My appologies for the delay in reply, but this recipe turned out amazing! It's been gone a while now, but I remember it well. Sooooo good. I have since gone AG and am looking forward to brewing this again AG. Thanks again Ed for another winner!

I needed the same thing and found the following:

Those may be identical, I hope they would but have not compared.

I just wanted to point out that this recipe is the Bee Cave IPA from EdWort's recipe drop down. Looks slightly different but most likely has to do with changes for the better.

I just brewed my version of this recipe the other day. Stone's website currently says they use Columbus, Chinook, and Centennial. I went with all Centennial, cause that's what I have. I don't care if it's an exact clone, I just wanted something in the ballpark. I can't wait to try it.

I just brewed this as well this past Saturday. I followed the recipe almost exactly except I'm going to dry hop with 2oz of centennial rather than 1. Seems to have turned out well and I'm excited to try some fermentation samples.

I've been drinking this for a couple of weeks. I brewed it with all Centennial, so it's def different. It came out very nice though, tons of grapefruit aroma/flavor. I picked up a bottle of the real deal to compare. Mine is a half shade darker. Stone has more hop aroma than mine. From the Stone, I'm getting a sweet, candy-like plum or berry flavor, and some definite honey notes. I actually like mine a little better, but next time I'll prob back off the 2 row by .5 lb, add .25 lb honey malt, and dry hop with 1.5 oz, possibly something more floral. I took pics of the comparison, I'll post them when I get them off the camera.

I finally uploaded the comparison pics.


Reason: Adding pics

Another late reply to this -- I haven't made this yet (on my list), but was also going to make with all centennial, as I just got alot of it. Personally, I think Stone IPA (the standard stuff) is a little light in color, so I think Edworts will be better. IMHO, a good IPA needs a little something darker/more malty to hold a substantial hoppiness than what Stone does in their standard IPA, which is lighter.

So what were you thinking to get more "floral"? Cascade?

Reading this thread, it seem alot of people are concerned about substituting something different for the "bittering" (60 minute boil) addition. Does that really make much difference, as long as the same IBUs are acheived?

Also, I reading through this thread, I don't think EdWort ever answered the total IBUs some people asked. Seems like one wouldn't get to the 70+ range with the recipe. Comment?

For more floral, yeah, I was thinking of Cascades.
As for bittering, I used brewing software (qbrew in linux) to figure out how much to use. The bitterness was dead on with the authentic Stone IPA. It doesn't look like I saved the file, or at least I can't find it, so I'm not sure how much I used, or what the calculated IBU was.

Also, I think most people are only substituting the bittering additions because of what they have on hand. Bittering additions do affect the flavor a little too, so changing it up can affect the final product a little.

Due to time restraints I was able to mash this for 90 min. but only able to boil about 75 min. Do you think this will be an issue? Everything else was pretty much right on. I did lose a little temp. in the long mash.
