Has anyone swapped Falconers flight for Citra?
Also do you have any recommendations on how much zest I would need for a 10 gallon batch.
A friend at a local brewery who dislikes Citra was just complaining to me that his Falconer's Flight IPA tastes too much like Citra, so I think that it's a pretty solid substitute.
For 10gal I used 8 minneola tangerines, 8 blood oranges, 4 limes, 4 lemons, 6 honey tangerines, and two grapefruit - 32 pieces total, heavy on the orange-type fruits. Somewhere in that ballpark will be good.
