This is my second night of drinking this. I've never had the original but this is a tasty brew. I'm glad I brewed ten gallons.
I only brewed it 4 weeks ago tomorrow.

In order to conserve my precious Citra reserve, I'm going to FWH with something neutral with higher AA (maybe Apollo). Going with US-04 in the low 60's. Wish me luck, and thanks to the OP for such a solid recipe!
Carapils and carafoam are basicaly the same thing. Carafoam is a trademark name from Weyerman, Carapils is Briess.

I used Magnum at 60 (.5 oz ) for my last 5 gal batch. No FWH just added at 60. Turned out great.

Looking for some guidance on my ZD clone. Finished low at 1.011. Sg 1.064. Extract. S04Only bottled a week but my football team is so bad I needed a diversion.

Never had the real deal so I don't know what to expect. It smells amazing but the finish is pretty bitter. Thinking it's bc the beer is green but can someone who has had the commercial version comment on the bitterness at the end. It drinks ok and is already very well carbonated but its not the amazing beer I hear about.

Thanks.

What was your hop schedule like? This is a tough recipe to do extract with. Hard to FWH, can't control unfermentables with mash temp. Did you partial mash the specialty grains? If so at what temp.

It's tough to say a beer isn't as amazing as you thought it would be when it's you that made it. It is a very good recipe, and not overly bitter for an APA. What other APA or Ipa's would you compare the bitterness to?

Just finished reading all 81 pages of this thread. I've never had ZD before but this is going to be my next brew.

Sparge or mash? Sparge temp isn't critical, I sparge around 180 WATER temp.

Mash temp is 152.
