This clone is based upon a recipe posted on the Sierra Nevada web site. It is adapted from the original notebooks of Sierra Nevada founder Ken Grossman.

Unfortunately, the recipe lacks original gravity and IBU information. The original gravity and IBUs are from a description of the commercial version. The hop additions from the blog post would produce about 65 IBUs, which is much higher than the commercial version. The IBUs have been changed to 38 to keep the clone similar to the commercial version.

Sierra Nevada feels that whole hop cones produce better flavor than hop pellets.
