Citrucide Pale Ale

Decided to make a nice light Pale Ale with an Amarillo Mosaic blend. It turned out fantastic, so I thought I’d post the recipe.

The dual dry-hop additions are not a mistake; I’ve been having very good results cutting my dry hops in half.  I add half when fermentation is almost complete, and half about 3 days later.  This allows the first load to intermingle with the yeast that are still in suspension, producing some favorable compounds that are not otherwise produced.  The second addition adds back some of that aromatic “pop” that can be lost by CO2 scrubbing at the end of fermentation.
