Description

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 Briess 2-Row, 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
Estimated alcohol ABV%: 5.4-5.8%

Are the grains individually packaged? I brew 2.5 gallon batches and it would be easier to halve the kit for each batch.
David T on Apr 25, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are. Your base grains will be separate from the specialty grains which you will find in the kit with the hops. You can easily divide the ingredients.

Good flavor
Liked the flavor the first batch but my efficiency caused a lower gravity that resulted in a more “session-like” ABV. Bought a second time and purchased extra malt to help with gravity during the mash process.lLooking forward to it coming out of the fermenter.

Great Beer to Share with Friends
Share with your friends. Everyone will love this one. Great craft beer. Check the malt temperature, and make sure it's in range, it adds nice flavor at the right temperature. I used liquid yeast on this one and will be buying this again.

1st All Grain Brewing
I have been homebrewing for 5 years with extracts and partial mashes. This is my first attempt at all grain brewing. I was totally satisfied with the process and the finished product. I would recommend this recipe.

Killed it in a week...
I've tried the extract and all grain kit. All grain is hands down much better! Once my neighbors tasted this brew my keg was gone within a week. It's a little hoppier than SNPA but that's not a bad thing. I recommend dry hopping on the shorter side, two or three days max just to minimize any grassy character from dry hopping. Definitely a brew to keep in the regular rotation. Solid pale ale with good but not quite IPA-level hop bite. It's a crowd pleaser.

Great IPA. Great color, body and aroma without overwhelming bitterness.
3rd time ordering. First IPA I've ever brewed and has turned out great each time even though I'm a novice.

I'd recommend brewing per recipe instructions the first time and then add extra dry hop additions outside of the recipe for your consecutive brews.

I used safale us-05. 7 days in primary, 10 days in keg at 55° then serve once carbed. (17 days + carb time).

Happy Accident - became an IPA.
I overshot my gravity and modified the hop schedule to compensate. I then dry hopped during active fermentation with an ounce of Cascade Cryhops. Wow! What a beer!
