I posted this with some other info in the AG forum, but this is probably where it belongs. Any help is greatly appreciated!!
I'd like to do a Clone of my beloved Boulevard Pale since I can't get it out here in Ohio, but haven't seen any recipe's out there. In a perfect world I'd rather do the Boulevard Single Wide IPA but I'd better steer clear and save some cash should things go bad wrong! Here's a listing off Boulevard's website, can anyone help me craft a recipe from this?? I've been playing with the numbers in Beersmith but playing is the operative word. Pretty sure I'm restriced to crystal 80l etc. malts and not the ones listed on the website (Caramunich & Caravienne malts) because of the grains avaiable at my LHBS.
STYLE: American-style Pale Ale
INGREDIENTS: Pale, Caramunich & Caravienne malts. Magnum, Cascade, Simcoe & Fruggles hops.
STARTING GRAVITY: 12.2 degrees Plato
ALCOHOL: 4.2% by weight, 5.4% by volume
BITTERNESS UNITS: 31 IBUs
AVERAGE EBC COLOR: 20
I may be naive but I make up for that with inexperience!!
