Does anyone have an extract recipe that is close to Sierra Nevada's pale ale? The first few times I had it I was not that impressed but I have had a few more lately and it's really growing on me.

Thanks, I found the link. Just out of curiosity how much difference in flavor would there be if I used Nottingham in place of the California or American Ale yeast?

Probably not too much, especially if you can ferment in on the cool side. Nottingham gets weirdly fruity over 70 degrees. If you want to use dry, I'd recommend using S05 in place of the American ale yeast.

I made a SNPA clone partial mash and it has been my best beer to date.

5 lb. Extra Light DME
2.5 lb. 2-row
10 oz. crystal 60L
WLP001 fermented at 63-65

1 oz perle @ 60
1 oz cascade at 15
0.5 oz cascade at flame out
0.5 oz cascade dry hopped

It's a beer I would like to have always on tap in the keezer year round.
