Made this recipe but changed the hop bill to this:

.75 mt hood at 60
.75 mt hood at 20
.25 citra at 5

It tastes phenomenal. Very smooth and easy to drink with a nice citrus finish. We were thinking about making it again soon but using some ginger lemon grass and maybe blueberry.

Do you think adding oranges or clementines would be good with this recipe?

Potentially. We used clementine peels in another recipe (a wheat beer). They can be overpowering but still tasty. Im not sure how well they would go with the citra hops.

Hello! I made this on the 6th and am confused about my gravity numbers.

I brewed on the 6th with the following:
  • 500g Steeping Munich Malt
    8 lbs (4kg) Pale Malt LME, 4 lbs @ 60 and 4 lbs @ 15
    Centennial Hops 1oz @60, .5 @ 30 and .5 @ 10
    2 Chipotle Peppers @ 10

My starting Gravity was written down as 1.140, which I am thinking was 1.040, written wrong. I took a reading yesterday, at 13 days in and got a reading of 1.013.

Do those look right to you guys? I am either really high or really low ABV.... I was thinking it would be 6.5 or so, my sample last night had some mild carbonation, is this still fermenting then?

Thanks all, only my second non-brewhouse so a little lost!

Using Brewer's friend calculator, your OG would be 1.059 and your FG 1.017, with a medium attenuating yeast. Looks like your OG reading was bogus. Your ABV would be 5.6%. Cheers!

I brewed this one for the first time yesterday.

The only change I made was to add the second 3# of DME at 20 minutes with my hops. I wanted to see if maybe the second addition of DME wasn't getting dissolved and incorporated well enough, and that was causing the high OG numbers that everyone is seeing.

My OG came out at 1.063

The sample I used to take my OG was very sweet and citrusy. I can't wait to try this beer. I think it is going to be a hit, even with the elevated ABV.

Thanks for the recipe!

KH

6.00 lb Extra Light Dry Malt Extract

Hops
======================================
0.75 oz Willamette at 60
0.75 oz Willamette at 20
0.50 oz Willamette at 1

Other
======================================
1 unit, Whirfloc at 20

Notes
======================================
Place 3 gallons of cool water in brewpot and bring to 150 F. Put steeping grains in bag and steep for 1 hour.

Lift bag out, let drain and discard.

Bring water to boil, remove from heat and stir in 3 lbs of DME. Return to heat.
Bring to boil and watch for messy boil over. Once risk has subsided, add 60 min hops and start timer.

At 20 minutes, add whirfloc (or irish moss) and 20 minute hops.

At 5 minutes, add remaining DME (using same procedure as above).

At 1 minute, add last 0.50 oz of hops.

Add 1 gallon of cool water to primary.

Chill, transfer to primary, add cool water to bring to 5.5 gallons, pitch re-hydrated yeast.
This sounds great. I'm probably going to brew this for a summer ale, maybe with different hops. Thanks for sharing.

I'd like to report that I made this recipe exactly as originally posted and it's terrific. Malty sweetness up front with a nice refreshing bitter finish. Outstanding "gateway" beer for those who drink MBC. My buddy who thinks New Glarus Spotted Cow is the best beer he's ever had and has yet to say anything good about my homebrew porters, wheats, brown ales even likes it. Great job with the recipe and I would brew it again!
