And just an FYI. It literally stopped bubbling the minute after I shook up the carboy. Doesn't make much sense to me

I would advise against shaking fermented beer unless you want oxidation. And let it go at least a week then check gravity.

You proabably shook all the CO2 out of solution by shaking it. Don't do that. Give it a day or two, it should bubble again.

How does oxygen get into a sealed fermenter because someone shook it, if it was that way then infection would be ramped without shaking it. The presser inside the ferm is higher than the outside, so air would not be able to get to the beer. Now with that said, this isn’t something I do on normal bases, but have had to do it to unstick a beer, to get the yeast off the bottom like a stir plate and a starter. Cheers

Correct. While shaking it isn't advised, a gentle swirl is okay to rouse some yeast. I have to do this when I brew a porter with London ESB yeast. It flocs to quick and hard, I rouse it to finish the job and do a D rest.

When fermentation starts, pretty much ALL the O2 is pushed out, as it's lighter than Co2. Swirling it introduces little to no O2 as it's been all pushed out once active fermentation takes place. There could be a little residual in there, but more than likely not enough to matter.

A full on shake isn't advised though, but a little swirling action to get the cake moving is fine.

I didn't literally shakers carboy, though I did swirl it pretty well.

Just pulled another pint from the keg. Tasting great, but a LOT like grapefruit or orange peel that had been soaked in an IPA. Not in a bad way, but its a good way to showcase the Citra hop. I like it, but as said before, i think Ill use the exact same grain bill with a mix of Citra and something else. I really like the grain bill. It turned out very clean and thanks again for a great recipe!

Brewed this up yesterday with all my new gear I got over the holidays. I broke my hydrometer though and was not able to get a SG reading (and the LHBS was already closed).

Agreed, I kegged mine on Saturday, and it is veeeery citrusey (obviously as one would expect with Citra), but I feel the same way as you. Delish but maybe could benefit from another hop thrown in there. I am curious to see how it mellows. I do wonder how long Three Floyds sits on it (if at all).

made last night at 1.062. Mashed at 156 and it finished 70 minutes later at 154. I pitched at 74 and it sits at 63 now. I used wlp002 and did 2 steps. It plugged my keggle so I siphoned. I'm planning to just dump the whole hops in the primary with the rest of the junk and boil a hop bag to siphon through. I hope there's some malty flavor in this cuzz I have too many hopped up brews right now.
