sierra nevada torpedo ipa clone
« on: June 24, 2012, 08:08:48 AM »
Hello,  The weekend began Friday late afternoon with a 6-er of the above and Wow, is it great beer.  It's Sunday morning and there are 8 empty bottles in recycling, as the Hop Devils forced  me go get reinforcements.  I've searched all over the site, but can't find a recipe for this elixir.  Can anyone help?  Thanks for your time

Here's a recipe I've had for a while but have yet to brew, it's all grain and the batch size is 2.50gals so you would just have to adjust accordingly if doing 5gal.

Ingredients:
------------
Amt                   Name                                     Type          #        %/IBU         
5 lbs 8.0 oz          Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)           Grain         1        90.9 %       
8.8 oz                Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM)    Grain         2        9.1 %         
0.45 oz               Magnum [14.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min         Hop           3        44.3 IBUs     
0.25 oz               Magnum [14.00 %] - Boil 14.0 min         Hop           4        11.6 IBUs     
0.13 tsp              Irish Moss (Boil 10.0 mins)              Fining        5        -             
0.50 oz               Crystal [3.50 %] - Boil 5.0 min          Hop           6        2.5 IBUs     
0.25 oz               Magnum [14.00 %] - Boil 5.0 min          Hop           7        4.9 IBUs     
1.0 pkg               California Ale (White Labs #WLP001) [35. Yeast         8        -             
0.33 oz               Citra [12.00 %] - Dry Hop 0.0 Days       Hop           9        0.0 IBUs     
0.33 oz               Crystal [3.50 %] - Dry Hop 0.0 Days      Hop           10       0.0 IBUs     
0.33 oz               Magnum [14.00 %] - Dry Hop 0.0 Days      Hop           11       0.0 IBUs     

SN Torpedo is one of my fav's and a "go too" brew when I can't find anything to satisfy my hop graving.

Here is a recipe that i received from a guy, who knows a guy, whose brother -in-law's second cousin . . . you get the picture . . . This person states "it's the real thing"
90 % 2 row
7% caramel 60
3% munich  [ EuroPils is better]

mash at 155
60 minutes Magnun.
30 minutes Magnun
5 minutes Magnum, Crystal  and Citra

As I have no idea the amounts, I can only hope someone can work this backward from the IBU's which is  72.  The only notes he had were for the dry hopping :  about 3/4 pound / barrel.  Okay, that's as far as I can go .  :>)   Thanks for any help and if you brew this, let us know how it comes out
