Ah, now I see... carry on.

I'll be dry hopping tomorrow, so I'll post my fg. I used Bell's yeast, so it won't be an exact comparison. I also mashed a bit high( 156,157) but I wanted a little more maltiness to cut the heavy hops.

Once again, My lack of preparation leaves me with an empty keg and no more ZD ready to be tapped. The next batch needs to be 10g.

I am dry-hopping mine today. I am so excited to taste it. I will bottle next week, then a short wait to carbonation...

Brewing this tomorrow or the next day -

I have S04 and Wyeast 1968.

Any last thoughts? I would need to get a starter spinning soon if I go with 1968.


Cheers

Both will make great beers. I may prefer the 1968, if you have time to get the starter going. I would also mash a bit lower (152 or so) because the 1968 doesn't attenuate as well.

I tasted mine today when dry-hopping. Flat, warm, and unhopped, it may be the best thing I have brewed.

I have one batch, my first attempt at this recipe, to bottle tonight. Another that I racked and dry hopped to secondary yesterday and it smelled and tasted great.
I've got 6 brews under my belt and two of them are "Zombie" so I sure hope these finish out as good as they've tasted so far.

I'm brewing my first ZD IPA today. Was able to land some Citra from Midwest homebrew supplies in case others are looking for them.

Mashed at 153F....actually 153.3F.

Plan is to use WLP051 since I have that ready and it's been my go-to IPA yeast for a while.

The FWH make the entire house smell like citrusy goodness.
