Hoping someone can help answer this...

Has anyone ever used Galaxy as a bittering hop and then pure citra for this brew instead of the Citra/Cascade blend throughout?

I think the Galaxy would play nice with Citra, but not sure...

Galaxy is very similar to Citra (I've heard it described as Citra without the cat pee smell/taste.). It's also harder to get, so I wouldn't waste it for bittering.

Well, I did it anyway. Made a Citra/Galaxy pale ale. It is awesome.

No worries. I'm sure it is good.

I'm going to try this on Friday. I was going to try a Zombie Dust clone, but the 8 oz of Citra I thought I had turned out to only be 4 oz.

I tasted mine last night. It was fantastic and easily the best Pale Ale I've made. The only thing I changed was that I used Wyeast 1332, Northwest Ale yeast.

I think I have enough Citra left to make another batch, otherwise I'll have to find some.

Thanks for the awesome recipe, I went with my gut and brewed 10 gallons. This was a huge hit, and my favorite pale ale recipe to date. I'm very excited to have 5 gallons on standby.

I'm going to have to try this soon. Looks like I have everything on hand except for the Munich. Could I replace that with Vienna?
