See what strain of yeast they use....

My gut would say 1968 possibly, the fullers yeast... It's popular amongst commercial brewers.

I want to try Oddsides Pineapple IPA though, MAN that sounds good.

I'd be interested in that Pineapple IPA as well. I'm drinking (not at the moment, but you know...) a pineapple wheat I brewed based on the idea of Mana wheat from Maui brewing. On the IPA side though, I wonder how it will taste. I recall Jamil Zainashef saying the worst fruit beer he ever made was a pineapple IPA - the flavors (bitter and pineapple) just didn't mesh.

Holy Citra!

I followed the recipe- OG 1.055, FG 1.005 with pacman yeast. I dont think I have ever had anything like this before- the tropical mango thing is totally over the top! Great recipe- I was concerned about only using late additions, but it is perfectly balanced. I could smell this stuff all day... Glad I bought the whole pound of citra! I am a big fan. Thanks for sharing

No problem.. Nice FG there. Overshot it a bit, but I bet the dryness is good!

Glad you enjoyed it, it's a nice balanced beer for.. well.. anytime!

Brewed this one up yesterday, hit my intended OG which was satisfying because I've had all sorts of problems coming in too low lately.

Thanks for the recipe, love citra, cant wait to try this one!

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!

The recipe you quoted is the the recipe to brew.

The only changes would be if you want to try Oddsides hop schedule, which is in the bold portion. You'll have to do it in BS to balance the IBU's if you want to give it a shot.

I think for homebrew purposes, the hop schedule I provided is probably best, IMO.

No problem!

I need to brew this again soon and use up some of last years Citra I have in the freezer before I order the new harvest stuff.

Indeed one of my favorite recipes. I like it more than the Zombie Dust Clone on here myself, that one turned out a bit much for me!

I brewed this over the weekend and because of my low effeciency in some previous beers i did a 90 mash and a 15 minute sparge i ended up with a 1.066 gravity. Hopefully i have some happy yeast and get a bigger beer then i hoped for.
