I look forward to having 395 every time we go to Yosemite. One of my favorites. Their Epic IPA was very good as well.

I was just up in Yosemite and picked up a few of their brews. The 395 was very interesting with the sage and juniper in it...I enjoyed it though. I wouldn't be able to drink a ton of it, but it was great for sipping on after a couple long hikes! I also tried the Tuolumne Meadows IPA which I really like. It was especially fitting since I was camping in Tuolumne Meadows. It was well balanced and a pretty easy drinker for an IPA. I wish I could find it where I live.

If you can manage to lay down one of those Epics for a few months, it will pleasantly surprise you.

This is one of my favorites! I went to Mammoth two years ago and have been dreaming of this beer since. I live on the other side of the country from the brewery and can't order it here. I want to make a small batch (1 gallon) of something like it, but being from New England, I don't have desert sage lying around. Since I am a total newbie, I'm not sure how to determine the amount of each ingredient to use. Here's what is listed on the web site:

Style: Double IPA
Malts: ESB, Crystal, Caramunich and Dark Munich
Hops: Millenium and Centennial
Adjunts: Sage and Juniper Berries
ABV: 8.0%
IBUs: 50

Any thoughts on percentages or amounts for these ingredients? Any expertise is appreciated!

It's been a while since I've had this beer, so I can't offer too much advice on cloning it. I'd start with a typical IPA recipe which would be 80%-90% of your base malt (ESB in this case), maybe 10% munich, and 5% or so of your crystal and caramunich. As far as hops I might go for 30-35 IBU's from a 60 minute addition and 15-20 IBU's from a 20 minute addition. Then do a 0 minute addition and dryhop.

Like I said, this just gives you a place to start and won't necessarily be a clone. I have yet to use sage or juniper in a brew so I can't offer any advice there. I've heard juniper is pretty potent though and you don't need much.
