Sierra Nevada Porter Clone
Source: Ed Kesicki (ek@chem.UCSD.EDU), HBD Issue #1103,
Here is a recipe for a clone of Sierra Nevada Porter. I didn't mean for
it to come out that way; in fact, I had never tasted SNP until after I
made this one (my 4th all-grain batch).
It is based on Dave Miller's traditional porter recipe.
- 7 lb 2-row pale malt
- 12 oz Black patent malt
- 6 oz Barley flakes
- .5 tsp gypsum
- 2 oz Cascades loose hops, 5.5% aa, 60 min boil (= 11 AAU)
- 0.5 oz English Fuggles plug hops, last 5 min of boil
- Sierra Nevada Yeast
The yeast was cultured from two bottles (actually it
was the yeast cake from a previous batch).
Mash in: 130 deg. F 9 qts water (San Diego tap water)
Protein rest: 125 deg F 30 min
Mash temp: 154-142 deg F 1.5 hr
Mash out: 168 deg F 5 min
Sparge: approx 4-5 gal @ 170 deg F
Total boil time of 1.25 hr, hops additions as noted above, chilled.
Fermented in glass, temp in the low 60's Farenheit, blow-off used.
