Akin to SN Celebration
« on: July 07, 2012, 01:15:59 PM »
This is a recipe inspired by Sierra Nevada Celebration.  It's not a clone, but it's definitely in the ballpark.

13.25 lbs. American 2-row
1 lb. English dark crystal (75% in mash, 25% added during batch sparge)
.25 lbs. dextrine malt

1 oz. Chinook (11.8%) - 60 minutes
.5 oz. Centennial (12.5%) - 30 minutes
.75 oz. Cascade (6.8%) - 15 minutes
.75 oz. Centennial (12.5%) - 15 minutes
.75 oz. Cascade (6.8%) - 5 minutes
.75 oz. Centennial (12.5%) - 5 minutes
1 oz. Cascade (6.8%) - dry hop

13-15 grams (eyeballed) of rehydrated US-05 pitched at 62 and fermented at 66 for 16 days, crash cooled for 3 days, then kegged with the dry hops

All RO water with 3 grams gypsum and 2 grams calcium chloride added to mash, 1/4 teaspoon of phosphoric acid added to sparge water, 2 grams gypsum and 1 gram calcium chloride added to kettle

Mashed at 150 for 60 minutes

OG: 1.068
FG: 1.013
ABV: 7.19%
IBU: 78
SRM: 11

I tapped the keg last night, and it is fantastic...

Edit: I should add that this is formulated for a 5.7 gallon batch at 74% efficiency.

How about a color for that crystal?

UK Dark is generally 70-90 SRM.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Yeah, according to the bin at my LHBS, it was 80 SRM.
