    Thanks for posting this! I listened to the the entire show but right when they were giving the recipe my kids started causing a ruckus! Did you adjust the malt down like Jamil suggested for LME or is this the weight as given for the All-Grain version?


    1. Joel Mahaffey

      This is the all-grain version. If you want to make a partial mash, there are several grain to extract conversion tools online. Cheers!

    So how did this turn out? I’m preparing to brew this next weekend and I’m wondering if that recipe was spot on. Nice blog BTW.

      Hi Dave,

      This was pulled from the Jamil show, and the recipe was formulated with the help of Mitch Steele, the head brewer for Stone. I haven’t made it myself (though I plan to this summer), but I’m sure it’s going to be about as close as you can get without buying it.

      Dry hopping should be 1-2 weeks, 3 weeks on the outside, depending on what temperature you’re dry hopping at. Colder temps will need a longer dry hopping period, as the extraction process is slower. For reference, upper 60s-70s is warmer, 30s-50s is colder.

      There may be a precise answer from Stone, but dry hopping is a process that seems to be pretty forgiving of my personal schedule, so I usually don’t sweat it too much.
