I brewed this this Monday! It's been chugging hard ever since just a cpl hours after pitching the yeast and in surprised to with wisconsin getting hit hard with a -42 degree weather I could get my home warmer then 55-60 with it being so cold. Now it's a touch warmer and sitting at 65. The smells coming out of the blow off tube are down right hop heavenly though haha

The recipe looks good though I would have done the hop schedule differently. Simcoe and galaxy are buttering hops so I would have added those at your 30-60min additions and all the citra from 15min-flameout

Galaxy hops, per hopunion: "Typically used as a late addition - the aroma and flavor characteristics become more pronounced the later the addition"

I think simcoe works well at either point, but I'm just a newbie ^^

Haha I hope yours is delicious as well my Sir!! I just racked my IPA into secondary last night and dry hopped with 2 oz of citra. After taking FG I tasted the wort and OMFG it's so delicious and not even done. I can't wait for this one to be done

Oh ok beer smith has galaxy listed as a buttering hop.

I host bottled this brew today! Man is it delicious! It finished at 6.2% it's not even carbed up yet and tastes awesome. My first several beers didn't taste that great at bottling but were great with two weeks in the bottle I can't wait for this one to be ready😈
