The color is awesome and it has a strong zesty aroma, with a slight spice to it in the pallet. I think this is a great grain bill and hops will be easy to play around with. Good luck

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.

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

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!
