Sierra Nevada Torpedo Recipe

Anyone have a good true and tested all-grain recipe for Torpedo? Thanks in advance.

I think you might have to design one.

Here are the stats from Sierra Nevada

ABV: 7.2%
OG: 17.3 Plato
FG: 4.2 Plato
IBUs: 65

2-Row Pale, Crystal

Bittering: Magnum
Finishing: Magnum, Crystal
Dry: Magnum, Crystal, Citra

Beerider used to blather on endlessly about brewing Torpedo clones, before he somehow got banned from the board. Do a search for “beerider” and “torpedo clone” and you’ll likely find something. Post back if you do.


Don’t remember where I got this, can’t verify it’s authenticity, and I have not made this.
But here it is.
