I dry hopped with 4oz Citra pellets on Thursday. That carboy smells splendid now. Gonna cold crash it Thursday, keg it Saturday, get drunk from it on Monday for Monday night football.

Just to update here. The pee-pee smell is gone, and the beer is ... OK.
It is super bitter (of course), but lacks the aroma and flavor that all of my Citra additions, inc dryhop, should have put on.

Meh.

Citra, depending on when they harvest can smell like cat piss. Simcoe as well. I enjoy it myself, oddly enough.

I've heard that of Simcoe. Didn't research Citra enough, I suppose.
Know what, though? It's beer. And I'm happy for that!

Good to know that it will more then likely fade and or go away completely. I think I must have got a batch of cat piss citra too. I just bottled the below a week ago and the smell makes me want to never use citra hops again.. I just don't understand it. I guess I'll crack another bottle open in a month or so and see how it is doing.

Another incident here.
Made some cat piss amber accidentally... It's not horrible, it's just really weird. Smells like cat piss, tastes like, if cat piss would taste nice.
I think i dropped citra @ 40min for the first time, have to check my logs.
I'm now dry hopping with some more citra and also galena.

Will be reporting back when done bottling and carbing.

Did the bottling yesterday night and i'll have to say: wow. Cat piss is still there after dry hopping for a week in secondary with citra and galena, but oh the fruit! This one is going to be delicious. So heads up, accidental cat piss brewers, go ahead and dry hop it!

EDIT: 1oz in 2.5gal

Reason: info addition

lol this topic made my day.

hipsters love citra, i always know when a guy with a curled moustache comes into the home brew shop and hes looking for 10oz of citra for his IIIIIIPA

then they do a review of the beer on their typewriter "hints of a feline's urine is quite forefront"

Yeah, but the difference is that they had heard about it long before you did, i.e. before it was famous/cool. :P

Hipsters. I give them no respect.
