Seriously, that sucks. I can't brew without inspiration of some sort (home brew preferably). Good for you though, major dedication as far as I'm concerned.

I schedule brew days up to a month ahead in her calendar, and take our oldest child outside with me. Everyone wins. The boy plays "trucks", the wife gets a bit of a break, and I get a brew.

I'm going to brew this on Sunday, but I'm probably going to dryhop with amarillo, and possibly try out some Denny's 50 rather than 1056. I did it to spec last time (and it was awesome) but I think it...

Ok, so I've got this on tap and it is awesome! I've picked up the specialty grains I need to make this again, but was thinking of using citra for the dry-hop addition. Thoughts? Anyone tried that?
