Default All-Grain - Citra Pale Ale

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP001 California Ale
Yeast Starter: 2L starter
Batch Size (Gallons): 6
Original Gravity: 1.052
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 36.4
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 7.5
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 @ 68F
Additional Fermentation: Cold crash 1 week prior to kegging
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): dry hop 7 days in primary after initial 14 days
Tasting Notes: Peach and fresh orange, well balanced bitterness with malty backbone

Calculated at 77% efficiency.

Ingredients:

10.0 lb 2-Row Brewers Malt
.5 lb American Vienna
.5 lb American Munich
.5 lb Crystal Malt 40°L

.5 oz Magnum (14.5%) - 60 min
.25 oz Citra (11.1%) - 10.0 min
.25 oz Cascade (5.5%) - 10.0 min
.25 oz Citra (11.1%) - 1.0 min
.25 oz Cascade (5.5%) - 1.0 min
.25 oz Citra (11.1%) - 0.0 min (added to whirlpool)
.25 oz Cascade (5.5%) - 0.0 min (added to whirlpool)
1.0 oz Citra (11.1%) - dry hop
1.0 oz Cascade (5.5%) - dry hop


Mash at 154 for 60 minutes. All pellet hops.



This one came out great. It's nice and bold with peachy and orange zest flavors, a big citrus hoppy aroma, and a nicely balanced bitterness. Dropped very clear after cold crashing and kegging (the picture doesnt depict the clarity properly, it's clear and bright in the glass).

Looks great, still new with a few AG batches under my belt. But I looove Citra Hops. Might be just what I was looking for. How are you dry hopping?

Dry hopped with loose pellets directly into the carboy after fermentation winds down. About a week on the dry hops. My tasting notes on this one indicate that the malt balance was a little low, if I were to do it again I would probably replace the Vienna with something like Victory or Biscuit to amp up the complexity a bit and give the beer a more malty backbone to stand up to the over-the-top tropical flavors from the Citras

Brewed this recipe yesterday. Substituted in a Belgium yeast to create a Citra-Belgique. Will followup in a month and let you know how it turned out.

I've been working up a citra brew in my head for the last couple weeks or so. This might just push me over the edge. Let me know how all of yours turn out

Cheers
