I have been brewing the below recipe and am in love with it.. moving it to 10 gallon batches.. afraid to go off Citra to something else, but cant find Citra.
any suggestions for a sub?? I am using pellet in the boil and leaf in the dry hop..

Try for citra by the ounce. Seems all the pounders are gone.

Farmhouse Brewing Supply offers Citra and many other hard to find hop varieties in 1/4 LB packages.

Maybe someone with more experience then me can chime in, but I've had good luck using galaxy as a sub. However it was only one recipe I've tried it out in.

Yeah but galaxy is a little hard to find at the moment too. A few places stock this new mosaic hop which some say can sub for citra. I have a pound but have not used any yet so I can't say for sure.

I brewed a FW Wookie Jack clone as well using magnum to bitter, and Cascade and Summit for aroma/flavor. Not an exact duplicate, but gawd dam was it tasty! Try using that instead.

Hops direct sold 500lbs in 10 minutes with a 1lb per max per customer. There's some crazy demand on citra! Good luck finding it at a decent price.
