Thanks for the link, very helpful. If I make all the citra late additions, do I need a bittering hop for the full boil or will I get enough bitterness just from the lAte addition citra?

If you can bear to wait a couple weeks and plan on pasteurizing anyways, I would skip the keg carbing and just bottle and let it carb naturally. Just my 2 cents but seems much easier

Steeping grains question

So this is a rookie question but if I'm buying grains for steeping (crystal malt), would I want it to be milled at the LHBS or keep them as whole grains?
