What a great beer this is. I've never actually had the real deal but brewed this recipe all grain and it was so much better than any IPA I've made before. My friends loved it also which is why I'm getting ready to brew another batch. Found a pound of citra leaf for 24 shipped at label peelers today. Thanks to the OP for starting this thread. It was also the first time I used citra so that opened up another world to me!

So I am coming to the end of the dry hop on my "experiments". I have one gallon exactly to the recipe. I have another gallon which I dry hopped with Mosaic instead of Citra. The last gallon I have not dry hopped. Really interested in seeing how different they will be. Have a feeling I will like the Mosaic the best, but you never know until you get em bottled or kegged and start tasting them.

So I rushed down to Churchkey last week because they had 3FZD and other 3F brews on tap IN DC!! I got there about 30 minutes after the doors opened, and the line was out the bar and around the corner. I waited patiently (not really) and right before I got in, some dude comes out and says its all gone...and it was! A very, very sad beer day for me...Hope this clone makes up for it!! Cheers!

Wow, 30 min? That blows...poor rationing from the bartenders in my opinion.

So, a few things. The smell coming out the airlock is the fruity tropical bombastic I expected from this. Oh citra

Also, anyone else have S-04 finish in 2 days?!? I know its not done, but it went gangbusters for a full day & krausen has already dropped. Never let it get higher than 64f. Similar strains recommend a diacetyl rest, is that needed here? And since it's a high flocc'r, do many dry-hop in primary since yeasties drop out? I was planning on getting it off the cake for maximum dry-hop aroma impact, however, with the high floc, wasnt sure it was an issue here.

Thanks!

I pitched my yeast on Sunday evening and it was going nuts Monday and Tuesday evening when I checked after work. Wasn't home Wednesday to check it, but by last night (Thursday) I didn't have airlock activity at all. So yeah, I'd say my main activity was right around two days. I've been fermenting at 63 by the way. In my (admittedly limited) experience with S-04 this isn't uncommon. I really like this yeast. Anyway, I plan on ramping up my temps slowly over the next few days to around 67 or so and then letting it sit for a week or so. Then I'll throw in some dry hops and keg. Really excited to drink this beer.

Yesterday I transferred to secondary for dry hopping. The smell was really awesome. Headed to Spain today for 9 days and when I get back, its keg time.
