I did the 5 gallon recipe. My favorite homebrew to date and one of the best beers I've had. I bottle conditioned and it did come out a little under-carbonated, not sure if it was because of the yeast's notorious tendency to stall out or just didn't add enough sugar. I fermented in an non air-conditioned room in Hawaii that was probably in the upper 80's much of the time. Really fruity and the citra seems to come in up front. Don't hesitate to brew it.
