So like a fool on the hill, I am dry hopping while cold crashing. Will this screw it up? Hope not I'm very excited about this one.

Nah you should be fine... How long are you planning on cold crashing? Dry hopping typically takes 1-2 weeks at cold temps to have any real effect. So if you are transferring in a couple days you might want to bring the hops with the rest of the beer. (Hopefully you used a hop bag?)

If not, just let it cold crash for at least a week. You'll have crystal clear beer and some nice hop aroma from the dry hopping.

Sweet. I'm planning on transferring in a couple of days. So I'll just keep the hop bag in. Thanks.

I did a modified version of this a few weeks ago. I used MO for the base, swapped out the Vienna for biscuit, and did quarter ounce additions of cascade/Citra at 15 and 10 minutes. I did a half ounce of each at flameout. I skipped the dry hopping and used US-05. I had a little mishap with calculating my strike water volume, so I had a cool mash for a while. This one finished up at 1.008. I just pulled a sample from the fermenter this morning. Very well balanced. The fruity hop flavor comes through but doesn't overwhelm. The complexity of the malt is wonderful. Shame I'm not set-up for an extra keg in the fridge right now, so I have to bottle, which I don't have time for this weekend.

I brewed this yesterday using Maris Otter, a lb of munich, and the 8 oz of C40. Followed your hop schedule though, but will add another ounce of each hop at kegging time in addition to the dry hop. Any idea if simcoe would be a nice dry hop addition to citra/cascade? This should be ready for a July 7th party, thanks for the nice recipe OP!

Brewed this last night, but had to make a last minute change since I was short on 2-row.


7 lbs Vienna Malt (Weyermann) (3.0 SRM) Grain 2 51.9 %
4 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 3 29.6 %
1 lbs Crystal, Medium (Simpsons) (55.0 SRM) Grain 4 7.4 %
1 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 5 7.4 %
8.0 oz Carapils (Briess) (1.5 SRM) Grain 6 3.7 %

Should be interesting.

Fired up this bad boy.... A citra belgian. Very fruity, but not over the top. A tad bitter 75IBU's ... But the sweet Belgian flavor compliments it well.

This has come out very very excellent. I know exactly why everyone raves about Citra aroma... it's just heavenly. The flavor and aroma on this are just amazing. The Vienna gives a nice nutty, sweet malt backbone. Definitely an excellent beer.
