Taste Notes

Good beer. Great hop aroma. Citrusy taste. Not bitter enough. Perhaps use something more harsh for bittering. Citra for bittering is catty. Use for flavor and aroma only.

Notes

This is a wheat based PA. Protein rest for 30 minutes at 121.5 deg. Dry hop with 1.0 oz. of Citra. Starter: Added 400 ml. water to 2.0 oz. of light DME. OK, so the OG came out really low. Is it because the wheat enzymes where not enough to mash the wheat? Was the crush bad? I added .5 pds. of LDME to the carboy after it was filled. Boiled 8 oz. of DME in 2 cups of water. We'll see if it works. Stated about 12 hours and going crazy after 1 day. Like nothing I've seen but not a real big krausen--perhaps and inch high. Great at transfer!
