Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: US-05   
Yeast Starter: Yes   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.058   
Final Gravity: 1.012   
IBU: 41   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 7   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 @ 67   
Tasting Notes: Taste very close to Oddsides Citra Pale Ale, perfectly balanced!   

Here's a really close clone of the Citra Pale Ale from Oddsides, in Grand Haven, Michigan. Very close to what I remember it tasting like.

It's a fantastically, easy drinking, ultra flavorful Pale Ale. These guys make one of the best Pale's I've ever had, and the Brewer, and the Brewery are TOP NOTCH. The Headbrewer gave me some "direction" in designing/guessing the recipe, and it helped me greatly. I believe this one is very close to the original, and if anything makes a fantastic, easy drinking beer that is good to the last drop!

Mash @ 152* for 60 minutes.

11 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 88.0 %
12.0 oz Wheat, Flaked (1.6 SRM) Grain 2 6.0 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 3 4.0 %
4.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 4 2.0 %
1.00 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 6 21.3 IBUs
0.28 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10.0 mins) Fining 7 -
1.00 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Boil 10.0 min Hop 8 15.6 IBUs
0.50 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 9 4.3 IBUs
0.50 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Boil 1.0 min Hop 10 0.9 IBUs
1.50 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Flameout 0.0 min Hop 11 0.0 IBUs
2.0 pkg Safale American (DCL/Fermentis #US-05) [50.28 ml] Yeast 12 -
1.10 tsp Yeast Nutrient (Boil 10 min) Other 13 -
2.00 oz Citra [12.00 %] - Dry Hop 0.0 Days Hop 14 0.0 IBUs

NOTE: The recipe has been altered since version 1. The FWH/60 min addition is deleted for the raised 15/10min addition for more flavor, and the same amount of IBU's this beer should be.

Another NOTE: I was informed by someone who has talked to Oddsides about this recipe, and said it's really close. Drop the C60 totally, and use all C40 instead. 60/10/0/dryhop is the hop schedule, it's scaled down to our 5 gallon batches, it's just shy of 3 oz total for ALL of those additions. I would assume that we would need more on our smaller scales to get the amplified flavor as we don't get the efficiency they do in a larger brew house. However, feel free to try that, and work out the hops to 41 IBU's roughly. As is stands the recipe written is very close, and extremely flavorful, but one could try to use whats been quoted as from Chris himself, and see how it works at home.


Ferment it out cool, around 66-67*F.

It's a great tasting, balanced, and fruity Pale Ale. If you hate Citra, you are in the wrong place. The wheat is what gives this beer the slightly creamier, heavier mouthfeel that makes you love it. The lacing and head on the beer are perfect. So refreshing!

Well, I added them about after flameout, and once I turned on the chiller. I then chilled for maybe... 15-20 minutes while I clean up, and it got down to around 65-70*. I then whirlpool the kettle, but pull the hop spider when I do that unless I free float the hops if they are leaf, and leave it be for about 10.. Then I transfer.

So maybe 20 minutes or so if pellets, the full 30 if it's leaf..

Educate me. Why would you add two different crystal malts?

8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 3 4.0 %
4.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 4 2.0 %

This looks delicious

Looks good. What is the OG and so I'm clear, that is 2 ounces at flame out?

Bingo.

Needed a little more color, so added the darker crystal. It also adds a slightly different sweetness to the beer, more complexity with different crystals in there. I thought it worked well.

OG target is 1.058. You want to mash somewhat higher than you would think, as you don't want to dry the beer out too bad. Shoot for 5.8-6.0% ABV, as the original is.
