Thanks for the reply! I have a bunch of saved 05 that I was planning to use. I want to enter this into the local homebrew comp this spring. Hope you dont mind me stealing it! It will need to be clear-ish so I dont lose any points.

I have been going to Grand Haven for YEARS and have never checked out Oddsides. WTF! Will be a regular there this summer. I hear they fill growlers and let you "bring your own food" is that correct?

It will clear, no worries. I have some pretty clear stuff here. Can see through the glass and see the logo on the other side easily.

If you haven't had Oddsides, you are missing something. I'm from GA, and had it while up there for work. It's super good stuff there. Their Citra Pale Ale is widely loved, amongst places like BeerAdvocate and such. It's a good, good easy drinking beer that showcases a good hop.

hey fatc1ty, just tried mine last night, been in the keg for 10 days and it doesnt seen to have much body to it.. I know it's a PA, but it's a little on the watery side with a great hop smell and initial taste. I had it in primary for 10 days, secondary for 10 days and now in the fridge on gas for 10 days.. How long before you felt the beer fully " matured " ?

Thanks man!
Last question(s) about water; how much did you mash with and what was your pre-boil volume?

It's gonna be light bodied for sure. I felt that after 2.5 weeks in the keg, it really hit the sweetspot. I think you are only a few days off. What volumes are you carbing to?

What was your finished gravity? This beer needs to finish around 1.012 or 1.013. I mashed at 152*, and felt that I easily could have done 154 and not get it too heavy.

I set mine to 10psi and leave it.

I mashed in with around 4.8 gallons of water, and mashed at 152*. Sparge with just shy of 5 gal. Preboil is normally around 7.25 gallons to get to my 5.5 gal in the fermenter.

Your volumes may vary, along with kettle size, and boil off rate.

I have mine set at 10 psi for 10 days in a 38 degree fridge.. FG was about 1.013 also mashed about 152 - 154 5.5 gallon boil

Give it another week, and see then. I felt this beer was "ready" to drink taste wise after a week on the gas myself. I thought it really hit the high point a week or two after that in the keg. It cleared out, and the aroma and flavor really got concentrated and it was exactly what I was looking for.

Body wise, mine felt just like the original from what I could remember. If it's not where you want it, then perhaps the beer might be too light bodied for your tastes. Could attempt to mash higher next time, and alter the recipe to give you a fuller body. I tend to like my Pales and IPA's on the light to light-medium body myself, so this fit the bill.

Just bottled this on Saturday. I followed the recipe quite closely, but as I mentioned, accidentally only bought 5 oz of Citra and so had to eliminate the 1min and end-of-boil additions. I also used White Labs WLP001. The flat beer tasted delicious, and the aroma was amazing. I also really liked the body the wheat gave it. I will hold off on a full evaluation until I have some carbonated, but I think some more flavor additions would have been useful--though of course, I already under did it relative to the recipe myself!
