In the pursuit of perfect homebrew, failure still makes beer.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone Recipe

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone

Just tossing in an extract kit today that I’ve had for a few weeks, and I want to make sure that I use the White Labs yeast I have before it “expires.” This will definitely be a celebration beer (no Sierra Nevada pun intended) – I’m about halfway through going through a no-grain, no-dairy, no-sugar, no-processed diet challenge with the Crossfit box I’m part of. 15 days without beer has been no fun. But this will make me appreciate my beer more, won’t it? Right?
