Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: us-05, 1056   
Yeast Starter: no   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: yeast starter recommended for liquid yeast   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25   
Original Gravity: 1.061   
Final Gravity: 1.011   
IBU: ~52   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 6.7L   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): two weeks or so at 65F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): about a week at 68F   
Tasting Notes: big passionfruit aroma and flavor with slight malt sweetness   

This is the second competition I entered and my second bronze medal. This beer took third place in category 10A American Pale Ale at the Best of the Bay homebrew competition in Bellingham, Wa. If you love citra, you will definitely love this beer. I think the addition of honey malt complements the tropical fruit flavors of citra very nicely.

Grain: 11# american two-row (great western)
8oz crystal 40L
8oz honey malt

Mashed grains for 60min at 149-150F

sparge at 175F and boil for 60 min. Hop additions are as follows:

.5oz citra - FWH
.5oz citra - 20min
1oz citra - 10min
1oz citra - 5min
1oz citra - 1min
2oz citra - flameout

I add a whirlfloc tablet at 15minutes to help clarify the wort.
I also add a teaspoon of yeast nutrient at the same time.

I cool the wort to about 150F before adding the flameout hop addition to preserve those delicious and volatile hop oils. I believe myrcene's boil point is like 147 or something!

gently stir those bad boys for a few minutes so they can release their hoppy awesomeness.

Cooled to about 60-64, aerated with o2 pushed through a stainless aeration stone and pitched yeast!

after about two weeks I racked into secondary and dry-hopped with an ounce of citra leaf hops for a week....you could always use more if you desire

After a week, cold crash and keg!

Enjoy

Sure, I'll try it. Butler dust because it is similar to the Zombiedust clone?

kinda... a friend of mine came up with the name after we first tasted actual zombiedust and I said I was going to make something similar.

Nice job thanks for sharing.
My pale ale did not fare so well in that category, must have been very competitive.

I guess it was.... one of the judges said she smelled celery and onion in the aroma and that I should "amp up the hops for a punchier effect"

7oz in a 5 gal batch of regular old 10A pale ale seems pretty "punchy" to me...lol...whatever, she was an honory judge and not even certified anyway haha

I am not sure about some of those judges... My ipa was docked with a pretty bad score and not useful feedback and went on to place very well. I think it may be hard to get enough bjcp certified judges up there for this comp.
