Went to check on your new water quality skeeter. The Consumer Confidence Report for Roswell told me nothing about hardness levels, or mineral content. Really pretty though, and someone needs to explain what a maximum contaminant level goal is. I believe the entire report is wrong in that column. (I do this report for my city)

You will have to check with the plant and hopefully get someone that can help.

Brewed a 6 gallon batch (all grain) on Sunday and rather than having four late hops additions, I first wort hopped and then just continuously hopped the beer for the last 15 minutes. Throw a pellet, wait a beat. Throw a pellet, wait a beat.

Just to make things more interesting, I split the batch in to two carboys and pitched S-04 into one and Notty in the other.

I'll let you know how it turned out.

Would it be Skeezer's latest? Also, will the color be close to this (if not what adjustment would you recommend?:

I bottled my latest try Monday (latest recipe split into 2 fermenters with S-04 and S-05). I usually keg, but since it was only 2-2.5g of each and i had about 50 empty bombers i decided to bottle. The hydrometer samples were good, with S-04 being a little fruitier and less bitter. It also finished a couple points higher (1.017). I may crack one of each this weekend. there is a picture showing the colors on page 7 of this thread.

Finished my 1st batch of this with US-05, based on the second recipe posted by Skeezerpleezer (with 1.13 lbs of munich). Finished at 1.017, not sure why so high as I hit OG very closely. Fermented at 64 degrees for 7 days, then down to 59 for 2 weeks to settle. I actually did a secondary on this and then just filtered before kegging with a 1 micron filter. It is beautiful and sparkling clear. Smell is heavenly, and the taste is fantastic even though not dry hopped yet. Has a strong citrus flavor with a hint of tropical something- I can't quite put my finger on it. Delicious. I have it keg hoping right now on 3 oz of citra pellets in a hop bag. Can't wait to smell it after this!

It has a lovely flavor, not too bitter (just about perfect for my tastes), and has a nice crispness that I think may have been due to my actually checking the mash pH and adding 2.5 ml of 88% lactic acid when I found it was too alkaline (despite treating my water).

Skeezerpleezer- just want to thank you for this recipe. It is fantastic.

I'm planning on doing an extract version of this, that is slightly more beefed up. Here's my recipe so far...

1 lb. Carafoam malt (steeping)
1 lb. Caramel Wheat malt (steeping)
1 lb. Melanoiden Malt (steeping)
6lb. light LME (at 155)
3lb. wheat LME (at 155)
1.00 oz Citra with 20 minutes to go during steep (leave at 155 after adding LME, before boil)
1.25 oz Citra at 15 mins
1.25 oz Citra at 10 mins
0.75 oz Citra at 5 mins
1.00 oz Citra at flameout
3.50 oz Citra dry hop 10 days
California Ale Yeast

Kshuler- glad the enjoyed the recipe. The smell does get way better after the dryhopping, so you have something to look forward to. I know I have seen a lot of people complain of Citra making a "cat piss", or onion, or other smells, but I am with you on this with the citrus/tropical. Perhaps it is due to not having any 60min bittering addition and almost all hops at the end? I have never had an issue with any other beers using lots of Citra either. I would like to have someone that doesn't like Citra try this and see what they think. I really like the bitterness/alcohol balance with the loads of hop flavor in this one. Kinda surprised myself and friends that have tried it that i came up with this recipe. As for fg, I think my last S-05 was 1.064-65/1.015. S-04 finished at 1.017.

I wish I had your some of your equipment (rims/filtering).

GodOfThunder-
Have you ran #s in beersmith? If not I can when I get back home Thursday. I would consider changing the wheat DME to light DME. Maybe upping the ibus a bit also to help balance the additional gravity. Also, you may consider adding some of the DME later in the boil. I only did 2 extract recipes, neither hoppy beers, so dont know for sure, but adding it at different times helps hop utilization. Perhaps someone with more extract ipa experience will chime in on that. I imagine it will be a good beer either way. Let me know if you want the beersmith #s.

No, I haven't ran the numbers. This is actually only my second batch, and I was just winging it based on your recipe, and hoping for the best.

I just ran them on another calculator and get OG 1.074, 79IBUs. Hopefully 1.019 FG. Seems pretty good...

I know what I have isn't really going to give me a Zombie Dust clone, but more of a wheat pale ale with Citra (I think).

I appreciate any advice.
