That look awesome, when are you planning to brew it? It's a little similar to the Citra-Amarillo I'm putting together (with nice feedback from you!)

I brewed it last saturday, it is fermenting now and smells wonderful. I'll probably start the dryhop next weekend. I'll update when I pull a sample out.

Very curious to see how this is going to turn out. Just bought a pound of Citra. Thinking of doing this as a next brew if it is good.

It is done fermenting, still in the primary. I will probably start dryhop tomorrow or early next week, and dryhop for 7-10 days. I will update when I get a sample pulled.

Having never tried this beer, but reading a lot about it, it sounded tasty! So I started a batch 5/28/2011. Since this is only a 5 gallon batch I went with 2.5 ounces of Citra for the dry hopping. I'd say I am going for about 10 days for dry hopping, then it will be placed in a keg to let age for a few more weeks.

I wil let everyone know how my 5 gallon batch comes out.

Sorry, I have been slacking on the update. Took a vacation out to California to visit Russian River and Lagunitas and am still getting back on track.

I found out that one of my local beer bars has a keg of Zombie Dust that will be tapped this week, so I held off and started the Dry-hop 6/3. I plan to dryhop for 10 days also, but I will force carb a liter or so Wed, and take it to the bar Thursday for a taste test. From the sample I pulled I can say the color is there and the smell is right on. I think the taste is pretty close, I will update again after the side by side (hopefully with pictures.)

Also- I talked to Lincoln Anderson (from 3 Floyds) at an event a couple weeks ago. He made it sound like Zombie Dust would be going to bottles as previously reported. One problem is that Citra hops are becoming harder to get and they are a proprietary strain.

I actually brewed mine on 5/22 and dry hopped 5/28. It has been 10 days, wondering if I should leave it be or rack it to a third carboy then re-rack to a keg, force carb and wait a few weeks or drink it right away....

Suggestions?

I do a similar gravity and ibu ipa that is great after a month, yours may still be a bit young at 16 days though. Have you tasted it yet? My zombie dust attempt is 3.5 weeks old and pretty good. If I was you I would rack into a keg and skip the carboy; no use racking anymore than you have to. If it tastes good carb it up. It can always age in the keg.

Is this a staple at the brewpub? I'll be driving through next Monday and have two empty 3F growlers...
