This post shows the recipe for a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale clone (partial mash). The recipe below is the product of five painstaking brew sessions just for this clone brew to get it right! A version of this came from the 2005 Brew Your Own magazine. In the original article it called for more malt. Each time I have attempted a perfect clone match it has gotten a little closer to the real thing, until this last time, it was spot on, enjoy!
