I kegged this one a couple weeks ago and it is one of my best beers to date. My best friend said it his favorite of mine yet!

I subbed a oz of Cascade for Amarillo as I didn't have any at the time.

Great recipe! Going to brew this again for spring!

What do you guys think about brewing this with some Conan yeast?

I brewed 10 gallons of cent blonde using Conan and when I tasted the FG sample I was def getting the heady flavor but I'm not sure if it would enhance or take away the hop flavor in this recipe.

If I'm using a conical do I need to secondary or can I just dump the yeast and dry hop?

pretty sure they said dump the yeast at the brewery on the show then dry hop at up to 10 psi

I brewed this beer and its been carbed and sitting for two weeks on tap. I scaled up to 6 gallons and tweked for my system. All I can say is wow.

This tastes like tropical fruit juice. I like how the bittering, flavor and aroma are well rounded. Never had the original but can say I will brew again. Maybe trying with a peach ester yeast? Conan would be a good test candidate. Now If I could find some...

I'm brewing it now. Strike water is 2 degrees from go time. I am going ten gallons and used 1.25 pounds of 40l vs the 10l, so it won't be exact. I also subbed Columbus for Nugget but I doubt that will make much difference. It's my first beer using Citra.

Undershot my O.G. Ended up at 1.064. If it was a borderline DIPA to begin with it is definitely a straight up IPA now.

If you like fruity IPAs you're going to love citra.

Just about to transfer out of primary and I think I will dry hop in the keg so that I can sleep at night dry hopping without an airlock or any kind of pressure release. Anybody know whether or not each dry hop addition is supposed to be removed before adding the next addition?

Also, I need a little clarification on the dry hop schedule. In the podcast, Kyle says that he counts the day that each addition is added as a day. For example, If I add my first dry hop addition on Monday I'm adding my second addition on Wednesday (Mon, Tues, Wed = 3 days). So do I count Wednesday as the last day of my first addition and also as the first day of my second addition? Is it 12 calendar days or 12 counted days? After listening to the podcast I was under the impression that it should look like this:

1st addition - Mon, Tues, Wed
2nd addition - Wed, Thurs, Fri
3rd addition - Fri, Sat, Sun
4th addition - Sun, Mon, Tues

That's 12 counted days, but really only 8 consecutive days of dry hopping. Did anybody else get this from what Kyle says in the podcast? Thanks for your input, guys.
