002 is the White Labs sub for Wyeast 1968 (according to RebelBrewer) - I personally like the smack packs of Wyeast lately, they've been very good to me, reducing the number of starters I have to make.

So I plan on brewing this up Friday - I just put it in beer smith and the ibus only came out to the low 40s. I'm really new to this program so maybe I put something in wrong but pretty sure I put in a total of 8 oz citra. Any reason why this would occur?

Make sure ALL your hopp additions are Citra, and make sure that you have the correct AA % in your program. If its low, it will make lower IBU's. It varys from crop to crop, and check you packaging the hops came in. The AA% should be on there.

I corrected the citra AA to 12.4 instead of 12.00 and it boosted my ibus to 55. As far as the mini mash/ steeping grain, I plan on doing them in the low 150s for 45-60 min. Sparge with some water at the same temp?

I was going to add 1 packet s04 and 1 packet us05 like in the instructions. I'm not sure if that was a typo or something. Anyway, I think I'll just make a starter with the wlp002 since it was so healthy on the last batch I used it on. If there is a better suggestion, let me know.

I will remove the S05. I did a split batch, not both in the same fermenter.

I just bottled my partial mash version and its awesome, even flat. I went from 1.072 to 1.018 with s-04. I did add maybe 4oz of corn sugar late in the boil to help dry it out. I kept temps below 63 for two weeks, brought it up to around 68 for a 10 day dry hop, and then dropped temps to around 45 for three days before getting it into bottles. Can't wait!

1.018 is pretty far from dry... Thats kind of high. I know thats what the recipe states though, but I would figure this beer would finish much atleast closer to 1.011 or 1.010.

I estimated my yeast to be only 72% attn. level, which is the high end for the strain. I used this number because I mashed low, making a more fermentable wort, hoping to get the FG as low as possible. My calculation is 1.018 as the original posters.

I could measure the FG on my finished beer, but it's carbonated already. The beer finished to where I expected it, so I did not measure it. Why waste the beer?

But...if you request in the name of science...
