As stated above: I bump those to a full OZ and also include 1oz at 5min in order to get 41IBU

Its a little hard to understand as FatC1tys update to his recipe mentions moving the 5-10min additions up but I do not see where he says to make them an oz or to keep one at 5 min.... even so it looks like I was on the same page as he has probably done.

I'm out of town but thanks for bringin it to my attention. I will clean the recipe up.

The recipe as its written is right.

If you wish to use the exact hop schedule they use its the one with the 60 min addition. I haven't done it that way with their schedule because I don't think we get the same usage from our hops as the bigger breweries do. It comes out to roughly 3 ounces in a 5 g batch which is pretty low I think. Depends on alphas of your own hops as well.

Ill update it and lay out the two schedules with amounts and ibus for people later this week. But be advised the current schedule is fantastically close and taste really good.

Thanks. It really is good how it is. I just read it wrong. I did brew this. The brew meanta great deal to me as my process went great, my pH and electric heater have been an issue. I nailed my pH and my new element seemed to do well. The funny thing is I have had Citra beer once on tap and I did not like it. I personally think the keg had been there a while and it tasted off to me. I have citra hops on hand have made a very similar recipe to this before so I know it will be great as long as my process worked out.

Just brewed this up again.. Oh so good and refreshing.. I think it really highlights the Citra hop better than some others I've made.. Citra can get a bit... overpowering and funky in large amounts.

So just tasted this after a few weeks in the bottle. Like I said, it was a great brew as my pHwas good and hopes were high with new heater. Beer came out great. No off flavors or anything strange. I did a 20min hop stand at 170F. I have so much citra flavor, I think it is great but think it might even be better when it fades just a bit. I mashed at 150 for 90 minutes and the beer is nice and dry. Great summer quencher.

Now that they bottle i was able to sit down and do a comparison..

Its not 100% ready yet (not 100% clear or carbed)... Obviously the homebrew is on the right.. But i made this for the wife.. Yes its a great beer but her favorite.. She thought mine was oddsides.. Obviously if she looked at clarity and color she would have noticed..

The clone is perfect hop wise!

I think i need to grab another bottle to compare cause the one i had was from their first bottling and its been rumored that they were losing their freshness.. Which would explain why the real one seems more bitter and less flavor and aroma

Awesome.. Thanks for the pics and comparison..

I need to get this back on tap, pronto and use up some Citra in the freezer.

Get a freshie and report back.. The age could make their beer a bit darker as well... that or, they have something like munich in there getting some color without the crystal. Not much because the color is really close.
