Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe

Hi I was wondering if anyone has a recipe for a southern tier ipa clone. I've done some searching and have found nothing.

I know it says it has 3 types of hops, I assume they are some arrangement of the c-hops maybe chinook, cascade and centennial or something.

There website says it's 12L and 7.3% abv

Does this sound anywhere close

Re: Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe

I'm not sure what they put it in, but my guess is that it has less crystal malt and more hops than your recipe. I read somewhere that they use Willamette as one of their hops.

Re: Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe

I guess I could cut back the crystal 40l maybe use a touch of Crystal 80 or higher to bring up the color to 12L.

As for the hops any guesses, maybe go dry hop with an ounce each of cascade, centennial and willamette?

Re: Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe

They were my local brewery growing up. Back in the day they had more detailed information about their ingredients right on the bottle. Williamette and Columbus were listed. On draft I always get a big Columbus dry hop aroma so I'd go that direction there. Maybe blend them in the flavor addition but a bit toward the Williamette.

Re: Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe

I really wouldn't have expected the willamette.

It's funny either this recipe is a closely guarded secret or the homebrew community doesn't like the beer well enough to try and copy it. There's nothing to be found on the internet for this at all.

So how about the following
75% 2 row
20% munich 10L
5% crystal 80L
1oz Columbus @60
0.5oz Columbus @5
1oz Willamette @5
1oz Columbus Dry Hopped
2oz willamette Dry Hopped


I guess I'll have to brew it and compare, at the very least it'll be a tasty beer.

Re: Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe

Their beer tastes to me like 1272 American II Ale Yeast.

Re: Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe

I doubt they use that much/any munich but that doesn't mean you can't. I would dry hop only with Columbus, 2 oz. Their beers all tend to be a bit malty and sweet and the IPA definitely has some color to it. A medium crystal malt, 40-60, seems like the right way to start - maybe 7-8% until you get the right color.

Re: Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe

I wrote a clone a few years back based on information on their website and it used Willamette and Columbus. I would try blending these two in generous proportions at say 15, 5, 0, and DH. Like maybe an ounce for each?

Re: Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe

Ok I'ved adjusted it, added the willamette and removed the munich. The website still says 3 types of hops so I am still missing one. I agree its on the sweeter side so I don't think I want the ibu's up too high.

Re: Looking for a Southern Tier IPA recipe
