I am brewing this excellent beer for a second time, the wifey says it needs to be the house beer and she isn't even a hop fan. On an earlier post Skeezer said you can use 4.75lbs of 2row and drop the extract to 3lbs. If I compare buying 5 lbs of crushed 2 row at $9.20 or 3lbs of DME for $11.99, is it worth the savings? Will the finished product taste any better? I'm steeping for an hour anyway so I'm not adding any work anyway except that I would dunk the grain bag in 170F (another kettle) for 10 minutes and add that sparge to the wort. My other question is for the FWH, would you just add that once the gran bag is out and you are starting to bring the wort to a boil (maybe 10 minutes)? Thanks again Skeezer for such a great beer!

I am glad you and the wife like the beer. If you can maintain a steady temp for an hour, the grain would save some $, but that is really expensive for 2row though (I pay $28 for 50lbs). If you do go with the grain it shouldn't taste much different, if at all. I would just put the FWH in the first pot when you remove the grains to sparge them.

Ok, I fell in love with this at the brewpub last week and went to get a case only to find out it was sold out. It was a long and depressing trip back to PA! I assume after trying to read half of the thread that I need to follow the recipe from post #1 using s-04, correct?

Now I just have to find citra! anyone know of any sources right now?

Hey Tieflyer, I got mine at Weaknee HBS in Pottstown. That was about a month ago, but they usually have a good suppy, and are very nice people. I'm not a big fan of Universal carbonics, but they might have it also.

What are people's thoughts on mashing low and using WLP002 for this beer? Attenuation isn't my question, as 002 does fine if the mash temp is good a low, my question is more the ester profile?

Should be good. I have used WY1968 with good results and they are supposed to be very similar.

They are the same strain. Was your clone with 1968 any closer than the S04?

Both are very close to the original ZD. The difference is not that big, The 1968 had a bit more body, maybe fruitiness, but didn't attenuate as well. I would mash lower when i use it again.
