I see that this topic has been discussed before, but I don't think anyone has ever come up with a clone for Berkshire Brewing Company's Steel Rail EPA. Does anyone have a recipe that comes close or a kit recommendation? Unfortunately, I can't get this stuff in NY. Their site doesn't say what hops it uses only that it's 2-row pale malt.

I'm not normally a huge fan of pale ales because they're usually way too hoppy for my taste but I love this stuff (wish I didn't have to go to Mass for it!).

I was just curious and was thinking about doing the same. I found the ALL-GRAIN recipe elsewhere. I know this is old, but wanted to help out anyway:

11# US Pale 2 row malt
.5 oz. Northern Brewer pellet hops 6.5%
.5 oz. East Kent Goldings hops 6%
.75 oz. Willamette hops
White Labs American Ale WLP001

Mash single infusion at 155 deg.

.5 oz Northern Brewer pellet (60 minutes)
.5 oz Goldings pellet (45)
.75 oz Willamette pellet (15)

OG: 1.060
FG: 1.012
IBU: 32

sorry to resurrect an old thread but this is a beer i desire to attempt a clone and finding info on it is pretty scares. however the recipe posted above says 32 IBUs and the BBC website list it as 20 IBUs.

I wonder if the hop sched is still accurate.

I also wonder if they use any specialty grain. Anyone know anything about this beer???
