Thanks for the input lads, I"ll keep you posted with how it turns out, when its brewed
Well once your IIPA is done we'll do a swap of that and maybe another beer? That way I won't steal all your stocks lol.

Man... I dont know the hell gets catpiss from Citra. Go get yourself a C!tra by Liberty Brewing. Freakin awesome beer!

I reckon to get the best idea of what a hop has to offer, do a single hop beer.

As crusader said, the middle additions are a waste of hops. My most recent APA's first addition was at 30mins, then i dumped another 150is g of hops over the last 15 mins to flameout. Its hoptastic. For more IBU's, bump up the 60mins, then dont do anything till you get to 15.

Yeah I got the Citra, because of C!tra. 10/10 from me on that! Beautiful beer!
Cheers for the advice on the additions, good to get it sorted before I brew it right

I have done a couple of SMaSH beers and I was thinking about a couple (more maybe now) single hop beers just to see how they roll before brewing.

Yeah the Liberty citra is amazing! Had it for the first time at Kiwi Beerfest last weekend. great day, great beer. I'd love to get my hands on a recipe for it.....

I've got some citra and scored some amarillo too. Cascade and Mot IPa this week sometime hopefully, need to cold crash my IIPA tomorrow.

Brewed my first (intentional) sour beer today. An Oud Bruin.

Guess we'll see how it went in 6 months to 2 years

Since I don't have to much Sauvin or Simcoe to play with, I revised the hop schedule to be something like this 90min boil:

28 g Cascade @ 75min
7.0 g Cascade @ 30min
7.0g Citra @ 30min
17g Cascade @ 10min
17g Citra @ 10min
22 g Cascade @ 5min
22 g Citra @ 5min
57.0 g Cascade @ 1 Minute
57.0 g Citra @ 0 Minute
29.0 g Cascade @ 5 Days (Dry Hop)
29.0 g Citra @ 5 Days (Dry Hop)
29.0 g Citra @ 10 Days (Dry Hop)

Reckon that'll work?

Looks fine, though I would halve the flameout additions. Cascade in particular can get way too vegetal and grassy with huge amounts

I brewed a Rye Saison today. Mostly pils, around 20 % rye, a touch of dark wheat, and some candi syrup to give it colour. Pitched WLP670, which is a saison yeast and brett. No idea which either of the strains are, but its reviewed positively. Its about 30IBUs, mostly styrian goldings with a bit of amarillo at 5mins.

Been meaning to do a mixed fermenation saison for a while, so I hope it turns out well.

I will be doing a 100% brett saison in the next month or so using Brett C.
