Recipes, you want recipes? I have several:
Here's my Sawtooth Clone:
Left hand Sawtooth Ale
1lb 40L Crystal
1/2 lb Victory (toasted)
3lbs Pale Extract
3lbs Munich Extract
1.5 oz Fuggle (45 min boil)
1.5 oz Golding (15 min boil)
1 oz Golding (end of boil)
Steep grains in water 15-20 minutes at about 155 degrees.
Remove and add malt extracts.
Bring to boil.
Total Boiling time 45 minutes.
Add 1.5 oz of fuggle at beginning of boil
Add 1.5 oz Golding when 15 minutes left in boil
Add 1 oz Golding at the end of the boil.
Let cool and pitch yeast.
If you keg: try substituting whole leaf hops for the 1 oz Golding and instead of adding it at the end of the boil, put it in a hop bag and throw it in the keg at kegging time. (of course you will want to boil the hops in a little water for a few minutes and add all the soup including the hop bag to the keg. This makes for a nice hop punch!
I've done this with a British ale yeast, and it's great- but I think your california yeast would really do the trick.
And Redhook ESB:
2 4# cans Alexander Sun Country pale malt
3/4# light crystal ~20l
1 oz centennial boil 60 min
1 oz tettnanger finishing
And my Dead Guy Clone is floating around here someplace. I've only done it with pacman yeast, but I think it'd be fine with the yeast you have.
