    #46 Citra extra pale ale brewed from AllInn fwk. I transferred some into the bottle to experiment with the carbonation cap (could have done with a bit more) and fit the remaining into 19l keg with a hop ball containing 25g of Citra pellets to dry hop. Will remove the hop ball in a couple of days then I will probably ramp up the psi to complete carbonation.
    I'm pretty pleased with this beer even without the dry hop. This beer is a bit thin in body but AllInn did intend for it to be a showcase for Citra hops

    ^ my mate made that same beer and a few others from the same brand. All tasted thin. Obviously from the dilution. We changed the last batch to 18lts only adding 3 to the fwk, turned out much better

    From memory the recent cubes contraband IPA (white IPA) and bearded dragon (APA) had decent body. Contraband was on the thinner side but I found bearded dragon to be quite soupy. Body and mouth feel are what I really love in a beer. The impression that I have and as described on the cube was that this beer is intentionally light bodied to focus on Citra and I gotta say I like Citra. I have the keg carbing up at serving pressure right now but in a couple of days when I pull the hop bomb out of the keg I will speed things up so I can get a better impression :)

    Again with the Citra extra pale ale, tasting pretty good with the dry hop addition in the keg for 4 days. Tho I'm thinking about natural carbonation next time.

    Wet hops in the whirlpool, dry hop, and keg.
    Would probably drop the Munich by half, but other than that I'm pretty happy with it.

    Self carbonated British Best Bitter, first one out of the secondary, no doubt there will be more by bedtime, or until SWMBO notices the sway.

    It's not because Munich sucks, it just reduces the drinkability. I notice that malt in the background instead of blending in with the Vienna.
