Has anyone ever brewed the SNPA clone from Austin Homebrew and how close is it to the real thing? I've wanted to try SNPA for a while, but none of the local beer stores have it so I ordered the kit yesterday. I went with the dry yeast option since it is way too hot to be shipping liquid yeast and I need something that doesn't mind being a few degrees over 70 since I can only ferment at room temp (at least until SWMBO lets me get another fridge for brewing purposes only.....she'd have a cow if she came home to find my primary in the refridgerator).

SNPA has to be the most cloned US beer...probably because it's so good!

I'm trying to hold off drinking the rest of my SNPA clone until it's properly aged...I've got less than 12 bottles left...*sigh*.

Let us know what Austin Homebrew's recipe is...

I've heard that it is good, which is why I bought the kit without ever actually trying any. I'll let everyone know what the recipe is once I get it. I forgot to post above that I bought the mini-mash version. This'll be my first try at anything other than extract only.

The mini-mash looks like steeped grains to me. Do you have a grain bag? If not, how are you going to do the "mash"?

I've got a muslin grain bag left over from a brew that I thought I needed it for.

I ordered the SNPA AG kit from Austin HBS the other day. It'll be here on Wed. This will be my first AG attempt. Wish me luck! I've done four Austin HBS partial mash kits, with very good results. I used a five gal. cooler/ MLT. Just today I built a ten gal. cooler/MLT for the upcoming AG. I'll use the five for a hot water sparge tank.

Just dry hop any ale with some dirty underwear inside of a dirty sock for about 3 months and youll get thr right amount of hop flavor.

I got the stuff from UPS yesterday. I don't have the instructions in front of me right now, but here's what I remember.

6 lbs pale extract
2.5 lbs 60L
1/4 lb of something else (probably 2-row, i can't remember)
4 oz malto-dextrin for body
pearle, cascade, and nugget hops all whole (i don't remember the hopping schedule either)

After reading the instructions, the AHB mini-mash sounds a lot more like extract with steeped grains to me. If there isn't any 2 row in the grain bag, I'm going to get some before I begin brewing and add it in and do a real mini-mash with a sparge and the whole deal.

Ive been drinking alot of SNPA lately. Johnny Corinos has it on special. .99 cent drafts, and you get to take a free SN Summerfest pint glass home with you.

I may give this one a shot here soon, its starting to grow on me.
