I brewed the following recipe 8 days ago (matching skeezer's last recipe). It smells wonderful and the krausen has all ready started to drop. I will be substituting the dry hopping with 3 oz of Nelson Sauvin. I dropped and broke yet ANOTHER hydrometer so no OG reading unfortunetly (need to stop drinking before the boil )


Saf ale US04- 1 pack

10.5# Brewers 2Row Malt
1.00 Munich
8oz Carpils Caramel Pils Malt
8oz Melanoidin Malt
8oz Crystal 60L

.75 oz Citra (First Wort Hop)
1.25 oz Citra [12.40%] (15 min)
1.25 oz Citra [12.40%] (10 min)
1.25 oz Citra [12.40%] (5 min)
1.25 oz Citra [12.40%] (1 min)

3.00 oz Nelson Sauvin (Dry Hop 10 days)

Mashed at 154 (dropped to 151 after 1 and half hours)

I'm going to revisit this recipe in the near future and try a 2nd run at it when I have more time to brew it slower. Need to clean up my brew space and organize it a bit better for my next run.
What numbers did you hit?

1.25 oz Citra [12.40%] (1 min) Hops 1.8 IBU
3.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (Dry Hop 10 days) Hops -
1 Pkgs California Ale (S-05) ***
1 Pkgs SafAle English Ale (S-04) ***

***I plan to split this into 2 carboys (3g each), and use S-05 in one and S-04 in the other to see how the yeast changes the flavor. I don't imagine either will be bad.

The changes from the last recipe I posted:
-I would end with about 1 extra oz of Citra that I don't want to re-seal since I still have about 2.5 lbs, so will add a bit more at the 5 and 1 minute additions.
-I had an extra .125 lbs of Munich, so I went ahead and threw it in.
-I forgot I left my 2-row with a friend prior to the move. I had 55 lbs of Pilsner on hand, so used it rather than driving to a brew shop (will be doing a 90 minute boil).

Fairly new to brewing but I fell in love with Zombie Dust and just stumbled upon this site.

Did the change to Pilsner make much of a difference?

Also...Citra Hops...can't find them anywhere in stock

I didn't notice any difference using pilsner. I will use 2row next time since it cheaper, pilsner was all I had on hand last time.

I am not sure where to find citra hops. Luckily I still have several pounds of it.

Has anyone attempted to dry hop this in a corny while force carbing?

Obviously I am worried about it getting too grassy but the thought of keeping all that great Citra aroma on tap is just too tempting.

Hoping to brew this next week. Going to follow skeezerpleezer's latest recipe.

I dryhopped a different IPA with an 1.5 ounces of citra in the keg and now 5 weeks in am getting grassy. Tastes started after 3-4 weeks.

I don't think it's a matter of it necessarily being in a keg, just that the hops sit on the beer until the entire keg is drunk. How long have you had dry hops on your keg before it's finished? The furthest I've lasted was 5 weeks or so and it was getting grassy for me.

If you dry hopped in a bag you could remove them.
