I just recieved a kit from AHS but when I ran it through beer smith the IBUs were too low.

It calls for

1 oz of Perle 60 mins
1 oz Cascade 15 mins
.5 oz Cascade flame out
.5 oz Cascade dry hop

about a 19, also I thought SNPA used Magnum?

What if I do this

1 oz Magnum 60 min
1 oz cascade 20 min
1 oz cascade 5 min
.5 oz cascade dry hop

Close to 30, I think.

Any ideas, advice?

Always a good idea to refer to the actual beer when cloning. I always see weird SNPA clones all over the place, some with 60 IBUs and such.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

1.052, with 37 IBUs. Magnum and Perle for bittering, Cascade for finishing. Etc etc.

Biermuncher also has a clone, I think he said his is a bit low on the malt side and he doesnt use magnum either.

Nierra Sevada is what he called it. Keep in mind his a 10 gallon batch. I'm actually brewing this up tonight, but I'm going to swap out an oz of perle for however much magnum it needs to keep the IBUs close to the real beer.

Looks like the same recipie as far as hops schedule but when I plugged it into beersmith my IBUs were lower than what he states. (and still no magnum_

Do you have an inside tip? That looks about like what I was thinking... maybe a little perle at 60 too...

I'm excited to brew this tonight

It's also listed on page 32 of BYO's 150 Classic Clone Recipes. I'm kegging it today and was pretty tasty when I transferred to secondary. The one thing I did different was I used pellet Cascade in place of whole for dry hopping (it's what I had on hand).

No problem

I'd say it got a pretty good response from the forum community...
