I would really like to try this recipe but I have one concern. Has anyone had any of this sitting around longer than a month or so? I dry hopped an APA with some citra, and for the first week or so it was great with big in your face mango flavor. After that, I somehow acquired a strange off flavor that I think may have come from the citra... Not quite sure. Harsh, not so pleasant bitter that left a strange aftertaste. I have nuked that keg with bleach and starsan, just to make sure was not something infection like lurking in the keg.

You guys have any experiences similar to this with your ZD attempts?

I haven't. Doesn't seem other have either. Check the last 5 or so pages of this thread for feedback.

Thanks to all. Hope you enjoy it as much as I am.
Excellent to hear that! This forum has been such a great resource for me, and with people like Skeezer whipping up these great recipes it's no wonder.
The search feature is great and I use it all the time, but don't hesitate to post any questions you have. I'm not an expert brewer by any means, but I'm always happy to answer any questions that I can.

Just tried this after a week carbing in the keg. Oh it is good. It is very good. Citra punch to the face good.

Oh I can't wait to try this one as well! Although a lil intimidated by dry hopping which I've never done- just more development of my hobby though!

I have this sitting in secondary with 3oz of dry whole hops and cannot wait for it to be finished up.

I have been thinking about reusing the citra, is this possible? Can I dump out the 3oz and reuse that for making another batch or is all the citra goodness used up? It would be nice to be able to save 3ozs and possibly get a 3rd batch out of the 18ozs I bought..

I have seen a couple threads about people re-using hops for bittering, but have never done it before. A lot of the flavor/aroma oils may be gone. Did you try searching for re-using hops and the results? I am on my phone or I would try to find a link.

Whitehause/MrTheKing- I am glad you liked the recipe. Enjoy.

I did a search and got a lot of mixed results. Some say that there is no diminishment of the hops as long as they are used in a timely manner, others say add 20% and some said that it cant be done. I think I will freeze the 3oz from this batch and the 3 from the next and use the 6 to make a 3rd batch, that way I wont be wasting the new hops if it doesnt work out well. If I dont have an additional 3oz to dry hop the 3rd batch I might try something else like Cascade or something.

Sounds like a plan, report back when you do it. I am interested in this, as sooner or later my citra stash will become too small. If you have it, or can get it falconers 7cs may be a good option to try. It is a blend of all the Cs and worked well in an all 7cs batch I did awhile back.

Just brewed another batch of this yesterday, but screwed up my hop additions.
Last time I did a .5 oz at FWH, with .75 oz 15,10,5,1 minute addition.
I added in a .75 oz 20 minute addition taking ibus from 65 to 94 ibus. (come to think of it I might have done this on my previous batch as well)
The hydrometer sample didn't taste THAT hoppy before I pitched the yeast.
Maybe I just brewed a citra IPA by accident haha.
