Better late than never

A little while ago I promised to post the recipe for the citra IPA I made. Then stuff happened and I didn’t get to it. So here it is:

Steeping grains
1 lb Honey Malt
1.5 Special Roast

Fermentables
7 lb LME

Hops
1 oz Centennial @ 60
.5 oz Citra @ 60
1 oz Citra @ 30
.5 oz N Brewer @ 15

.5 tsp Irish Moss @ 5

Yeast
Final use of Laurelwood ale yeast

Original Gravity:
1.069

Other gravities: unknown because I broke my hydrometer and didn’t get it replaced in time. Ah well.

Went into secondary after 10 days with  .5 oz Citra hops (maybe even .75) added to 2ndary for dry hopping, bottled six days later.

And yes, this beer is one of the best I’ve done this year.
