Curios if anybody's had much success cloning Saga. I definitely drink more of this than any other commercial beer, and at its price point, I've never really tried to clone it- but I kind of want to give it a go now.
Here's what Summit provides on their website:
Original Gravity: 14 P (1.057)
Alcohol by Weight: 5.1%
Alcohol by Volume: 6.2%
Color, (deg. L.): Rich Gold (9.0 L)
Malts Utilized: 2-Row Pale, Caramel
Hops Utilized: Centennial, Amarillo, Citra, Rakau (dry-hopped: Amarillo, Citra, Rakau)
Yeast: American Ale
The commercial beer is light and clean, so I'm thinking very little caramel malt. As for hopping schedule, I'm open to ideas... I'm stabbing in the dark here, but thinking mostly late hops, maybe more Rakau/Amarillo than Citra. Has anybody had any success in brewing their own copy?
