I used your recipe as a guide for my first non-kit brew tonight. Changed it based on what I could get locally and to try some things out.

1lb 20l
.25 60l

and used Falconers instead of Citra

Otherwise followed recipe. Was hoping for a little caramel flavor with lighter color, might have to just use 20l or 20l + .25 of 40l or even less 60l next time as it is pretty dark. Open for suggestions...

I will try and follow up as time goes on...

I was looking for a simple and quick brew I could do in time to take on the upcoming annual Memorial Day weekend camping trip in about a month. This recipe struck me as exactly what I was looking for. A nice clean simple citrusy ipa.

I only changed 2 things. I used 6.6# of golden light LME instead of the DME. And I used the 1332 northwest ale yeast smack pack from Wyeast. It's fermenting vigorously after about 12 hours. Looks to be a winner so far. I'll keep you posted on the results. Thanks for posting!!!
