Default Stone Pale ale clone reviews

I would really like to make a Stone Pale ale clone, I have the recipe from BYO magazine. My question is how close to the real deal is this recipe? Has anyone here tryed it and conducted a taste test?

I've done the Stone IPA several times from the same magazine. It's dead on. I would trust the other ones would be, too. They're straight from the brewer's mouth.

Thanks for the response. I'm making a Honey ale this Sunday and plan to make the Stone Next week. Hope it turns out nearly as good as the Stone Pale ale.

Can you post that pale ale recipe? I seemed to have missed that issue.

Hey Chris, I'm 2 weeks in on 2 5gal. batches of this Stone IPA recipe. How is it?? I'm dying to know how close it is to the real deal.

I have a real hard time believing they use the fuller's strain to ferment their beers. I'm almost certain they use a strain that attenuates more than WLP002. JZ suggested using WLP007 or equivalently the Wyeast 1098. Plus their beers don't have any of the super malty character that the fuller's strain gives.

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't read the introductory remarks in the magazine. Anyhow, I'd use WLP002 in arrogant bastard but as for the other beers, I'd follow their alternate suggestion of using WLP005.

The beer always turns out great. A friend of mine brewed the same recipe and had the real thing next to. He was giving samples to people of both and they couldn't tell them apart.

For the record, I use WLP007.

Did you use the AG or extract recipe? Being pretty new still not sure if I'm ready for AG.

AG. Read into it. It's not that hard.
