Jdub, thank you very much, my brewing hobby is renewed.

Best beer I've made to date by far, and experiencing citra hops to the max.

Below is your shared Zombie clone recipe.

I am so glad that you like it. I just dry hopped my 3rd LBK batch of it today. excellent brew and simple to make. one note, the hops do fade over time. my plan is to always have a batch fermenting or conditioning along side MRB and other batches.

All it takes is that one success and you know its there and its repeatable if you keep good notes and or a log of your recipes and procedures!!

 

Congrats on your brew! Some will always be more successful or in your wheelhouse than others, but the nice thing is to have a few favs that you can keep in the stable for those batches that you thought would be fun to try but you find your hand going elsewhere in the fridge reaching for a beer.

 

Lol, I give them a grade comment type of thing in my last Excel column for each beer. Most are good and a few great, but I have some that were meh, or just okay. Still fun to try different styles but to keep something fav in the rotation.

Try this one. It's a 2 gallon Zombie Dust clone:

 

steep 4 oz each of carapils and crystal malts in about 1.5 gallons of water at 152 deg. for 30 minutes.

remove grains and bring to boil and remove from heat

add 3 lbs Briess Golden Light DME

Boil for 60 min. here is the hop schedule

.2 oz Citra 60 min

.4 oz Citra 20 min

.4 oz Citra 10 min

.4 oz Citra 5 min

.6 oz Citra 0 min

 

cool your wort and add to LBK and top off to 2 gallons

 

Safale S-04 yeast

 

1 oz Citra Dry hop last 5 days

 

i've made it 2x and think it's great.

 

The recipe above I used Caramel 60 & Carapils malt.  Have another conditioning that uses English Medium Crystal & Carapils malt.

Two more in the making, 1) Conditioning another zombie clone recipe that uses different malts, 2) Using that same recipe, with Nottingham yeast instead.

SWMBO liked it, but too high in ABV, and too hoppy.  If more water is added to pass the 2 gallon mark on the "Mr Beer LBK" it might

be a Zombie Light she will like.  If SWMBO likes it, and commend her on the beer modifications, it might be sky's the limit on new brewing equipment.

Once she mowed the back yard years ago, and was commended on how sexy & shapely her legs were getting from mowing the lawn.

She laughed, said it was only to get her to mow the back, shes mowed it ever since.  I still mow the front yard, but now with a really good mower.

I guess that means your legs are not so shapely?

Hmm, good point, I better start mowing the back yard also !

On second thought, to help my chicken legs out, I'll ask

my neighbors if they don't mind I mow their lawns.

I mow all of our yard, front, back and field.  But luckily, I have a John Deere and it does all the work. 

My legs are definitely not shapely but I ain't ever giving up the 'ol Deere.
