You should be able to build and eventually tweak a yellow snow clone off of something like this.

OK, but what is the extract equivalent of:

90% Pale
8% Carafoam
2% Melanoiden

OK, this is my guess:

Extract:
Munton's Light Dry Extract 8 lbs

Steeping grains:
Briess 2 Row Carapils 0.8 oz
Weyermann Melanoidin 0.8 oz

hops:
Amarillo Pellets 2 oz @ 60 mins
Amarillo Pellets 1 oz @ 30 mins
Amarillo Pellets 1 oz @ 10 mins
Amarillo Pellets 1 oz @ dry hopped

Yeast
Wyeast Labs Pacman - Private Collection

On the right track?

Now That I think about it, carapils and Melanoidin aren't really steeping grains are they?

yeah that's on the right track. I didn't run the numbers but just make sure that your target OG is close to that of Yellow Snow. I think those malts do need to be mashed. So maybe toss in a pound of 2 row to get the enzymes. Hold it at about 150-155F for 30 minutes. A mini mash is similar to steeping...

If you don't want to do a mini mash you could do something like this instead. It is my extract IPA based on Jamil Zainasheff's "Hoppiness is an IPA."

You can take out the Cascade and put in Amarillo if you'd like to be closer to Yellow Snow. This Cascade recipe is ridiculously hoppy (cuz I like it that way) so feel free to tone it down a bit toward what you posted above. It might not taste like Yellow Snow but it should be pretty damn good. You could also use Rogue's Pacman yeast instead of the Safale Dry US-05 but I doubt you'd taste the difference.

OK, here is my next draft of the recipe. Comments?

Extract:
7 lbs Extra Pale Liquid Malt Extract

mini mash grains:
˝ lb Crystal 20L (in place of Yellow Snows original recipe that calls for 2 row pale)
˝ lb Carapils® (dextrine malt)
˝ lb Melanoidin

Heat to 150-155* for 1/2 hour in 2 quarts of water. Then sparge with an additional quart and a half of 150* water through a strainer.

add to brew pot, add extract and begin boil

hops:
Amarillo Pellets 2 oz @ 60 mins
Amarillo Pellets 1 oz @ 30 mins
Amarillo Pellets 1 oz @ 10 mins
Amarillo Pellets 1 oz @ dry hopped

Ferment with a US-05 Dry Ale Yeast

THis is how it calculates out. Pretty close except maybe a little high on the OG.


OG 1.068
FG 1.016
IBU 71
SRM 11
ABV 6.7
