Does some one have an extract version of this?

Looking to substitute Pale Ale grain with either liquid or dry malt extract.

I use a 5 litre pot to steep no more than 1.5 kilo grains And a 10 litre pot to boil

Thoughts ?

If using malt extract i would be tempted to add some dextrose to get your attenuation a bit better. Typically extract doesnt attenuate quite as well as fresh grain for some reason.

 

I would look at 93% LME, 5% Crystal 2% dex and stick to the hopping schedule in the recipe. Maybe steep a kg of base grain for an hour (ie mash it) in place of some of the extract to get some more grain flavour and increase attenuation.

Thank you Droopy.

I was looking to keep anywhere from1 to 1.5 kilo of total grain.

Will do some conversions tonight when I am home.

Cheers,

Although i have not done a recipe for this exact beer i have done one for the Green Flash IPA. (Link will be at the end.)
I had a can of the Torpedo the other day and ill say it's pretty darn close and a great brew showcasing East Coast hops.
Definitely recommend doing it any way.

I have done it with liquid or dry malt and just 200g of crystal and added some dextrose as mentioned in the above replies. Cracker drop. Done it 4 times and still goes down a treat.

From BYO:

Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA clone

(5 gallons/19 L, extract with grains)
OG = 1.070 FG = 1.018 IBU = 70 SRM = 12 ABV = 7.2%

Ingredients

1 lb. 5 oz. (0.6 kg) pale malt
11 oz. (0.31 kg) caramel malt (60 °L)
5.0 lbs. (2.3 kg) light dried malt extract
2 lb. 6 oz. (1.1 kg) light liquid malt extract (late addition)
17 AAU Magnum hops (60 mins)(1.2 oz./34 g of 14% alpha acids)
1.0 oz (28 g) Magnum hops (5 mins)
1.0 oz. (28 g) Crystal hops (5 mins)
0.67 oz. (19 g) Magnum hops (dry hop)
0.67 oz. (19 g) Crystal hops (dry hop)
0.67 oz. (19 g) Citra hops (dry hop)
Wyeast 1056 (American Ale), White Labs WLP001 (California Ale) or Fermentis US-05 yeast
1 cup corn sugar (for priming)

Step by Step

To get the proper amount of hop bitterness, you must be able to boil 4.0 gallons (15 L) of wort. Steep grains in 3 qts. (~3 L) of water at 152 °F (67 °C) for 45 minutes. Add water to make 4.0 gallons (15 L), stir in dried malt extract and bring to a boil. Boil for 90 minutes, adding hops at time indicated. Add boiling water if wort volume drops below 3.5 gallons (13 L). Add liquid malt extract for final 15 minutes of the boil. Cool wort and transfer to fermenter. Add cold water to make 5 gallons (19 L). Pitch yeast and ferment at 68 °F (20 °C). Dry hop for 10 days to 2 weeks or use a torpedo to add hop character.
