1.00 oz Williamette [5.50%] (10 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep) Hops
1.00 oz Williamette [5.50%] (Dry Hop 13days) Hops

1 Pkg California Ale (White Labs #WLP001) Yeast-Ale

I made this as my first simple big beer, and my first original recip. I wanted something a little different, so I chose williamette hops for their earthy grassy flavor, which seemed to overtake the others in terms of aroma and flavor, with a nice hint added by the centenial. Came out fairly dry, could have used another # of malt, but it is just about what I was shooting for. Makes your jaw clench just smelling it, I love this brew and have a feeling that it won't be hanging around too long. I'm gonna have to stash a few away in a hidden place for a few months down the road.

The "First Wort Hops" were added as the water was being heated to a boil after steeping the specialty grains. Carbed after 9 days at 70-72, drink this one fresh and it is true to its name. Tastes like the smell of the bag of williamette, leaves a fresh hop bitterness in your mouth, FOR HOPHEADS ONLY.

After a few weeks, this is one of the best beers I have ever had pass through these lips. Incredibly simple, incredibly tasty brew.

I think it was my third. Made the apartment smell like a hop bomb exploded.

Does it have a citrusy taste or smell to it? I love the recipe but I would want to try a different variety of hops to get a citrusy aroma to it. Any suggestions?

The Hop Juice that's brewed by Two Brothers Brewery here in Chicago. Did you steal their recipe?

To get a citrusy aroma, sub out the willamette for cascade or amarillo.

No, this was the first recipe I ever made from scratch, I believe there are a few other hop juices as well.

cascade amarillo and simcoe(cascade on crack) are citrusy hops.
