Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone - Cali Mountain (All Grain)

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone - Cali Mountain (All Grain)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

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!

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!
