Brewed yesterday in a oven, pool was a cool 94f ::)




Yeah but in February when it's below zero up here, you get to laugh at us.  Pay your dues :)

experimental recipes (Citra Pale Ale) rather than my stalwarts.  Turns out I think I just don't like those hops. 


So what didn't you like about the citra hops? lingering bite / sharp ?  I like them only for last min additions or dry hop.

I'm anxious to try them in an IPA.  I used them in my Kolsch and liked the results.  Kind of lemony at first but after 2 weeks of lagering that mostly went away.

its just me I think.  I used them 50:50 for a simcoe/citra pale ale, using citra in place of my usual amarillo.

I found the citra to be just wayy too tropical fruity - papaya, mango etc.  and lacking in the piney, floral and dank aromas that I love so much in these styles.  It also seemed a lot less bitter than calculated, even though the usage and IBU count was the same as when I make my recipe with amarillo.

Citra is all the rave right now, so I guess I'm just not with the crowd on this one.

I may give it one last go (i bought a half pound and have used it on two batches so far, have 2 ounces left) before I give up on it.

Yep, gotta start at 6:30 am tomorrow to be done before the sun creeps over to the west side of the house where the driveway is...

Brewing my IPA today--thanks to the forum members for their advice (maybe I followed it, maybe I didn't).

11 hour brewday, 96df and near 100% humidity by the end of the session, but boy was it a good one.

new screen/false bottom worked like a charm and I had crystal clear, 50df pils wort running into the conical at 1PM and cloudy, murky wit wort running in at 5pm, signs o' life by this morning.  life is good!

Did 5 gal Dirty Blonde & 5 gal Berliner Weisse yesterday.  92dF / 110dF heat index.  No beer while brewing, but plenty of ice water.

Brewed five gallons of APA on Friday.  Usually I put it in a keg tub in the basement with some water and a towel wrapped around it to keep it around 64F.  This time I figured it'd be fine since the basement's sitting around 62F.  Oops.  Fermentation ramped up to about 71F within two days and it looks like it's just about done already.  This one may not turn out as well as I hoped.  Lesson learned.
