I'm thinking about doing this recipe as my first All-Grain Batch on Sunday. :mug:

Any suggestions or experiences w/ this brew? I'd love to hear how others' Sierra Nevada Clones have turned out!

HOPS
1.5 oz Perle

Hop Schedual
1oz Perle 75 Min

here are some more notes, i must have been drunk when i wrote all this down LOL I did a single deconcotion to 158*f for over 1+ hour because some guy tried to sell me a water softner during the mashing process, i wanna say about 1 hour and 45 mins.

OG should be 1.052
FG should be 1.010


im sure you could alter it as you see fit, like maybe a 60 min boil lol.

Well, SNPA has both Magnum and Perle hops for bittering - with Cascade primarily for flavor & aroma. Comes in around 37IBU, 5.7% ABV. Here's an AG clone, single infusion mashed at 153, batch sparged. It's pretty close too on all the critical data...:
