I have seen in another thread you (skeezer) mentioned that galaxy, while not perfect, is a good substitution for citra. how about amarillo? i have 4 oz of Citra - where would you substitute another hop?

I would say galaxy and motueka are good subs for citra. Obviously you could bitter with a different hop and be ok. If it were me I would use some citra spread out over all the late additions and dry hopping and combine that with whatever you have on hand. I get more in your face citrus from amarillo then tropical flavors like citra. If that's what you got then go with it should still.be a great beer.

Yeah, Galaxy is similar IMO. You needing a sub for Amarillo, or planning to use it in place of Citra. If subbing for Citra, others have had good results with using it in this recipe.

i am a newbie as far as hops go. couldn't i just bitter with something else - a clean bittering hop? Or would that impact flavor?

Just tasted my first glass of the extract recipe.. Amazing!! I am lucky enough to have some actual zombie at home and i did a taste test/comparison.. taste is spot on! the color was a bit off but i am sure my miss calculation on volume (4.2 gallons) had something to do with that.. plus i could care less about color ....A big thanks to Skeezer!!

My buddy just picked up 2 cases of ZD from the brewery. 12 of those babies are coming my way, and I intend to brew this clone to compare (if I can keep them around long enough..)

Has anyone done both the extract and the all grain recipe? Is there a big difference in taste/color between the two?
