11oz Crystal 60
4LB Golden Light DME
2oz Corn Sugar

1.3 oz Citra (14.1a%) @ 15 min
.55 oz Citra @ 10 min
.35 oz Citra @ 5 min
.35 oz Citra @ Flameout

1/2tsp Irish Moss @ 10 min

Pitched rehydrated Nottingham Yeast.

OG - 1.050 (although my thermometer broke moments before so I don't know the temp of the wort to make the proper adjustment)

Going to ferment in 5gal glass carboy until gravity stays same for three days, then dry hop 1oz Citra for 7 days. All just in the primary.

Had a couple mistakes. The one listed above about the temperature of my wort sample for measuring OG. Also forgot to put grain bag or strainer over funnel when pouring wort into carboy. I'll just tie a grain bag to the end of my auto-syphon when I rack to keg.

Took me a little over two hours counting clean up. Could probably get this done in under two hours with wort chiller though.
Looks good. Although you adjusted the amounts, I'm curious to see how the higher %aa and more pronounced flavor profile on the Citra will come through. Keep us posted. I think I might try a 2.5 gallon test batch with Citra for comparison with the Cascade version. Cheers.

Well, I fubared this one. Watching football, drinking beer, and brewing made me FORGET I was going to add orange peel and coriander to the boil

So, it was a plain old 15 minute cascade with s-04. Still delicious, but no experimenting w/ the extras.

Next time!!

BTW - it's 24 hours and it's been going apes**t since very early this morning. I was up at 6am and it was already bubbling like mad. Still going crazy at 8pm tonight.

Mistake 2 was i decided to use my 7 gal kettle, The wort literally jumped out of the kettle once I added the hops!
My only real concern is that I hope I don't get any astringency for the steeped grain being at 180. I don't think they were at that temp for very long since I was heating up at the time. (Maybe a couple of minutes above 170)
I made a English brown ale where it hit 180 steeping the grains and there was astringency for a while, but it mellowed out after a month or so. Fear not, conditioning works wonders.

So we are looking at a 2 hour brew day including clean up with a wonderful tasting hoppy yet sweet caramel flavored pale ale. And since its extract and with such a big hop bill you only need to boil the extract for 15 MINUTES!

Pours a nice copper/reddish color with a 1 finger head that sticks around leaving a nice lacing down the glass.


Grain/Extracts

6lbs Light Dry Malt Extract added to the boil
1lbs Crystal 60 add the grains to the water and steep until the water temp reaches 170 and pull them out.

Hops

2.5oz Cascade 7.5% AA at 15 min
1oz Cascade 7.5%aa at 5 min
.50 oz Cascade 7.5% at flameout
1oz Cascade 7.5% dry hop 7 days after primary fermentation has wrapped up.
I do like the sound of only a 15 min boil. I may have to try doing this sometime soon

7 days in and hit 1.010 with rehydrated notty. Planned to let it sit a few more days but went ahead and dry hopped tonight since the gravity was so low. Dry hopped 1oz Citra. Going to give this seven more days then use my new kegerator for the first time. 14 days is a quick fermentation, but remember my batch is about 3.8gal.

Anything I need to know about putting 3.8gal into a 5gal keg? I was just gonna let it get cold in there for 24 hours and the hook up 30psi for another 24 hours. Then disconnect co2 and let out pressure. Reconnect to 10 psi and give it my first taste. Sound alright?

No difference in a keg with lower volume - you'll jut use more co2 to fill up the headspace.

My routine is 30 x 24 hours, 20 x 24 hours then 10.

Agree with Fly. Only difference is I usually pressurize, then purge to remove any air from the keg before pressurizing and letting it sit. Probably just paranoid...but I do it anyways.
