Brewed a variation of this myself a few weeks back... screenshot of my recipe (I've been entering them on hopville.com) is below:



Mashed at 154 for 60 min... primary for 10 days at about 74, then transferred to secondary and added 2 more oz of Citra for 14 days. Let it bottle condition for 10 days and is tasting mighty fine right now.

Did a side by side with Zombie Dust and this came out a bit darker and slightly sweeter with a much more dense cap of foamy head(which I quite like). Aroma and flavor were similar enough - my version was a bit more creamy whereas the real thing had a little more crispness to it. In a blind taste test my girlfriend even said she preferred my version...

Thanks to everyone for all the info in this thread - was really helpful as I went through the brewing process!

cheers!

I'm only just starting, but I'm going to try and craft this brew up sometime in October and let it age for a while for a great Christmas presents for the family. Thank you kindly for the recipe. Please let us know how it turns out for you.

I racked my latest attempt to the secondary(s) today and added 1.5oz dry hop in each fermenter. It is too young to really judge flavors, but the S-05 is a little more bitter and tastes a bit drier also. The S-04 is a little more fruity, and cleared a lot more than the S-05 (it is on the right in the picture). I put both fermenters in a bathtub with ~68 degree water to ensure they were under the same temperature conditions during primary. I'll update again after the dry-hop is done. Glad to hear yours came out good also theTomG, i wonder how the California II yeast compares to I, the extra fruitiness probably plays well with the recipe.

My lhbs didn't have carafoam so said to sub cara pils, also had to go with American ale. How much do you all think that will change my attempt at the extract recipe.

Carapils is the same as carafoam, just a different company malting it. Same with the yeast, S-05 is the dry version of -001 or 1056. You should be fine.

Just mashed in. pH 5.4, RIMS running nicely. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
