Enjoy brewing Sweetwater IPA and I have that down. Need to brew an AG for a friend of Stone IPA - have two recipes need advice. Which one would you brew and why ? Anyone brewing Stone IPA with another recipe, please post that........ In #1 (I use simple safeale for almost all my IPA/Wheat/Pale/Amber) likely wouldn't do that yeast in this recipe)
Thank You in advance. Jim

#1 Brew 365
All Grain Recipe - Stone IPA::: 1.063/1.010 (5 Gal)
Grain Bill

13 lbs. - 2 Row Pale Malt
1/2 lb. - Crystal Malt (10L)
1/2 lb. - Crystal Malt (20L)

Hop Schedule

1 oz - Magnum (75 Min.)
1 oz - Centennial - at Flameout
2 oz - Centennial - Dry Hop in secondary


White Labs California Ale Yeast (WLP001) - 1800 ml starter


Mash at 150 to 152 for 60 min.

The second one is from the BYO article in 2008 with clone recipes put together on the advice of Mitch Steele. In the paragraph right before the recipes he recommends WL 002 or 005.

I just kegged a stone clone. It was based on the byo except I added 1lb munich malt to mine. I did a 60 minute boil with columbus instead of magnum and perle. The other hop additions I used. Tasted it out of the fermentor today and it was damn good. Dry hopped for 10 days. I used s-05 yeast for mine. Cant wait for this one to carb up.

Stone changed their yeast for this beer from WLP002 to WLP007.

Go with something more like the second version. Also, this hop schedule gives me the appropriate amount of IBUs:

0.43 oz Magnum pellet @ 90 min
0.64 oz Perle pellet @ 90 min
2.0 oz Centennial pellet @ 15 min
1.0 oz Centennial pellet @ Dryhop 6 days
0.5 oz Chinook pellet @ Dryhop 6 days

4.5 total ounces hops seems very underwhelming for this beer. I like the idea of brewing this beer with 7 ounces total Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook. No Magnum or Perle. The commercial beer always tasted a tad sweet for me so I would also reduce the Crystal 15 to 3-4%, replace the lost amount with carapils, and mash in the upper 140's.

12 lb 2 row
.5 lb Crystal 10
.5 lb Crystal 20

1 oz Warrior @ 60 min
1.8 oz Centennial @ 15 min
1 oz Centennial @ 5 min
1 oz Centennial @ 0 min

1 oz Centennial Dry Hop 14 days

WLP001 yeast

This is what I used as my Stone IPA clone and it's very close. I've brewed it 4 times already, it's actually my "House Beer" now because all my friends love it so much. I tried using CTZ hops instead of Warrior for bittering once, but it changed the bittering character too much so I went back to Warrior. Warrior gives it that clean bittering taste that I pick up from original Stone IPA.

stryker, did you finish this clone?

I'm about to a.g. brew this clone and I'm planning on the #1 recipe you listed above. I already tried the extract recipe, and that batch is in bottles ready to be tested. Not expecting too much, but my expectations are much anyway. I recently started drinking Stone IPA and this beer is enough for me. I love it.

I'm curious what recipe/yeast you used and the results. I also plan to try Brett's recipe.

I found the BYO article that listed all the Stone recipes from the brewer (link above in answers). Even though there were various opinions above, I brewed directly from the article. The guys at my brew store always hand me S-05, b/c they are of the belief that for any american ale, S-05 is not only sufficient, cheaper, but desired - and these guys brew a lot, so I listen to them. Golden Ale, American IPA, Founder's Porter, Founder's Stout, Pale Ale, they are handing me S-05. You will not find that opinion to be universal on this website. I brewed this on 2.24 currently in carboy, still active fermentation after 6 days. OG 1.062. Recipe OG 1.065, so I'm pretty happy there. Dry hop tomorrow with chinook 1 oz ( recipe 0.5oz, this is the only thing I'm going to alter and the yeast),+ centennial 1oz. Will post again on this beer in approx 3 weeks. Keg tonight Bell's Oberon. Brewing tonight, Victory Summer Love (both of these last ones for the wife, gotta keep her happy too.....) Drinking tonight from manufacturer, Bottle Stone IPA, Bottle Local Brew = Hoppyum (great name eh) Good Luck

ps forgot crystal 15not available so used crystal 20 but a little less 12 oz crystal 20 instead of the intended 14 oz crystal 15

Couldn't resist pouring a glass tonight, it's only been on gas for 1.5 weeks so it's got some time but I think it turned out nice. Mine is on the left and the real one is on the right.
