I have brewed many, many vienna smashes and every one of them rocked. I've never done it with centennial, but I'm sure it will be great.

I would buy that if I saw it on a shelf. The colder the shelf, the more I would pay.

Does this much centenial make it taste citrusy? Or does all that grapefruit you get with dry-hopping centenial get blown off in a 20min addition?

After really loving the citrus flavor of big American pale ales, I seem to have lost my taste for it all of a sudden

No idea yet. I'm brewing it today, too much rain yesterday (as you already know). I love Bell's Two Hearted, it's all Centennial, I don't perceive a lot of grapefuit in it. Now Columbus is another story. I'm also drinking a Stone IPA right now that has a lot of Centennial in it, no grapefruit that I can taste.

Just got my first runnings and I'm fixing to start my sparge.

Centennial, to me at least, does not have the "in your face" citrus that many (most?) of the other C hops. It's my general "go to" hop for american styles.

Just took a hydrometer sample. 1.013. Damn tasty. I mean real damn tasty. This Sunday will make two weeks since brew day. I will probably cold crash it then for at least a week and keg (if I have an available one).

Oh, gotta dry hop, too. Maybe I'll throw those in now.

Sorry, I didn't catch your yeast.

(That didn't come out right)
