My beers normally dont last this long so I rarely think about shelf life, but I am on a bit of a diet....

Red, if ya aint made it yet you might wanna try that tweak, if you did make it it will still be amazing
Ha! Well I ordered an extra ounce and they came in at 15.6% so I think I have plenty.

Hopville actually yelled at me for having too much. That and I wanted to try a full boil. So I think I'll go with:

.25, .5, .75, 1, and dry hop 1.5

That should keep it American enough for me.

Any reviews or tastes yet for those who have tried this?

I had one last night, still great, with awesome grapefruit and citris(and maybe even a bit of mellonish) notes, even if my aroma has deminished a bit.

I love this hop, trying to come up with a IPA recipe with this, Amarillo and Cascade

I've been slacking big time. All sorts of family obligations getting in the way. Brewing this weekend or bust!

Did anyone give this a try? Had a few people about to bite and it seems they swam away.

Still my favorite pale ale to date....depending on how this Amarillo, Citra, Sorachi ace pale ale turn out anyway. If I get good reviews on it this weekend I'll post that one too.

I'm close. Had to completely revamp my setup. My boil kettle was destroyed by some spilt bleach. So a keggle, blichmann burner, plate chiller later I'm just about back in the game.

I know excuses excuses...

I have 2 carboys bubbling away this morning. I had a few friends stop by yesterday so I ran a 10gal batch with my new setup (finally).

Recipe:

12lb golden LME
5lb German pilsner
1lb crystal 20

60min at 154 (actually bounced between 156-153)
10min at 170

60min .5oz citra (15.6% AA)
30min .5oz citra (15.6% AA)
15min .5oz citra (15.6% AA)
10min .5oz citra (15.6% AA)
5min 1oz citra (15.6% AA)
0min 1oz citra (15.6% AA)
15min steep

I split the batch between 'merican 1056 and British 1098

I'll probably divide my last oz between the two carboys if I can't find another oz by that time.

OG was 1.065
Ran oxygen for 4min @ 1/4LPM in each carboy

Super excited, it's been too long.
