Nierra Sevada (Session SNPA Clone)
 
2 Attachment(s)
I named it Nierra Sevada because it is essentially an SNPA clone recipe that I tried to explain to some friends and after a few pints of one of my other homebrews, "nierra sevada" was as close as I could get to pronouncing it.
Sierra Nevada Clone Recipe, SNPA Clone
This is a scaled down ABV version (My First 10-gallon batch) and will yield a nice session APA that is between 4.0-4.5%. I'll post results and pics when we have the final product.

1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM)
2.00 oz Pearle [6.30%] (70 min)
2.00 oz Cascade [7.00%] (10 min)
1.00 oz Cascade [7.00%] (5 min)

Tasting Notes: This turned out absolutely fantasic. I hit 4.7% and the taste is slightly less malty than the orignal but the essence of grapefruit is just perfect. I've served it to several non-homebrew friends who do like to try different beers and they agree that it is a fantastic beer. Not a dead-on clone because of the lower malt level, but extremely close. The color is dead on and the bitterness just right. I did a 10-gallon batch . One five gallon keg has only been on the gas for 9 days and already near perfect carb level. The second fiver is sitting in a keg in the basement conditioning naturally (1/2 cup priming sugar). This is a definite brew-over.

After 36 hours patienly waiting I saw the airlock gurgling this morning on the Nierra Sevada batch.

Brewed this one up in a 5gal batch on Sunday afternoon, hit my numbers on the mark (1.046OG). So i'm happy I've got my procedure dialed in. This is my 5th AG batch and my 6th batch overall.

Pitched a pint of washed Notty yeast I had in the fridge w/o a starter. This is the first time I've tried a direct pitch of washed yeast without rejuvinating it with a starter. I was quite nervous about it monday when I got home from work and didn't see any fermintation happening yet. The fermentor is in my basement and was reading a temp of about 68 degrees, so I expected a slow start but not a 36 hour delayed start.

I plan on dry-hopping 1oz when I rack to secondary, so I dont have any trub in the keg when i rack. I think that will help with the clarity.

Looking forward to downing some pints of this one. Already have some "volunteers" to help with the taste testing.

Thanks for the recipe. I'll report back as we complete the various stages of this brew.

tried out a bottle that was bottled 12/12/12, and oh my it is delightful.

Here is the aftermath of it paired with Fish and Chips. It is no coincidence that I'm the last one to leave the table.



Will be adding this brew to the rotation!

Thanks BM!

Tapped this a few days ago. I brewed with cascade and dry hopped in the keg with citra. SWMBO and I are enjoying it a lot.
