How did this turn out?
I'm getting back into HBT after a 5 year layoff and am looking for a good SNPA clone extract

While this recipe may be a good one, Red Hook ESB does not contain Chinook hops to my knowledge. My understanding is that the hops are Tettnang and Willamette.Here is an alternative recipe if you want a Red Hook clone. >> http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f64/captain-hooked-bitters-red-hook-esb-clone-29740/

Default Extract as opposed to all grain.


I'm still a rookie, can anyone recommend how to brew this with an extract?

Thanks,
Joe

dunleav1

this is an extract brew. don't be scared to have your homebrew shop crush some grains for you, and steep them before you biol. you'll get a much better result than just using dry malt extract or all liquid extract. color will be better and tase will be "fresher"

Sounds like a good way to start brewing to me. I started this way.

been poking around for ESB recipes and found this old (dead?) post. love Red Hook, and it has gotten GABF noise lately - gold in 09.

@Blender was right on the Chinook. Red Hook posts their stats on their site - here is a cut/paste:

Style: Amber
ABV: 5.8%
Malts: Pale, Caramel, Carapils
Hops: Alchemy, Willamette, Centennial, Crystal
Color SRM: 13
Bitterness Units: 28.0 IBU
Original Gravity: 13.75 degrees plato
