Well, over shot my OG. Came to 1.074. So instead of S-04 I'll be using WLP007 Dry English Ale.

Thermometer went out so I don't know if I hit my desired rest temp or not. I know I was about 2 degrees above my strike temp before it went out. So I waited a couple minutes while stirring then doughed in.

Ran out of propane about 30 minutes into the boil, but I live very close to a home depot and got it back to boiling in less than 15 minutes.

Citra smells amazing. I threw in the 1.5 oz into FWH and it hits you like a ton of bricks.

All in all it sounds like a stressful brew day but it was probably one of the nicest ones I've had. Might have something to do with no sparge and no chill.

Hi, I've not heard of Citra hops before - have you used them before? Would you care to share your impressions and any info you have?

eh, it was no big deal. Actually read most of Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea during the process so I obviously wasn't around like a mad man.

Nope, this is my first time using them. That's why it's the only hop in this recipe. It's a fairly new hop, Sierra Nevada used it as a dry hop in their Torpedo.

I'll definately chime in when this is done. Got the starter churning now.

Quick google search that turned up a lot of messages about Citra being new but not much info, except for this blog entry by the Brew Dudes - http://www.brew-dudes.com/citra-hops/557

Where did you track these hops down? I would love to get my hands on some for next summers IPA.
