Just tasted my hydro sample and it's tasty! Went from 1.064 to 1.016 with WY 1968. Can't wait to try it once it's carbed up.

Thanks for the recipe.

I went for higher mash temps, like 156, and also eliminated any hop addition before 10 mins(except FWH). I used a 50/50 combo of citra and Amarillo for my late additions and it was way closer to the real thing.

I am planning to brew this either tomorrow or Sunday. My plan was to play with the hop schedule a little to get it to an even 8oz of hops just because I'd rather not open a third 4oz bag if i don't have to. Also, my citra is labeled 14% AA instead of the 12.4 listed here.

To clarify, you removed the 15min addition?

I was thinking of keeping all of the additions, just reducing the later additions some, along the lines of:

.75oz FWH
1 oz 15min
1 oz 10min
1 oz 5min
1.25oz 1min
3oz Dry Hop

This with my 14%AA citra is giving me an similar ibu rating to the original according to brewtarget. Thoughts?

That should work well but I still truly believe that using 100% Citra just adds a flavor thatis not in the real thing(I know, I know, they say they use all Citra). I did remove the 15 min addition because I felt that the malt profile was being masked(also why I mashed a little higher). I tried this once using Centennial as my FWH and even it, I believe, was closer to the real thing.

Certainly there are other variables in the whole process and maybe the Cita I use isn't as good of quality as what they use. My Citra was also 14% AA.

First time having this beer tonight, as it's not available in NY (out of town in the Midwest on business, was lucky enough to snag a 6-er). The only thing I can say is that there is definitely some Amarillo in this beer. The nose, and even the taste, remind me a little of Dogfish 60 minute. I've done SMaSH beers with Amarillo, and this is the aroma, no doubt. Not sure if it was covered anywhere in the thread, but I think the idea that this is a Citra-only beer is off base (even if maybe it had started that way). Either way, a very, very nice offering.

Mashed in 10 gallons 45 min ago. Man, I love this recipe. 6th time brewing it. I also got 14% citra, so I scaled back the flavor additions and will use the remaining hops in a 30 min aroma steep at 180 F.

I can't read through all 105 pages.

I'm confused on the first wort hopping (at 20 minutes boil---what?) and why it isn't adding as much bitterness?

My calculated bitterness for this brew is huge. The first post addresses it, but i'm still confused.

skeezerpleezer - or anyone that has brew the updated recipe on PG 1

Question: Why is sugar not used to dry this IPA out (AG version)?

Seem like it would be necessary. Am i wrong?

Kind of want to do a citra bomb this weekend, recipe looks tasty.

Tasted this side by side with the real thing the other day and it was so close to the same, i would say the difference was my lack of water treatment and mine was 5 months old. Its cloned.
