Interesting, I would think 1.016 would leave it with good body, I'm not sure though

Batch #125. 1.068 to 1.016 mashed at 150 with WLP002 and I used MO instead of 2-row.

Dry hopped in primary and again in secondary.

Never had the original but this is the best beer I've ever brewed.

Seriously.

Well, tasted it again, and this time, for some reason, it seemed to have a little more body. Still on the light side, but drank a lot better than the first one. Great beer. The Citra hops a very unique. Very different than the super piney, resiny hops. Its (as its name states) VERY citrusy. Not in a bad way though. I get the grapefruit thing. Lots of it. I think next time Ill try and blend in a little Cascade or Amarillo to give a citrus heavy IPA. Great recipe! Im very happy with it so far

I have found that it gets quite a bit better after about 1.5-2 weeks in the keg. Then it is empty shortly after that.

I brewed this recipe with the same hop schedule but used 80% citra and 20% Amarillo instead 100% citra. I like it much better. However, I am considering doing another hop at 60 minutes to cover the bittering, as I think using citra that early may be a waste.

My first attempt was a mix of galaxy and citra, it was pretty good but not real close to the real thing. My 1lb of citra came in the mail yesterday. That gives me at least two attempts this year!

I actually used Magnum to bitter, since I didn't want to waste my Citra on that. I ma going to give it a couple more days and try again. I will be away from home for a few days so it will be easy haha. If not, Im sure I'd be hittin it up. i bottled about 2.5 gallons and kegged the rest, about 2.5 gallons also. So, we will see if the bottles turn out any different. Im liking it so far! Will probably make again, but mash a little higher. I think this grain bill would work for pretty much any type of hops to make a solid beer.
