Citrarillo Extra Pale

Reminiscent of the S&W pacific ale, this is an easy drinking pale ale with a refreshing burst of citra hops. Perfect easy drinking beer for a hot Aussie summer.

Combine 12 litres of 71°C water (strike temp) and the malts in the Mash-Tun. Rest at 66°C for 60mins. Add 7 litres of boiling water to raise to 75°C and rest for 20 minutes. Recirculate and run-off. Sparge with an additional 11 litres of 75°C water to make a pre-boil volume of approximately 26 litres.

HOPS FOR THE BOIL (60 minute total):
10g Amarillo (15% AA) (60min boil)
1tsp Irish Moss/Whirlfloc (10min boil)
30g Amarillo (15% AA) (5min boil)
30g Citra (15% AA) (0min boil)

Chill the wort and aerate well. Start fermentation as close as possible to 18°C, preferably with Wyeast 1056 American Ale, Safale US-05, or Mangrove Jack’s M44 US West Coast yeast.
On the 5th day of fermentation dry hop with 30g Citra for 5 days.
