clone in extract form.

7.00 lb       Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM)         Dry Extract  87.5 %

1 Pkgs        English Ale (White Labs #WLP002)          Yeast-Ale
I drank an Elissa IPA at the new brewery and it tasted amazing. The cascade came through very nicely. Its definitely a beer you want to drink as fresh as possible. In fact, I liked the cascade hops so much that I used them for about half of my hop schedule in my IPA.

I have been racking my brain over what yeast they use. They have said in numerous articles that the yeast strain they use is from a major yeast bank, but they won't tell what strain. They filter all of their beers, so harvesting yeast from a bottle is near impossible, but I would love to get some...

If you want some more direction drop me a PM.
