89% pale malt (or DME)
11% crystal 60
.5 oz. each Chinook and Centennial at 60 min.
2.5 oz. Centennial at 10 min.
1 oz. Cascade/.5 oz. Centennial at flameout
1 oz. Cascade/.5 oz. Centennial dry hop

Shoot for 1.064 OG and 65 IBU

This recipe came directly from SN brewmaster Steve Dressler


Anybody have any guesses on how much grain this translates to for a 5 gallon batch? I am looking to do this my very first or second all grain batches and have no idea what my efficiency will turn out to be. Don't know boil off rates, etc,...........but I still want it to be good!

:cheers:

If you don't know that stuff, none of us will be able to make a guess any better than you will. I'd assume 70% efficiency and 1 gal./hr. boiloff. Figure based on that and correct the next time if necessary.
Life begins at 60....1.060, that is.

I guess I don't know which program to go to (or chart) to tell me that (xx lbs of 2 row (89%) + (xx lbs of Crystal 60 (11%) x 70% (efficiency) = 7 +/- gallons of wort which would boil down to 5.5 at 1.064. Where is a simple place to plug in this recipe so I have a close idea as a starting point?

Sorry for the noob all grain question

Re: Sierra Nevada Celebration Extract Clone

You want 64 points/gallon x 5.5 gallons = 352 total points.

Potential points per pound of grain average about 36. But, at the guesstimate of 70% efficiency, you would expect 36 x 0.7 = 25 points per pound.

352 total points ÷ 25 points/pound = 14 pounds of grain

89% of 14 # = 0.89 x 14 = 12.5 # of Pale Ale Malt
11% of 14 # = 0.11 x 14 = 1.5 # of Crystal 60

Exactly what I was looking for, thanks!

Re: Sierra Nevada Celebration Extract Clone

I brewed the extract version of SN Celebration using the hop schedule that denny posted. I can't wait to try it.

Re: Sierra Nevada Celebration Extract Clone

I don't have my brew day log in front of me but I seem to remember mashing at 153°. Going to bottle this weekend so we'll see how it comes out.

Re: Sierra Nevada Celebration Extract Clone

I kegged the SN Celebration ale and got to try it today. I am very impressed with it, it tastes very close to the original. I am glad I used the hop schedule that I got from this forum, and will definately brew this again. Thanks to all that took the time to reply to my posts.

I know! Sounds crazy, huh? But that's from one of the brewers.

It does. I'm scared to go over 155. :shock:

Re: Sierra Nevada Celebration Extract Clone

I went ahead and brewed this a couple months ago. It's nice but came out a little off. First off, I only mashed @ 152. I don't remember where I got that temp from but obviously I missed the post about mashing at 157. Could this lead to a really watery mouth feel? Also there is next to no head retention. The actual beer has a really intense head on it and I want to re-create that. Would the higher mash temp maybe correct that or should I go ahead and add some wheat to the grain bill?
