Beer Style: American Pale Ale, India Pale Ale 
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 gallons


The Camp Fire in Butte County California hit close to home for Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. The Camp Fire was the most devastating wildfire in California’s history and many of Sierra Nevada’s employees, patrons and neighbors lost everything.

Sierra Nevada created a beer called Resilience IPA to help the recovery efforts. Breweries across the country will be brewing and selling the Resilience IPA with all proceeds donated to the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund through Golden Valley Community Bank Foundation.

GFHB adapted the original recipe which called only for Rahr 2-Row and Crisp Crystal 60L. Rahr 2-Row can be described as having a clean flavor with floral aroma and sweet taste. We ran the math of the original recipe so we could match target gravity and SRM. For our calculations we substituted Rahr 2-Row with Pale Millet Malt, but you may use Pale Rice Malt, or any combination of Pale Millet and Pale Rice to get to the same gravity. We used Crystal Rice Malt to substitute the Crisp Crystal 60L, which left some color to account for. The two additions we made was to add a pound of Biscuit Rice Malt to add some complexity to the flavor profile, and improve body and head retention; and we added a pound of Roasted CaraMillet Malt which will help achieve a similar color, but also to enhance the flavor profile and aroma. Final disclaimer: This is not a tried and true recipe as we have not yet brewed it....but this is where we would start!
