AG#50 – Citrallenger

Posted on: March 5, 2011

Citrallenger – The second of today’s brews and my 50th All Grain brew anniversary, this called for something a bit special. I’m thinking that spicy/ peppery Challenger are going to Blend well with the Herbal pungency of the Citra, backed up by a very solid bitterness from the Centennial Hops.

Annoyingly the Pellet hops clogged up my ‘Works like magic every-time’ regular hop-stopper, so pretty slow run-off to fermenter… Just a couple of OG points low.

Easy brewday bar the slow run-off, doing a bit different hop schedule on this one, with the 2 centennial bittering additions and just one fairly large Aroma steep at 80c.

*Bottled 23rd Mar ’11
