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've checked my recipe and the HBU's need corrected.

Chinook leaf 23 HBU (19.5 for pellets) 60 mins
Cascade leaf 19 HBU 20 mins

Also used 1/2 lb cara pils for the steep

"Dude" worked on a great SNCA clone. It's much better than the AHB clone IMO.

I'll look for the link. You need to be around 62 IBU for this clone.

I used the following to convert to extract.

.75 lbs. Crystal Malt 90L
2 lbs. American 2-row
.5 lbs. Dextrine Malt
6 lbs. Dry Light Extract

Steep the specialty grains at ~160*F for 30 minutes. Take it off the heat and add around 4 pounds of the DME. I added the last 2 lbs of DME with about 10 minutes left in the boil. Use "Dude's" hop additions and you should be all set...

NoClue,

Thanks for the recipe from Dude! Yeah, I wasn't too keen on AHBS Celebration Ale...not quite on the money. I'm thinking I'll brew the recipe you suggest.

Peace

Mike McDole brews an IPA that was meant as a Celebration Ale clone. Its won lots of awards. Someone posted the recipe here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/sn-c...-recipe-96551/

Is this a partial mash or would I seep the 2-row, crystal and dextrine malts? I'm decently new to brewing but that's way more grain than I seep and 2-row is a base malt...but what do I know.

I'd love to make this beer, thanks for the info.

any thoughts on this recipe for a sierra celebration not quite clone? hops are not exactly the same because this is what i could get organically. this is 100% organic except for the yeast..

http://hopville.com/recipe/377617/ho...ebration-clone

please note 4 gallon, not 5 gallon batch.

% LB OZ Malt or Fermentable ppg L
87% 7 0 Briess Organic LME info 34 4
13% 1 0 Crystal 60L info 34 60

use time oz variety form aa
boil 60 mins 1.0 Columbus info leaf 12.1
boil 15 mins 1.0 Cascade info leaf 7.7
boil 5 mins 1.0 Cascade info leaf 7.7
dry hop 7 days 1.0 Cascade info leaf 7.8

also have access to summit hops if those might fit in better somewhere.

I decided to bump this after seeing the article in BYO with this recipe.... Couple of questions....
1. Is Celebration really mashed that high (157F)? This year does not seem like you get the sweetness out of such a high mash
2. Previous recipe on here only call for 60 hop addition, but the BYO article is calling for 2 100 minute additions.
I suppose they may have change the recipe, but BYO just seems off to me as I am tasting the beer. Any thoughts?

OG 1.064
FG 1.016
IBU 65
SRM 12
ABV 6.8

12.5 lbs US 2-Row
15 oz. Crystal 60 (Assume British based on the interview with Steve Dressler on Brewing Network)
.75 oz Chinook 100 Minute (12% AA)
.50 oz Centennial 100 Minute (10% AA)
1.5 oz Cascade 10 Minute (5% AA)
.66 oz Centennial 0 Minute (10%AA)
1.3 oz Cascade 0 Minute (5% AA)
.66 oz Centennial Dry Hop (10%AA)
1.3 oz Cascade Dry Hop (5% AA)

Mash in at 157F and hold for 60 Minutes. Ferment at 68F.

I believe there is a clone in the latest BYO magazine.

I thought about the temp in BYO recipe as well. I plan on doing the bigfoot clone, which is a barleywine higher alcohol, I believe they say mash at 154, but then again with high OG the yeast are doing their damnest to get the attenuation down to manageable FG. With the Celebration, almost a "baby" bigfoot, I would think you'd want to mash higher with the same yeast because the yeast would better attenuate. So maybe 154-157 is reasonable assuming the bigfoot would be mashed that high, which is high for a barleywine I've read. Very little crystal though.

They could be wrong on both temps, or could be assuming you are gonna lose a degree or two in your picnic cooler.
