I saw this and almost posted it. I guess it was a re-post of and old blog post. The no dryhop surprised me. I also thought the bittering was Perle so they must have changed at some point.

Somebody posted the Ruthless Rye recipe from SN's FaceBook the other day, too. 

 

It was HVB in the Flaked Rye thread: https://brews-bros.c...-rye/?p=3046635

It was. I just helped everyone out and linked the image. I hope to do my version soon. Maybe next week. I just have to decide on yeast... S-05 /1450 or S-09.

I think I saw this on Denny's FB with the SNPA recipe, it isn't the current recipe, but a older variation there of. I'd brew it to see how it compares.

Yeah, I remember 20 years ago or so, it was understood that Perle was the bittering hop.

Back in the day, (circa 2004) the standard issue SNPA clone recipe had wheat in it. Also back then, there was more than one hop variety used. IIRC the 60 minute bittering was perle 60 minute, finish was cascades. At some point it was widespread that SNPA changed the bittering additons from perle to perle + mangum.

I recall seeing Magnum/Perle on their website years back as the SNPA bittering addition, Perle as a mid-boil addition, and Cascade as the finishing addition.

back in 06 they listed Magnum and Perle to bitter.  Cascade for finishing and two row plus camel malts.

I would think they have substitutes they can use for the early additions.

I bugged basser for years to get me the recipe for Flipside. He finally told me to buzz off, that the head brewer didn't want to put it out there. Anyone seen the recipe for that one?

Basser also refused to reveal the SNPA yeast pitch rate. Good for him.

This is so close to SNPA that it's hard to tell the difference.  I've made this on many times....https://www.realbeer...news-000767.php

Closest thing to SNPA from a brewery not in Chico, CA was a pale ale from Nest Beer in Japan. If there was a difference, I could not find it. A nice find for an American beer lover doing a few months in the sticks north of Tokyo.
