Procedure Steep all grain malts & add "tea" with LME at start of 60 minute boil. Follow hop schedule. Add all DME before final 5 minutes of boil. Stir vigoursly to dissolve all extract before chilling - do not splash hot wort. Please Note: Citra hops are not listed as a recipe option here but the 10 minute hop profile & the dry hop profile will benefit from the addition of .5 oz CITRA while dialing back the CASCADE addition to .5 oz. BUT this recipe "as is" will still make a very nice - sunny IPA. YEAST - for great results: carefully follow instructions on Fermintis web site !
