Brewed a 3+ gallon all grain ZD today with citra and a few other hops. Did the hop bursting method with 2 - 4 different hops per interval. Was the boil aromatic. Everything was going fine til about 8+ minutes before flame out. The propane ran out but had a back up canister ready. Dang was it a long day but there's room in the temperature closet so why not.

Going to dry hop with citra remnants along with cascade and maybe something else. Should be interesting.

Pitched safale us-04 at 4 pm yesterday then checked this morning around 9 am. Wow that yeast is active. It was bubbling every second. Am I the only one who smiles hearing an active bubbler?

Mine has been in the keg for exactly seven days now. This beer is AMAZING! I know it's called an "American Pale Ale", but it definitely fits the IPA paramaters a little more closely. Either way, this is a phenominal beer that won't last long around my house. Now the challenge is to duplicate this beer, but have it come in around 4.5% ABV so I can drink it in greater quantities!

Glad you liked it. I am actually pondering going the other way, and doing an imperial version (9-10%).

I got my last batch kegged a couple days ago. It is damn good also.

So what's everyone's verdict on the best yeast to use for this beer?

My 3rd attempt is just about finished in primary and I used Wyeast ESB 1968 this time.

It's seems most people like using the dry yeast for this beer. Is that just because of availability & cost, or do you prefer the flavour?

Cheers

I've brewed a total of 24 gallons using 1968. I think it is damn close to perfect (I've got plenty of the real thing to taste against).

skeezer - Gravity has now reached 1.012 from 1.064. The nearly 2 per second bubbles have almost silenced and it's been only 4 days. Tasted the sample and it's light tasting with a bit of body, slightly bitter and grape fruity...very nice.

I usually wait about 10 days or so before a 5 day dry hop. Then do the cold crash.

Would you recommend moving the schedule up being that the gravity reads such?

I used 1968 and the beer turned out fantastic.
