Notes

Sierra Nevada introduced the Resilience Butte County Proud IPA in November, 2018 as a fund raiser for Camp Fire relief efforts. The recipe for this beer has been released for brewing by other craft beer makers. A homebrew version of this recipe is available from the American Homebrewers Association.

This calculator is based upon the AHA recipe to provide a greater flexibility. The batch size can be scaled bigger or smaller by changing the volume field. If desired, a smaller, session beer version could be created by lowering the OG (1.050?) and possibly the total IBUs (40?). Another advantages is that the mash efficency can be easily adjusted to fit your system.

This calculator does not perform dry hopping calculations. The original recipe calls for .5 oz of Cascade and .5 oz of Cenntenial per five gallons. It's easy to adjust this up or down to fit your batch size.

A technical detail is that the grain percentages were converted to percent by original gravity. This slight adjustment means that the 10% crystal malt from the original recipe corresponds to 9.5% when expressed as percent by gravity.

Please keep in mind that the spirit of this recipe was to assist wildfire relief. The AHA suggests making donations to the Golden Valley Bank Community Association. They can accept electronic donations via PayPal.
