Hey Brewers,

SN Celebration Ale is one of my favorite beers and is off the shelf for a while. I was looking to brew a clone-ish beer to satisfy my thirst for it. I've used a recipe from Austin Homebrew, which I didn't think came close enough. I'm an extract brewer and I have chinook, centennial, and cascade hops which I have already and want to use. I plan on using dry yeast as well.

Any recipes would be much appreciated. Thanks.

As an extract brewer I would use a ex light DME for the malt. Steep 1 1/4 lbs of Dark crystal malt in 150 deg water for 30 mins. I would also use the 1056 Chico ale liquid yeast for the clone that's the same yeast used for Sierra. Use a fresh activator pouch or make a starter.

For a 5.5 gal pri batch

8 1/2 lbs ex-light DME
1 1/4 lbs dark crystal

About

25 HBU Chinook for 60 mins
22 HBU cascade for 15 mins

I'll need to check the HBU's from my recipe at home
The HBU's are calculated for a 3 1/2 to 4 gal partial boil
Dry Hop 1oz cascade after primary settles for 2 weeks

I just ordered a clone of SN Celebration Ale today. I plan on pouring it on the yeast cake from a SN Pale Ale clone that is in the primary right now. They both call for Wyeast #1056. I will try and remember to post the kit ingredients when It arrives.

Oh, that is good news. I think homebrew.com and ebrew.com one in the same now. There is something on homebrews site mentioning that. I can't wait to brew it up and see how it turns out.

Look here

I just made this recipe. (Went with extract kit because of a time constraint and because BREWtality wasn't finished yet and I had canabalized all my AG equipment).

It is actually pretty dang good.

Malted Wheat 5%
Pilsner malt 24%
Marris Otter Two row Pale Malt 56%

Chinook 40 2.19 12.10 Kettle addition
Cascade 15 1.79 6.30 Middle Addition

Thanks guys. This is great to see you've had some successful clones. I'm sure some of them are even better than the actual. I'll look them over and give one of the a shot. I'll repost when I get to tasting it. Thanks again!

Anyone have any tips of how to get hops HBU's from a beers IBU. Or should I just go with the amount of hops it calls for and wing it?

Read this thread for an IBU calculation formula. Scroll down a bit.

Go backwards from that.
