I wonder how different this would taste using WLP001 vs. Wyeast1968 or even WLP002? I want to make this but because it will be difficult to get the temperature in my house to stay between 64-68 for the 002 I was thinking of using WLP001. I'm sure it won't be a dead on clone but I would think it would still taste like a pretty damn good APA. Thoughts? Concerns? Discuss amongst yourselves.

Mine is still a little green but the 04 was eerily close to the real zombie dust. I'd just stick with that imho.

I have used S-05 (same as WLP001, but cheaper and higher cell count per package), S-04 (Dry English Yeast), and 1968.

S-05 ends a little lower FG, which allows the bitterness to come through and taste is a little drier.

S-04 ends a couple points higher FG, so is a bit sweeter than the S-05, more fruity esters also.

1969 finished a bit higher than the S-04. It was also fruity. I will mash a bit lower the next time I use this.

All three ended up being fantastic beers. So, if you want it to be more like the real Zombie Dust then use one of the English yeasts. If you like beers a bit dryer and more bitter, the S-05 (Cali ale yeast).

I brewed this today with some mods for my setup and higher alpha Citra. Used Zythos at FWH to save on Citra, couldnt get Melanoid malt either. I started paying attention to the BU-GU, do you know what you guys ratio is? My revised recipe.

After making this with the original recipe, I'd never ever deviate from it. I can't imagine it could get any better.

My Citra AA were higher than Skeezers and I do 5 gallons compared to his 6 so I had to alter it somewhat. Skeezer, any thoughts about getting the color closer to the original? I could care less really, I'll never get to taste it.

since you are doing 5g instead of 6, you could reduce the C60 and aromatic from 8oz to 6.66 oz, that may lighten it up. The recipe I have posted is almost perfect on color.

Are you in Lebanon the country?

Back to the yeast question. After making about 12 gallons of this with two packets of 04 pitched directly on it I am thinking that the yeast may have a little to do with the flavor differentiation so maye trying a liquid would help but that being saidTho citra hops, or all hops for that matter can taste quite different from crop to crop and supplier to supplier. Freshness, storage conditions are all huge factors in my opinion you see these hoppy beers changing so fast over time. This is a fantastic recipe, has been fun drinking and sharing this one with people, I definitely don't regret going for the double batch on my first try, skeezers recipes are great.
