Recipe Type: All Grain Yeast: Us-05 Yeast Starter: No Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25 Original Gravity: 1.052 Final Gravity: 1.008 IBU: 43.5 Boiling Time (Minutes): 60 Color: 5.2 Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 @68f Additional Fermentation: None Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): Dry hop for 7 days Tasting Notes: In your face Citra aroma and flavor without the extreme bitterness.
Just cracked my first bottle of this one and figured it was worthy of a recipe post. This one turned out to be summer pale I was looking for. It's an easy drinking summer brew with loads of hop aroma and flavor, yet the bitterness remains balanced (love the hop bursting). Sure is a nice way to spend six ounces of Citra.
Mash at 152 with 4 gallons strike. Single batch sparge with 5.5 gallons of 185 water. I can only speak for my system which has a very high boil off rate(2 gallons per hour). You'll need to adjust your sparge and mash water for your system.
