Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone Recipe (Partial Mash)

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!

Anyone brew this up with any tasting results they would like to share?


  1. Gday, just wondering what temps and how long for grains? Cheers

  2. If you were to do all grain, what would your grain bill look like? Would you just up the 2-row or add some more Crystal as well?
