Any thoughts with Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo and Citra? I have these on hand and I'm liking to try this recipe tomorrow.

Ah man didn't notice the activity from the 20th.

Weight wise, I'm not sure. I do know that the dried zest you usually buy has pith on it whereas using a microplane zester only gets the good stuff. I'll weigh it out next time if I remember, but it'll be wet weight of course.

The three C's and Amarillos sounds like it'll work. It'll be different but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

I brewed a Citra/Cascade that was amazing.
Only zested with orange/ tangerine.

Great recipe Bovineblitz! A friend of mine made this and it was probably the best homebrew I've ever had.

Brewed another batch with Coriander addition at 5 min.
1oz Williamette at 60min, 1oz Cascade at 15min and flame out.

I'm going to zest up some orange, tangerine, grapefruit and try the vodka infusion 3 days before bottling.
I justed didn't get the citrus "punch" adding it at flameout last time.

Ill have to try this. Never used Sorachi Ace. Looking for a light summer sit-in-the-pool beer. Sick of hefes, and a good old fashioned hop forward hoppy wheat pale with zest sounds great.

What fruit profiles would you recommend. Citra gives good mango and grapefruit (as I drink my zombie dust clone) and I read that Sorachi ace is very lemony. I was thinking using some lime peel, orange peel, ruby red, lemon peel to accent the citra bomb on this one.

Default Zest Bomb - Citrus Wheat Pale Ale


How long did it take, approximately, to ferment in the primary? How long did you leave this in a secondary?

Default Fermenting times?


This is my second time home brewing so still a newbie

and was wondering how long u guys let this ferment in the primary before re-racking?
also wondering if anybody had different results adding the vodka soaked zest to the secondary as opposed to 5 min boil ?
thanks!
