Default Help with Citra

I finally got my hands on some citra, and was wondering what you guys think the most effective way to use it would be. I really want the Citra to shine. I have three ounces to play with. I was thinking of something like this:

60% 2row
20% Munich
10% Wheat
5% C40
5% Toasted

.5oz Centennial @ 60
1oz Citra @ 15
1oz Citra @ 5
1oz Citra DH

OG 1.050/IBU 42/SRM 8

What do you think? Cheers

You can choose to do whatever you want, but I wouldn't muddle it with toasted malt or use the Citra beyond 10 minutes if you want it to shine. A simple 60/5/0/DH schedule will work very well. I would also strictly use pellets for these additions instead of leaf.

I find it's best when used as a dry hop and very late addition.

Just dry-hopped a light ale that I had that didn't taste quite right with .5oz of citra and now it's like a delicious summer grapefruit beer. Awesome!

You probably don't need Munich and toasted malt.

<-- Check out my all Citra APA recipe in my Recipes section. I've made 6 batches of this now and everyone considers it my best beer.

Yeah, Citra has that effect. I've experienced similar praise from a Citra + Amarillo IPA w/Wyeast 1056 along with a 153 F mash of 80-ish% American 2-row base malt + XL DME, 12% Red Wheat, and 4% Crystal 40 to bring to approx. 7% abv.

A very simple beer yet everyone loved that Citra aroma. And Amarillo plays very well with Citra.

Ya I have two pounds of both and use them together all the time! I agree with the rest of the folks here, use the Citra late if you want nose to be potent.
