I Just scored a lb of pellet citra at a lesser known LHBS which was the only thing holding me back from trying this. My citra are 14.1% so I'm also going to follow a lighter hop schedule like that listed above.

Has anyone found that using one package of dry yeast is not sufficient for the expected 1.065 OG? Planning to brew really soon.

In Milwaukee area? Northern Brewer has been out of US-04 the last few times I've been there, and it's annoying, and Purple Foot is closed on Sunday....

Okay, I've got a question on this... I mashed a bit warm (~158) simply because I overshot my mash-in temp. I figured I'd end up with a bit chewier beer due to more unfermentables (which I tend to prefer). 10 days of primary, 7 days dry-hop, 10 days naturally carbonate with corn sugar (don't ask why, just figured I'd try something different). It ended up thin actually, very little mouth feel and unable to hold much head at all (but the flavor is superb).

Other than perhaps my lab-grade alcohol thermometer somehow losing calibration and actually mashing colder I'm confused. Thoughts? (and no, I completely forgot to take an OG or FG so I have no idea)
I know I could just add some melanoidin or carapils in the future to counteract this but I don't want to put a band-aid on if I've developed a systematic problem.

Do you have any left? Pour a bottle in your hydro tube, and take a reading. I mashed mine low (150) and it's a little thin. I actually liked the taste after 1 week in bottle more than 2 weeks

I have been toying with the idea of brewing small experimental batches to try new recipes, so yesterday I actually pulled the trigger and this beer was on the top of my list to try!! So for my first ever experimental small batch, I made 2.5 gallons indoors on the stove vice on my 10G setup in the garage. Everything went suprisingly well given that I have not brewed on the stove in a long time. Hit OG on the nose and FG was .002 over. Pitched last night and had bubbles within an hour or two (probably over pitched...) and nice krausen this morning. I started the ferment at 69F but have since given the carboy a water bath to lower it to around 65F or so...will see where it ends up later today. Very excited about this beer's potential! Delicious aroma from both the malt and hops. Looks like I am going to be at about 6.3% ABV and 60 IBU so I am thinking that it won't be long until this ends up on my single tier! Thanks skeezerpleezer for the recipe and all the posts!!
