Hi All

Well how to become part of a Brewing Forum, I guess by sharing your favourite beer. So here it is :

All Citra Summer Beer

Grain Bill

15.0 g Citra Leaf (11.1% Alpha) @ 90 Minutes (Boil) (0.6 g/L)
15.0 g Citra Leaf (11.1% Alpha) @ 15 Minutes (Boil) (0.6 g/L)
15.0 g Citra Leaf (11.1% Alpha) @ 0 Minutes (Aroma) (0.6 g/L) . I throw this in at Flameout and let it sit for 10 mins before starting to pour into Cubie
15.0g Citra Leaf (11.1% Alpha) Dry hop in barrel for 1 week then remove.

Misc Bill
----------------
4.1 g Irish Moss @ 10 Minutes (Boil)

Single step Infusion at 68°C for 90 Minutes.
Fermented at 18°C with Nottingham

I never used Porridge Oats before but after this I feel like I never want to use anything else. Starting my Mash around 68.4 and using porridge oats I've managed the best head retention on a light ale I've ever had. Pinched the idea for Citra with Porridge Oats from a variation of a 'Seymours Gold' recipe somewhere on tinternet.

Feel free to use the recipe, just let me know how you get on

Cheers & Enjoy

Andy

Is there anything special regarding preperation you need to do to the porridge oats before use?

Nothing special with the oats here, just chuck in in with the rest. A beautiful head down to the bottom of the glass ....
