Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone - Cali Mountain (Extract)

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone - Cali Mountain (Extract)

Item currently out of stock

Our Cali Mountain Pale Ale is an attempt at one of the most iconic pale ales in the country: Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale.  This pale ale is a fairly simple recipe, cosisting of ultralight malt extract, Crystal 60L, and four hop additions.  This being said, don't be fooled.  The flavors blend together perfectly, creating a complex yet easy to drink homebrew.

The bittering hop additions are Magnum and Perle which provide a clean bitterness that balances the sweetness from the Crystal 60L malt perfectly.  The aroma hop and dry hop additions are both Cascade, providing a citrus & floral aroma as fresh as the forests in California's mountains!

Estimated OG: 1.052-1.057
SRM: 9-11
Estimated IBU's: 37-41

Great kit, can't beat the price.
This is a nice kit, and produced a clean, crisp and
drinkable ale... doesn't really taste like Sierra Nevada, but that's likely some issue on my end. It is still very enjoyable! A great brew kit, especially at this price.

Bests SNPA in side by side
I had a blind side by side with a few friends and they all chose this over the SN. 'Nuff said? This is my 5th time brewing it, I stick to the recipe and try to be spot on with my hop timings and then quickly cool it down to pitching temp. I do a dry hop of 3-4 days.
Stupidly Named Pale Ale (Cali Mountain?? Really, that's the best you got?)

Hoppy goodness
Clean. Hoppy without being too hoppy. The dry hopping works magic for the aroma. It smells amazing. My batch finished at 5.7%. Carbonation is spot on! This kit turned out a great pale ale. I WILL be brewing this again. If you like SNPA give this a shot, you won't be disappointed.
Strong headed. Tastes much better than it looks.

True to the Original
I started drinking Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in the 70s when it was bottled in 12oz Bud long necks. It is one of the few beers I will purchase to this day. The Cali Mountain really closes in on the flavor and aroma of the SNPA. All my friends really like it and it is super satisfying!

Go to beer at a great value
Best overall beer- and price is right!
This is THE beer that we have with dinner or on the weekends along with some more complex brews.
When you’re overloaded with hoppy beer and just want a good tasting quality beer with an abv over 5- This is the go-to! We always have 3-4 kits on hand if this one ??
