Just tapped mine on Tuesday and it's a fantastic beer. We don't have 3 floydes in my neck of the woods but I was able to get some on a beer trade and mine taste almost identical, just fresher. Great recipe and thanks for sharing. I'm also going to try and brew this on Friday if my LHBS has enough Citra.

**EDIT** My LHBS has the citra in, looks like this is going to be made tomorrow!!!

I just tried Zombie Dust on tap for the first time yesterday. Very happy I was able to find it in Madison, WI. AMAZING beer. Definitely my new "desert island" beer. I was stunned. I'm going to be happy if my batch comes anywhere close to it. It's been in the primary for 1 week.

Going to ramp up the temp 5 degrees to 68 or so for another week and then dry hop when it's ready. I've never dry hopped in the primary before, but I'm thinking about it this time.

I've been noticing zombie dust popping up at a few bars around Milwaukee lately.

I know it's at Benno's Pub. I told my dad about it and he'll be dropping by on Monday after work. He wanted to get a pint yesterday around noon, but they have some pretty strange hours. Open at 4 I guess.

This is quite the thread...love me some ZD. It's so scrumpdiddlyumptious.

Has anyone tried a 3 gallon BIAB version of this? I've recently made the jump from extract to BIAB and would like to continue on that route. Can't go full-tilt all grain...no room in my cramped city digs.

Thanks!

Brewed my 2nd batch of this on 12/29/12. My LHBS was out of 2-Row (ridiculous, I know), so I chose to use Golden Promise as my base malt. My OG was 1.067 and my FG was 1.016. Fermented w/US-04 at around 64-degrees...turned out fantastic, and in the last week has really cleared up well in the keg. Now I'm getting the itch to brew this recipe, but with different hop varieties...maybe Centennial...Amarillo??

I just received a pound of citra and ordered a 20 gallon Boilermaker. Guess what I'm doing next week!

Is the first recipe listed the closest so far?

Yes. From what I've read, the recipe on the first page has been continually updated. Doing a 10 gallon batch?

I've had my partial mash batch on the dry hops for 3 days. I'm not kegging, so I'm still a ways away. I just acquired a few bottles of ZD via a trade. It's going to be very hard to save a bottle to taste back to back when it's ready!
