Glad it came out well. The magnum at the beginning may be key here. I've noticed lately that I like Amarillo for aroma much more than I do for bittering. Also, the slight addition of MO sounds great, the time I made this recipe with only MO I didn't care for it. With the amount you used i could imagine it lending a a nice toasty note to the beer.

Cheers!

I'll have to remember try magnum next time for bittering. I made this again and dry hopped with .50oz of citra. It's in the keg just not on tap yet.

The .50oz of citra hops is outstanding in this beer. On tap now and this is the best beer I ever tasted.

When did you add the citra? Glad this beer seems to be working out for most. It's such a simple base that really allows room for experimentation.

Dry hopped in secondary. Used .50oz of citra hops for 7 days. Still on tap and still a rockin brew.

Just stumbled across this thread while looking for a recipe for a lighter beer and Amarillo hops, I like the look of the original recipe and will have a bit of a play with it and post what I come up with. I've also got a bag of Citra in the freezer so might brew two of them and do one with each variety just for comparison sake. We're coming into summer here so I need some nice easy drinking beers for the warm days!

*edit* here's what I came up with, I'm doing a bastardised BIAB/cooler method and only brewing in 12 litre batches as A. that is as much as my pot can handle, and B. it gives me more experience without having to consume 20L of beer for each experiment.

http://www.brewtoad.com/recipes/amarillo-blonde-6
OG: 1.051, FG: 1.015, 28 IBU, 5 SRM, 4.7% ABV

2.4kg Pale Ale malt 81%
280g Vienna 9%
280g Caramel 10L 9%

8g Pacific Jade 13.1% @60min
10g Amarillo 8.2% @10min
10g Amarillo @2min

US-05

My wife and I both like our beers hoppy, but I'm not sure if in this case the two later additions will be too much for this kind of beer? It seems mild compared to the last few I've brewed, but they've all be 6%+ IPAs...
The Citra are a bit stronger at 13.5%AA, so I think I'll knock the bittering addition back to 6g to keep it at 28IBU. I'm using the Pacific Jade for bittering simply because they're there, and it seems like a waste to put Amarillo in that early in the boil!

How did this turn out with the Citra?

I dry hopped mine with .50oz of Citra. It was amazing, only problem is the Citra faded by the end of the keg. May have to up the Citra a little more.

Was looking for a lighter beer to try, found this thread. This grain bill is what I was thinking of, but with Amarillo hops and US-05 yeast. How did this turn out? Maybe use Magnum hops for bittering, then Amarillo for the late additions?
