    How do YOU decide what to make next?

    Great question! Sometimes I'll get inspiration from a beer that I've drank and want to recreate something similar. Sometimes I'll come across a recipe that sounds really good. Sometimes I'll want to do a particular style. Sometimes I will try to brew something that is different than what I have...

    Wasted $??

    The best way to tell is simply to smell and visually inspect them. If they have good aroma and are green then they are likely okay. As previously mentioned, they are likely not good for bittering. Get a high alpha bittering hop and use them for late additions or dry hops.

You grind the beans as coarsely as possible and add around 3 cups of water. Keep in the fridge for roughly 12-18 hours...

    Your experience with Citra

    I have always enjoyed citra and have had a lot of variation from different beers branded as citra. I brewed an all citra clone of 3 Floyd's Zombie Dust. The beer was fantastic. The citra was mainly a strong tangerine flavor and aroma.
