Brewed an AG version of this, but I subbed Nugget in for my 60 min. addition, just because.
Missed the gravity by a few points, not sure why.. but can't wait to see what the Amarillo brings.

Brewing this one this Saturday. I have seen mention of using 1LBS of
crystal 40, but have not seen any replied results. Better balanced,too sweet? I have 1 pound and tring to decide which way to go.
Personally, I think 1 lb. would be fine. Is this AG? Mash at 150 if so. And what yeast are you using? Final gravity will be a factor in how sweet this is.
I kegged this, and pulled a little sample. It's pure grapefruit juice! This is my first time using Amarillo. Guess I'm going to have to wait for it to mellow.
I loved the early grapefruit sediment heavy days... but have no fear it will mellow out.
Man,... That's a lotta hooch!Steel rig in progressebuild info
