I hope it lasts that long! I brewed a 5.5 gallon batch but didn't compensate enough water in the boil for the whole leaf citra soaking some of it up...so I ended with a little over 4 gallons (after secondary and kegging). I highly intend on doing 10 gallons next time around.

Just wondering how do you do first wort hopping with an extract brew?

Has anyone successfully come up with a lower ABV version of this amazing recipe? I'd love to get this down around 5%ABV or so...is it as simple as cutting out some of the 2-row and maye scaling back the boil hops just a bit?

If steeping the grains for 30 min or so, I would just steep the FWH in another bag during that time, the using them during the boil also. Paint strainer bags are cheap at home depot, and can be had in 1g or 5g sizes.

I haven't tried to, but if you have beersmith you can have it scale it down with the scale function. If you only drop 2row and bittering hops it may end a bit maltier and sweeter. It would probably still end up good. If I was in the states and had access to beer smith I would help more. If no one else does by Friday I can run some #s for you.

At Sunday's club meeting there were 5 homebrew versions of zombie dust as well as the real thing on tap. We compared them all and several club members told me that this recipe was the best beer. This is my 2nd batch of this recipe and I absolutely love it.

What is the final AG recipe that has come out of this thread? I really want to make this beer, but I'd love it if someone would save me the trouble of searching through 43 pages.

I'm pretty sure various people have different takes on it since this recipe doesn't seem to originate from 3Floyds. The OP's recipe seems to be well-received and is updated on post 1 as he makes changes.

This is a great beer! I have had a lot of zombie dust and this pretty close.
