Has anyone dry hopped or boil hopped a Stout with Citra? Wondered how it turned out? Sounds totally wrong but i'm curious, lol

hoppy stouts are pretty popular now, i like them but wouldn't want a full batch, maybe just a gallon from a pale with added black stuff.

Whilst it wasn't Citra I'm sure GrowlingDogBeer dumped a stout on top of a yeast cake and hops (from dry hopping) of a previous brew. IIRC he thought it was rather good.

Here you go http://www.forum.craftbrewing.org.uk/viewtopic.php?p=62071#p62071 I might be imagining the second sentence above though :hmm:

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

I think it will turn out well, My stout I dumped on the yeast cake and hops from the punkie IPA clone is a splendid beer, a good full stout but with some extra bite and aroma.

Go for it.

I have done a 10 litre batch of Citra Stout today. I just wondered had anyone else tried it. As nobody else i spoke to at my local had heard of it before and they are "widely drank" (as in Widely Read) if you get my drift. Certainly be interesting to see how the citra hops and roasted barley taste combined. Cant wait to try it

Cheers GrowlingDogBeer. Bet that was an amazing taste.

I made a Yeti clone last year - Recipe - and it wasn't my favourite beer. For me there is too much going on with the complexity of dark malts already without the additional hop complexity.
If you fancy it though then go for it. It may turn out amazingly well.

Be interested in how this turns out. Not a hop I would have matched with a stout but I have some of them and have not used them yet :?:

Why is the mash out stage dropped in this recipe?

I have noticed a few of these no mash-out recipes on the Beersmith site.

I have no idea but I only ever use the recipe and follow my own BIAB method.

Would this be a black IPA?

No. Black IPA has different ingredients to a stout. See here for a "Black IPA" or American Dark Ale

Bottled the Citra Stout today and had a quick taste and it was wonderful. The two flavours sat very well together without either dominating which i thought could easily happen but it pretty much tasted what you think it would be like. Ive only dry hopped 10 litres of Coopers Irish Stout with Citra as an experiment but the result was definately worth giving it a go. Especially as i have 13 litres to compare it against of the regular kit.

Nice idea, I like hoppy stouts. They are definitely a different beast to Cascadian dark ale. T

I would have expected citrusy hops and roasted flavours to clash so it's interesting that you think it works. Perhaps I will give it a go as I'm really liking my hoppy brews at the moment.
