Re: Extremely fast fermentation.

I've had similar recently when I found I'd pitched much higher than normal - around the 23C mark like you rather than my usual 18C. Doesn't seemed to have harmed although I let it sit for a few days before dry hopping.

I opened up the hop packet tonight and I'm not sure what hops they were but to my untrained nose they smelt a bit like Citra, which if they are is fine by me!
Cheers!
Think I've seen somewhere they're Apollo

Re: Leaf hops

Understood. Your 'handle' rings a bell - did you answer one of my recent posts about laterals on home grown hops??

Anyway, what are we talking about for an inital 500g delivered? Would be happy to take more but recent experience is holding me back a bit.

Re: Leaf hops

Could well be interested in some Citra. You say you've only just opened them yet they're 2016 - can you just clarify how long you've had them , where are they from and how have they been stored please. Not being funny but I recently bought some 2017 chinook off the forum and they've turned out to be...

Sunshine Marmalade Peel Addition

Intending trying Rob's recipe soon buying in the peel from TMM. I no chill and then boil 1 gallon of wort the following day for 10 minutes with my late hop addition - I'm able to rapid cool that amount in a large sink using waterand ice cubes - seems to work fine although I suppose I could calculate...

Re: Mandarin Dream

That looks very similar to what I used. Oil of orange being the main ingredient. Be interesting to see what effect it has on the head of your beer. Unless of course you don't like a head on your beer in which case you should be fine.[emoji2][emoji481] Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk Interesti...

Re: Citra comparable available in the UK

There are some UK based hops that are starting to express those interesting citrus hop flavours that we start to associate with new world hops, and they might be worth experimenting with - like Jester Although I was looking for rhizomes rather than hops I am keen to support UK growers/developers so...

Re: Citra comparable available in the UK

There has been a few deals in the past for bulk buys on this forum. They typically cluster around when new harvest hops come available It was one such deal that's got me hooked on Citra in the 1st place. I did ping a query on the 'wanted' but no replies unfortunately. Best deal I can find at the mo...

Re: Citra comparable available in the UK

I punted this post out in hope more than anything else - there's obviously a reason why it's still held under licence in the US. I suppose I either take a hit in buying small quantities at a high cost or try and find a few like-minded souls who'd be happy to share the cost of buying in larger quanti...

Citra comparable available in the UK

Which variety, available as a rhizome and suitable to grow in the UK. most closely compares to Citra in your opinion?

I'm currently growing Cascade, First Gold, Fuggles, Northdown, Santiam and Styrian Golding - none of which come close in my opinion.
