Just cracked my first one of these. Did three weeks primary, four weeks in bottles. Very good. I love citra hops so I knew this would be a hit for me.

My only concern is this is by far my cloudiest beer. My beers had been getting clearer and clearer after adding irish moss and using of a wort chiller.

oh well. taste great.

Brewed today but I stole the hopping schedule for a Maris Otter/Citra SMASH and used WLP041.

Excited to finally get this brewed this weekend. Just wondering, has anyone done a whirlpool or hopstand at the end of the boil with this? I usually whirlpool and let stand for a total of 30 min or so. Just wondering if I should lower my FWH to account for any extra isomerization, or just start cooling at KO. Thanks for any feedback.

I'll be doing that when I brew this in a few weeks - this is tentatively the hop schedule I was thinking of using:

.75 oz FWH
1.5 oz 10 min
3.75 oz hot-steep 30 mins
3 oz dry hop

I'm not going for an exact clone so I just designed this based on past experience for what I thought would work well.

Racked this to secondary today. Gravity reading was at 1.020. Wonder if it will drop lower or if it's done. It's only been in primary for 10 days so I'm hoping I get a few more points out of it. Added 3 oz Citra dry hop in a 1gal paint strainer bag with some marbles to weigh it down. Hydrometer tasted great. Solid IPA bitterness and just a ton of fruity flavor. Tasted pretty citrusy, reminded me ever so slightly of Sweetwater IPA.

Anchor, thanks for the feedback, I like your thinking. I tinkered with the hopping just a bit. My Citra is 13.9AA, so I knocked the FWH down to .5oz and lowered the 15min addition to 1oz. I'm gonna knock out with 2oz and whirlpool for about 15-20 min before turning on the chiller. Should keep me around 67 IBU'S or so. Gonna brew it up tomorrow. I'll update in a few weeks. Thanks Skeez for all the hard work on this one!
