I listened to the podcast again.

The recipe in the OP seems to go with the Recipe/percentages laid out by Kern's head brewer.

At the end of the show, Tasty said his clone had a couple differences:

1.) Tasty used Warrior for bittering instead of Nugget.
2.) Tasty also moved the 30 minute addition to flame out.

I am wondering where he bridged the gap on IBU's as 16-17 is a decent percentage of the bitterness. I guess you could up the 15 minute addition - thoughts?

I have the original recipe in the mash tun now. I was tempted to up the ABV but resisted the urge. Really wanted more bite for the amount of Citra I am using. Anyone tried to do that? Maybe next time I will.

Followed the recipe from the CYBI podcast as well; my OG came out low and my FG high, but otherwise the beer is very tasty. Huge hop aroma and flavor, as you'd expect.

Posted my brewday and tasting notes on my blog if anyone wants to compare their results:

I just poured my last and kicked the keg, exactly 3 months after brew day. Damn tasty. Mine ended up at 7.9%, thanks to a pure O2 kit and healthy starter. I've never had this much aroma in a beer this old, could smell it coming out of the tap. I've bottled two 22ozs for future consumption.

Just finished brewing. Only hit 1.065, a bit disappointing considering my FG is always high. Hopefully mashing around 149 and pitching two re-hydrated packs of S-05 will get me to 1.011 (7%).

I think I am going to go with Warrior next time, there was something just a tiny bit off in mine and I think Warrior will fix it. To match IBUs, 1oz of Warrior for 60 minutes and moving the 30 minute Citra to flameout will come out equal. I'm going to give that a shot next month.

Cool - that's what i was thinking as well.

I brewed this yesterday but with mosaic hops. I might be brewing it again. With Citra around the time you do.

Nice, I was just reading this article about Sam Adams changing the 2013 Latitude IPA to use Mosaic hops. http://beerpulse.com/2012/10/samuel-...-hops-in-2013/

I've not tried them but am interested to hear how yours turns out.

Sampled a bottle early last night (7 days bottled). Very happy with this beer. Mosiac is the closest thing to Citra I've had so far. Strong aroma and it works VERY well this grain bill. It would be fun to do this brew again with Mosaic AND Citra 50/50.

I am brewing Tuesday, and if I didn't already have my grains weighed out for an English IPA; I would be brewing this again. I hate to be cliche, but this has got to be one of the best recipes I've brewed.
