I'm a bit new to this, but i'm ready to try my own recipe. I really like the flavor of citrus ia a beer, being from Riverside ca, most everybody grows some variety in their yard. i read up some on this hop called citra, so i bought some and ready to mash tomorrow.
I just returned from vegas and had some great beer at a brew-house off the strip. They had a golden ale that was delicious, and had a great citris aroma. i was thinking they might have used the citra hop. anyhoo, below is what I have together to mash. Please feel free to provide advice.
batch size 5 gallon
Yeast = Nottingham
8 lbs American 2 row
1 lb carapils malt (dextrine)
1 Lb crystal 15 (carastan)
1 lb honey malt
Hops = Centennial for bittering
hops = Citra for Flavor/Aroma
The recipe might sound a bit strong, but i like deep rich beers
