    I get huge CAT PEE from citra when it's a very young beer. I had some fresh citra IPA from a
    fellow forum member that was quite good, but did have a very strong "catty" aroma and flavor.

  • Posted in thread: Safale S-04 Fermentation Temp Slightly Low on 05-18-2015 at 03:26 PM
    Actually, S-04 tends to toss a few off-flavors above 62 to begin with. That said, dropping 10
    degrees at high kraussen isn't necessarily the most desirable thing from a yeast activity
    standpoint. Howe...

    I also agree with Warthaug. I vaguely remember someone doing this, but using a blow-off tube
    and gravity to drop the CO2 into the secondary vessel. This way it eliminates most of the
    cleanliness and t...

    This would certainly help purge the carboy of oxygen. However 2 things come to mind:1. Is there

    a chance ...

  • Posted in thread: Using citra or galaxy for citrus flavor in a Blonde on 04-24-2015 at 07:09 PM
    I have heard that, cat piss smell, about simcoe and mosaic that's why I was a little skeptical
    when some mention them as citrus type hops.I've actually experienced this same odor/flavor with
    Citra in ...

    However, super saturated solution (IE at room temperature, it would be more highly saturated
    than what it could normally hold), so it WILL begin to crystalize out of solution once the
    temperature is r...

    mechanism. I pr...
