Crystal 40: .4lb

Hops:

I did a gallon batch with all Citra, turned out great, but you have to like the Citra flavor.

For my gallon I did:
0.25oz. At 60min.
0.25oz. At 15 min.
0.5oz. At end of boil

Used honey for priming.

Are there any commercial beers that just use Citra? Wouldn't mind trying one or two to see what the fuss is about!

There's a good one from a small Michigan brewery. Oddside Citra Pale Ale.

http://www.oddsideales.com/ourbrews.html

I'm not sure of more widely distributed examples.

Three Floyds Zombie Dust is all citra I believe. I don't know how widely distributed that is, but its well known around Chicago at least

I did a pale ale with Citra, Centennial and Cascade in equal parts including 1.5oz dryhop (0.5oz each) and it was the best beer I've made hands down. Awesome hop for pale ales and IPA.

Thirsty Dog has a Citra IPA called Citra Dog.

I make a pale ale that is an ounce of Citra @ 10 min, and 2 ounces at FO (hopstand at 170 for 45 minutes). I don't even dry hop it, though it would be tasty that way as well. Actually tastes very similar to Citra Dog (just fewer IBUs and obvious lack of dry hop).

Good stuff if you like the hop. I know some don't. I get a lot of mango from Citra.

Yeah your recipe should turn out good. I get mango notes from it also, a tropical fruit kind of thing but it is also a little dank to me. Pairing it with simcoe or columbus accentuates that.

Ditch the columbus and substitute centennial. The late use of citra is spot on.

I would keep the columbus, I've used it with the citra specifically and it works well. 3 of my favorite hops. I really like the recipe, please post up the results....might have to retro-engineer this.....lol.
