This is my second batch and i decided to a Sierra Neveda colne. The receipe called for:

10lbs of 2 row
.75 lb of Caramel 60

.75 oz of Chinook (45min)
.75 oz of Perle (20min)
2 oz of Cascade (0 min)

Safale us05

However when I got my wort to boil I accidently put my 2oz of Cascade in. Realizing this after the fact I just figured that this will be my bittering hops and will need to readjust my hop schedule accordingly. So next I put .75oz of Chinook (45min) (correctly). Lastly I used German Perle in the last 2 min of the boil as my finishing hops + 1 teaspoon of Irish Moss (missed the timing on that one too).

Is this going to my beer tase bad?
Is it going to be anything like a Sierra Nevda?

I doubt it will taste bad, i put this is beersmith and looks like your bitterness will be on the high-end with less hoppiness than the recipe calls for but should still be ok, you could try dry hopping it. I am a novice so, this is my un-educated guess

I think that it will be pretty bitter, and certainly won't be a clone of SNPA. Who knows, you may stumble onto something that you love. One thing I would suggest is possibly dry hopping it to get some more Flavor and Aroma in there. Maybe with 1-2oz's of Cascade if you have it, or you could do a blend of Chinook and Cascade. Hope it turns out well for you.

Thanks for your insight and ideas.

So still being new to this this is what I will do.

After 2 weeks I will rack over to a secondary and place 2oz of cascade in a nylon bag and place that in the secondary for another 2 weeks.
Then bottle the beer and wait 2 weeks. Then we shall see

Another question: Beersmith says to use 4.42oz of sugar when bottling, I was thinging on using 5oz will that make much of a difference? I don't want any bottle bombs.

I used to ignore priming calcs and prime with 5 OZ corn. My last 2 batches were waaaay over carbed. Finally figured out that the last of the jet dry had found its way out of the dishwasher. I use the dishwasher sanitize cycle to pre sterilize the bottles the night before. Now I use Mr. Malty carb calculator, Just plug in the style, and the sugar source batch size and batch temp and the priming quantity pops out the other end. FYI, my over carbed bottles were not overpressurized. Open a bottle and still get a little cart fart. Still trying to get my head around that.

I think your plan is a good one. You should be good with 4.5-5oz of priming sugar, it just depends on how many volumes of carbonation you want in your beer. I carb all my beers to 2.5 volumes. When I bottled I always used about4.5oz of Corn sugar, give or take.

For style, technically your out of the Pale Ale range, just based on the IBU's, but that's just according to the spec's of the beer. I calculate your IBU's to be at 96, based on an OG of 1.055. But it really depends on what it tastes like, if it tastes like a Pale Ale, then it's a Pale Ale.

I was thinking about re-using the yeast cake left in the bottom in my fermentor to brew another beer. I was thinking about doing the Sierra Neveda colne correctly this time or possible a Bells Oberon Clone.

Do you see any problems with this?

People have a lot of success doing that, but you don't need the whole thing. I would suggest just using 1/2 to 1 cup of the cake for your next brew, depending on what your OG will be.

Just get the cake mixed up real well, then pour off what you need into a sanitized container. Then clean and sanitize your fermenter, Rack your wort and pitch the yeast. You should be good to go.

Sounds like Good Beer to me. Might be a little off from Sierra Nevada, but it will be all your own and still BEER.

How about you tell us how it comes out?
