- 4.9 / 5.065 ReviewsShit is the shit!One of my faves. I add the first hops to the first wort. Ferment for two months. Dry-hop a full month before I tap. Smooths out the bittter a little and tastes a little more balanced in my opinion...awesome recipe.February 9, 2018Fantastic!If you like Citra, you will love this beer. This is the best IPA recipe that I have tried--better than Dead Ringer, Kiwi Express, Chinook, Off the Topper, or Plinian. I'll be sad when the keg is kicked. I will definitely be making this beer again.January 31, 2018Purchased
10 months agoGo to BeerI have been brewing for a few years now, and constantly find myself returning to make this beer. I enjoy brewing it both the extract, and all grain. Highly recommend for a consistent IPAJanuary 2, 2018Purchased
1 year agoOutstanding beer. Second time I have brewed a 10 pound batch (2 kits) and each time have received feedback as the best beer I have brewed. Highly recommedned.December 25, 2017Purchased
2 months agoExcellentFantastic flavor but a little cloudy for a lighter color beer, in my opinion. Usually I can get pretty clear brews - maybe I just missed something on this one or it is a little cloudy. It doesn't bother me, but a few of my friends who like to try my brews were a little gunshy because of the cloudiness.October 3, 2017Purchased

6 months agoGreat Kit!I brewed this all grain kit because I love Citra hops. This kit did not disappoint! Great hop and malt profile. I will be using this as a base recipe to build off of.September 11, 2017Purchased
10 months agoVery surprised by this brew!I ordered this recipe because I was looking for a summer-like IPA and noticed it was a session. This was my third all-grain brew and I was surprised how well this turned out. It is light in body, but flavorful and crisp. Really worthwhile.September 5, 2017Purchased
8 months agoKama Citra all-grainMy first all grain batch. Easy to make, fairly quick turn-around. After a week and a half in the bottle, great flavor and aroma. Very nice citrus profile. Definitely one to do again.August 30, 2017Purchased
1 year agoreally good , but needs tweaksI added another ounce of citra for dry hop and another ounce of cascade.. wouldn't be enough without 4 full ounces. Also, all the pictures I have seen of this beer on untappd appear just like mine, a little cloudy/hazy. almost all of my beers turn out clearer than this using the same process. Also, NB sent me junk hops. a bunch of dry powder so I had to use my own. NB made it right and sent me a gift card. maybe copy the grain bill, buy better malt, and buy hops from yakimahops.comAugust 25, 2017Purchased

- Browse 7 questions Browse 7 questions and 25 answersThese say that they are kits. Do they not come with yeast?BEST ANSWER: The yeast is not included in the kit price. Yeast prices vary, depending on your personal preferences with respect to type (dry or liquid), and style. I have brewed this kit using the recommended American Ale yeast with excellent results and would also recommend White Labs WLP090, San Diego Super Strain, as my all around favorite when I just want a super clean tasting IPA without any specific flavor "coloring" enhancements contributed by the yeast.Is this a 60 or 90 minute boil? Is just shows hop additions and times. I'm assuming just a 60 minute.BEST ANSWER: It's a 60 minute boil. Add 0.5 oz centennial at start of boil then add first cascade with 20 minutes left of boil then second cascade with 10 minutes left of boil. Then when 60 minutes is done shut off heat and add 2 oz citraKama Citra IPA. What is the optimum temperature to ferment having used the dry yeast that came with the kit?BEST ANSWER: I've had great results staying within a couple degrees of 64 degrees.Any guidance on how to make a yeast starter for this?BEST ANSWER: At such a low gravity and ABV, this one doesn't really need a starter. If using dry yeast, feel free to just toss in two, to ensure quick and easy fermentation.Can you recommend a white labs yeast? My local store has limited selections.BEST ANSWER: I recommend WLP001, this strain is widely used for Pale Ales and IPA's. It will let the hop flavor shine through!What additional Equipment i need to brew this kit ?BEST ANSWER: All-Grain beer kits can require a Mash Tun, and a large kettle and burner to brew them up properly, and a few other items. Or, you can do an all-grain kit "Brew-In-A-Bag" ; this requires less gear. To do "BIAB" you need a very large mesh bag, and a large kettle (8-10 gallons ) and a burner sufficient to get that amount of water boiling. - Mike W, Northern BrewerHi, I'm new to all-grain brewing (coming from extract brewing) and would like give this recipe a try. The question I have is that I have noticed there is no water amount (gallons) listed in the directions, as we have in the extract kits; how much water do we use in each step of the process?
Cheers.BEST ANSWER: The answer to this question depends entirely on the method with which you mash your grains to make the wort. A general range of water to grain ratio for the mash is 1.5 to 2 quarts of water per pound of grain. However, it varies based on method and personal preference. When the mash is finished, normally the grains are rinsed, or "sparged" with hotter water to rinse out the sugar still trapped in the grains. The volume of water you use is entirely dependent on your method of sparging, which can take several different forms. The goal, however, is that by the end you have collected enough volume of wort so that you end up with your desired volume after the boil. This depends on how much water you boil off in your kettle during your boil, which depends on air temperature, your kettle dimensions, etc. I would do some research and decide which method you'll be using to do your all grain brew and then you'll be able to determine the water volumes that are necessary.
