Mash for 60min @ 155 F
Going to dry hop with 3 oz Citra for 5-7 days.

I've got a bunch of Nelson hops in the freezer and am thinking of a pale ale soon. Not today but soon.

Gonna be in the mid 90s here for the next week or so.  I'm grinding grain today for both a Rye IPA and a Rye pils.  Planning on getting started on one or the other around 5 AM on Sun.

Yeah, it's pretty hot here today in socal. I should've started earlier. I'm cooling the wort now. Glad I sprung for a chest freezer and temp controller last year. It would be a pain for fermenting with out it.

You found organic Nelson's? I thought you were organic only.  I am not a fan of Nelson's...blech. It must be like some people with Simcoe...just doesn't taste right. I, personally, love simcoe.

Seven bridges has organic Nelson. Not cheap, but it's available.
