    Single infusion mash at 150° F (66° C) targeting a mash pH between 5.2 – 5.4. Sparge as you normally would and collect your runnings. Boil for 90 minutes. Chill wort below 170° F (77° C) or below (if possible) before adding whirlpool hops for 15 minutes. Cool wort to 66° F (19° C) and pitch yeast. Dry hop with 2 oz of Citra hops 48 hours after the start of primary fermentation, being careful to prevent as much oxygen pickup as possible. Once final gravity is reached, add the remaining 5 oz of Citra dry hops for 5 days. Crash and carbonate to 2.5 volumes of CO2.
