I have done BIAB before so I should be good. Is this for a 5 gallon batch?

Hello all,

just brewed this on July 31. Used S-04. Made a yeast starter and it was fermenting within hours--going crazy. Hope it turns out well and thanks for the recipe.

Could not get carafoam and so used carapils.

I made this beer from the original recipe skeeter posted. It was a "cat pee" smelling son of a gun for a while but it mellowed out after a month or so and I drank every one, last one a week ago. I will brew this again.

I've noticed cat pee aroma from the citra I bought in bulk at the beginning of the year. Nothing like the over ripe mango I used to get from previous crops of citra. My thinking is that the brewerys are selecting all the nice tropical citra crops and leaving us homebrewers with the catty crops. It still makes a very nice beer I just enjoy the more tropical citra.

The citra I ordered from Williams had a phenomenal fresh tropical aroma. No cat pee whatsoever. The citra from Northern was much less aromatic, but I still didn't get much cat pee. Just tried my ZD with both sources before kegging and it tasted amazing. Again no cat pee. I just wish I would have saved the Williams citra for dry hopping.. Pretty sure I opened that bag first for bittering

It makes me not want to buy citra in bulk since it's hit or moss but it still beats paying 3$ an ounce at the lhbs

I hear ya. I have Northern and Midwest minutes from my house which is super convenient, but they don't offer sh*t for bulk hops so I usually just suck it up and pay retail

Wow I would say that yours looks the closest to the real thing. What did you change from the original recipe?

Looking at the recipe in post one it lists a mash temp of 154 and WY 1968 yeast. Doesn't that mash temp seem a bit high when using a low attenuating yeast like the 1968?

Apparently you missed this part of post #1: "I have also used 1968 and it was similar to the S-04, perhaps a bit fruitier and it was sweeter/higher FG. If using it I would recommend mashing a few degrees cooler."
