Let us know! I'm brewing a version that is close to Mutilated1's.

One of the things I remember loving about Sweetwater was the great mouthfeel. It's not sweet, but it's richer in the mouthfeel than other APAs, if I remember right. (The only time I've had it was in Februrary in Florida) So, I'm going to use some washed Denny's Favorite 50 yeast to see if I can recreate that mouthfeel.

kegged my first attempt at 420 this evening and the sample I pulled from the carboy was great.

I'm thinking about giving this a go! Had some 420 last night and did a search and found this recipe. Any others in the last year or so brewed this?

Yes, I brewed a variant of this last year and it was one of the best beers I've made so far. I've had 420 and liked it, but I've never tried them side by side to compare. My version was a partial mash (152F for 45min) with:

1 1/2 lbs. Munich
1 lb. American 2-row
1 lb. Vienna
1/2 lb. Crystal 60

and enough light liquid malt extract to bring it to an OG of around 1.050. Used Columbus hops for bittering and Cascade for flavor/aroma to about 40 IBUs Tinseth or 64 IBUs using the Rager formula! I'm not sure which one is most accurate, but it wasn't TOO hoppy or bitter.

I used Danstar Nottingham yeast and probably fermented in the mid-high 60s (I didn't write it down). Hope it goes well!

Cool sounds good. Want to do an All Grain Batch though.

All grain should be basically the same recipe, except drop the LME and add enough 2-row in your mash so the OG of your wort ends up around 1.050. Good luck!

I am looking to brew this as my first PM brew. How much water did you mash with?
