Its weird how every time they post a SNCA clone recipe it's different. I just picked one and went with it.

I did the same thing. I brewed mine a week and a half ago. My copy of BYO, with the SNCA clone recipe in it, arrived two days after I brewed. I used one of the recipes from this site and it was very close to the one in BYO. Mine will be "over"-hopped since I am using up all of the homegrown Cascade and Centennial that was in my freezer.

Here's the recipe I brewed that is currently in primary. I'll add the dry hops this weekend, two weeks after initial brew day.

6 gallons, 65% Efficiency, Mash Temp ~154
15 lbs. Marris Otter
1.5 lbs English Crystal 60
47 gms Chinook - 60 min
42 gms Homegrown Cascade - 15 min
21 gms Homegrown Centennial - 15 min
42 gms Homegrown Cascade - 5 min
21 gms Homegrown Centennial - 5 min
42 gms Homegrown Cascade - 0 min
20 gms Homegrown Centennial - 0 min
42 gms Homegrown Cascade - Dry Hop 7 days
21 gms Homegrown Centennial - Dry Hop 7 days
1.6 L starter of 1056.

It sounds like a lot of hops, but I've noticed my homegrown hops are milder than the store bought ones. Nonetheless, I'm hoping for a big hop flavor and aroma.

Not surprising that there's a lot of different clone recipes. Each year the SNCA is different. I think this years is a little milder in both the hop and malt dept. I like it a lot actually. Not at all like it was 10 years ago. Liked it then too....

Glad someone else said this--always been a fan, but this Year's batch seems a lot more mild!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Less mouthfeel this year, IMO.

I think it's a little less malty this year.

It seems a little lighter on the malt and the hops compared to previous years. I wonder how it is on tap this year...
