Also on a related note: I have some citra hops, any thoughts on dry hopping a hefe with those?
thanks in advance!
I recently used the Yeast cake from a Belgian Ale using WLP500 and put a Hefe on it. It is almost ready to keg and it tastes fantastic. I would say definately go for it. I didn't dry hop. I addded some corriander and orange peel.
