I got them at hopsshack.com. A little pricey at $2.50 per ounce.. They delivered quickly, and replaced a broken package without any problems.

finding pellet hops is tough. The leaf hops seem to be available.

+1 for the 7 day dry hop when I go past that it turns funky/ grassy? Vegetal? Flavor that is less desirable.

I scored a 6 pack of the real deal. It's very good. My clone tastes pretty close to the original so far. I like the citra hops, but I was hoping for a little more bitterness up front. If I were to tweak this and add additional bittering hops up front, which would I use? I'd like something to complement the citra.

Any ideas?

If you just want some bitterness, use something like magnum /warrior/bravo, etc. Not many hops will add much other than bitterness when added early. Columbus/Chinook would add some dank/pine if you bitter some with them. Centennial would play nicely also. You could always go more Citra.

I would do 45 or 1hr since it is more of a mash than steep. You need to give the grain time to convert.

i mashed for 45 minutes. ended up with 1.068 OG. drank a bit much and did an oz. of citra a bit early at 30 minutes. hop schedule ended up looking like...

1 oz = first wort
1 oz = 30 min
1 oz = 15 min
1 oz = 10 min
1 oz = 5 min

and i'll be dry hopping with 3 ounces. the lesson today kids is don't drink too much when brewing. had a Founders Reds Rye, homebrewed Lakefront-ish IPA, Three Floyds bomber of Brian Boru irish red, Sierra Nevada Hoptimum, and something that got lost in the shuffle. also tried to take a preboil OG reading and poured my wort in my tube casing/whatever and contorted it to worthlessness. fun day

So I was looking at the recipe on the first post and am interested in trying an all extract version of the Zombie Dust. I noticed that it says "Here is the extract/PM conversion:" and the original thread states "Here is the extract conversion for anyone interested:" and the two recipes are the exact same. I have been looking at some instructions about partial mashing and am not quite ready to get into it (lack of equipment), and new to the hobby. So can it be done in a basic extract method or is partial mashing absolutely required? Sorry if this is a rookie question and I am just not quite understanding correctly!

If you use the extract recipe in the OP, you don't need to mash. Just steep the specialty grains.

If you use sub some 2row for extract (PM) you will need to mash to convert it.
