mine finished at about 1.012/1.013 with S-04. I fermed at 62 ambient.

This beer is very unique from other IPA's i've had. I'm thinking about making this one of next ones. It's hard to believe it's all Citra, guess I'll have to try it out and see for myself.

If you like IPA's don't hesitate to brew it. It is a bit different, but in a very good way!

I know the questionable relevance, but Im noobish to homebrewing- I want to brew the extract version of Zombie Dust but am having trouble finding vendors that supply in appropriate quantities. I.E. I want to buy 1 lb of Munich Malt instead of 3 or 4 and deal with left overs and so on, any suggestions for a vendor?

Austin Homebrew lets you do fractional amounts and so does Brewmasters Warehouse. I'm sure many others do as well. Just Google those if you want to check them out.

Holy hops Batman! Brewed this yesterday and with fermentation bubbling away in my basement back closet, the whole basement smells like Citra... and I even cut out 3/4 oz at the 15min addition to drop the IBU down to 47. SWMBO came downstairs this morning and noticed it right away. I'm not a hop-head, so this will be quite the stretch for me. At least it gave me a chance to both do some hop-bursting for the first time as well as finally try brewing with Citra.

Wow! This is probably the best beer I have ever made, and I have made exactly 76 batches. Hoppy goodness. Not too bitter. CITRA!

Note to self: Don't tell everyone you know about your Zombie Dust Clone; they will take it all away from you. Only three bottles left!

I brewed this up today and hit the numbers dead nuts on. I'm lucky enough to be very near 3F's and can drive over and get Zombie when I need to...Which I will be doing soon to compare.

That said, I've seen a lot of people say it's good...but I've not found someone who has had ZD and how it compares to this. I guess I can comment in 3 weeks or so but hoping to hear some triangle tasting notes.
