Kona, Fire Rock Pale Ale (AG Clone)
 
2 Attachment(s)

I’m not one to pat myself on the back but this is one spot-on clone of Kona’s Fire Rock Pale Ale.

As APA’s go, it’s still malty enough to really stand out as a very flavorful beer without overdoing the bitterness. I substituted Centennial for the Galena and dry hopped this batch with 1/2 Oz of Centennial for 7 days. That really gave it a nice “Whoosh” I was looking for.

This is maltier and more robust in flavor than SNPA in my opinion. If you love the hop flavor / aroma without the high bitterness, this is perfect.

Anyway, whether you like or don’t like Kona Pale Ale, this clone will get you dangerously close.

If it's any indication, all 10-gallons of this beer are now gone.

Brewed on December 27th.
Kegged on January 11th.
Tapped on January 20th.
Floated on February 13th.

Talk about drinkability.

Thankfully I bottled off a 12-pack.

This beer had the smoothest, chewiest taste and a rocky head that wouldn't go away.

I know what I'm doing next weekend.

Honey malt lends a nice sweetness to the beer.

Oh...and then there was this....

I like mine (BierMuncher's) way better. Kona's tastes like it's feremented too warm. Slight fusels and funky off flavors.

Pretty simple pine box from Michael's, $2 90mm computer fan, & a pack rare earth magnets online. I also had a low voltage (7.5V) charger I stripped to power the fan. I get about a 3/4 inch dimple in the wort, agitates enough for me. I love not having to go by & shake the thing all day.


Screws were covered with JB Weld for wood and sanded. Needs paint I think...

Where the fan and magnets meet the underside lid of the box.
