I listened to the Green Flash show and Chuck was very informative about the beer. Of course I had no idea that it wouldn't be up immediately for download so I didn't save a copy of it or anything.

Yeah, but think about how clean the floor is now...she should be thanking you.

I tried that angle, but at teh time, she wasn't buying it...

The attenuation is high, so be sure to factor this into your grain bill. I think my hops are accurate, but I might have bumped them a little.

1069 OG 1014 FG
79% attenuation
SRM 8.8
7.4 ABV
90 Min
Pre Volume 7.7
Preboil Gravity 1054

14 lbs 2 Row
1.31 lbs of Carastan 30-37 or Crystal 40
1.31 lbs Carapils

.5 oz Simcoe 90 Min
.5 oz Columbus 60 Min
.5 oz Simcoe 60 Min
.25 oz each Columbus/Simcoe 30 Min
.75 oz each Columbus/Simcoe 15 Min
1 oz Cascade 10 Min
.5 oz each Columbus, Simcoe @ 0 min
.5 oz each Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe, Columbus Dry Hop

Yeast US 05

Adds some gypsum. Over 100 ppm Calcium in the GF's water already plus they add more.

White Labs WLP001 California Ale

Mash Schedule
Mash Type: Single Step

Grain Lbs: 16.63
Water Qts: 20.78 - Before Additional Infusions
Water Gal: 5.20 - Before Additional Infusions

Qts Water Per Lbs Grain: 1.25 - Before Additional Infusions

Saccharification Rest Temp : 152 Time: 35
Mash-out Rest Temp : 165 Time: 15
Sparge Temp : 170 Time: 45

Total Mash Volume Gal: 6.53 - Dough-In Infusion Only

Actual OG: 1.070 Actual FG: 1.015
2 Vials of White Labs WLP001 California Ale yeast grown up on a 1.035 2 liter stir plate starter for approximately 16 hours before pitching.

Pitched at 68F. Allowed it to rise during the natural heat created during fermentation up to 70F.
Fermented in 6 gallon carboy. Fermented 7 days before dry hopping.
Not transferred or yeast not removed before dry hopping.
Dry hopped for 7 days at 64F. Agitated the dry hop every other day.

I added enough Gypsum to get my water up to approximately 50ppm Calcium, Chuck's starting with 60-70ppm Calcium in Vista, CA (I said 100 on the show, it's actually 60-70), and might be hitting at least 100ppm Calcium in the finished beer. The water in Vista, CA in North San Diego county is pretty hard. See the 2007 water report for that area here:

This homebrew recipe turned out just fantastic, I'd say it was totally cloned. We tapped 5 gallons in the studio on Monday, and I'd say at this rate the keg won't last much longer. :aaron

Potential recipe improvements: Accentuate bitterness in the finish a bit more with water adjustments and/or hit about 35IBU at 90 minutes instead of 25. I would do 25IBU of Simcoe and 10IBU of Columbus there instead of just Simcoe. Also don't be afraid to calculate this recipe out to 105-110IBU. Use Carastan 30-70 if you can instead of Crystal 40L.

Brew it up and enjoy.

Cheers! Kippis! Skål! Prost!
