Have any of you (probably mainly Perthites) tried the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale from TWOC. It's supposed to be close to the real mcoy, or, at least, very good & if so, what did you think of it?

Can't say I have. But BYO had an issue a couple of months ago with the extract and AG recipes for a few of the big beers in America. Of course their editor missed a few mistakes in the recipes but that was picked up by readers and corrected in a later edition. I have the Sierra Nevada on file witing for a brewday.

Cheers

Its surprising that they can sell a kit called SNPA. Bit like me selling a Coopers pale ale kit.
Big D, Why did you buy the kit when you could make your own?
cheers

Thanks big d. I was going to get a couple to try but, after your experience, may just try one first - I'll let you know what I think.
What extract or partial did you add to it & what yeast?

Hi Everyone,
I am about 2 hours from the Brewery.
SNPA is considered to be "THE STANDARD" of the industry, for a Micro Pale Ale.
You can't go wrong with it...from the brewery!
Hint: put it in your freezer for 20 minutes of so. Crack the cap, let it breath for about 15 minutes!

Matt.

Thanks for the hint Matt and SNPA is certainly the oft quoted APA standard, together with our local LCPA(and skunk fart version for us HBrs) of course. Would value your opinion as to what effect the freezer method has on the beer, given pubs typically serve beer too cold.

RE: SNPA out of the Freezer.

- I have NO IDEA if it "does anything" for the beer, BUT.....(personal preference).....I think it tastes better that way.
