I would also ask how do you behave with carbonation: CO2 volumes and types of sugar used.
I care to have your own opinion before brewing 6 gal of this nectar
I have never used 1318, but by the sounds of it, it would work well.

For the carb, I usually keg, so carb to around 2.5, then push with around 13psi on the regulator. If bottling, I use this calculator to determine how much priming sugar (I use corn sugar for priming): http://hbd.org/cgi-bin/recipator/recipator/carbonation.html

Just got this in secondary with dry hops. Oh WOW does this taste good. Yeast did great job 1.008. This is going to be difficult to wait for.

Thanks for the advices. Since in Italy find citra hops is almost impossible, I tried on ebay looking for a seller available to do International Shipping. Having found it, there’s nothing left but order a good deal and start brewing. I will try to use the 1318 and you'll know the results, even if without having the original beer is difficult to make accurate comparisons…

I didn't had crystal 60, only 40 on hand. So I added 4 oz of amber malt to compensate and now kicking myself for doing that since it came out little darker than it should. Wort also smelled little toasty. Did i ruin the batch? What should I expect?

You should maybe expect a darker version , but damn fine beer. You didn't add enough to change it much. Its a hop forward beer, 4oz of amber wont affect it.

Sparky, you got my attention! I just bought a bag of Maris Otter ($40, gotta love group buys!) I have a big stout to do this weekend, but will try to do a new ZD with MO. I haven't used it before, so I ask anyone that has to chime in. Should it be all MO for base malt, or 50:50 MO/2row?

Good deal 40 for 50lbs! Alright I'm new to brewing beer so what the difference between the two? I've haven't brewed with MO yet. Is it just for stouts and porters?

I don't have any Munich. What are everyone's thoughts on subbing Victory?

If you are going for a clone then get the grains it calls for, you will possibly regret it if just that one grain threw it off. The main focus for this err is getting the best citra hops you can.
