Celebration Ale

Those of you who know me are aware of my desire to design my own signature brews. I typically do not take any true joy in brewing up cloned beers. For me the only excitement in cloning is to see how close I can get to the real thing.
Personally I enjoy the product development side of things. Tonight's brew was very different in that regard. Tonight I brewed up a clone of one of my all time favorite beers: Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. I had everything on hand for this except the Centennial Hops. I nailed my Gravity on this clone tonight, as well as the color. Only time will tell how the deviation from the true hop profile will shake out.
Five gallons of the Bohemian Pilz got racked to a keg tonight as well. So this now leaves me with two empty kegs, and one empty carboy, not to mention the big-ass conical fermenter. Don't fret I have plans to fill them soon.
