Steep the crushed malts in 2.5 gallons (9.5 L) of water at 155° F (70° C) for 30 minutes. Remove the grains from the wort. Add the malt extracts and boil for 60 minutes. Add the first hop addition of Amarillo at the beginning of the boil primarily as a foam inhibitor. Add your irish moss for the last 30 minutes. Turn off your burner and remove your pot from your heat source. Now add your 5 ounces of Amarillo hops, and stir to mix in. After about 3 to 4 minutes, begin using your wort chiller to drop the temperature of the wort to pitching temperature. This addition is a bit tricky, but the goal is to have the large amount of hops in your beer for about 5 minutes after the beer has finished boiling, but prior to cooling below around 150. This extracts a small amount of hop bitterness, and a large amount of hop flavors. When you have cooled your beer to about 80, you can strain the beer into your fermenter. Aerate your beer and pitch your yeast. Ferment at 68°-70°F to help hold the aromatics in the beer. When fermentation is complete, rack your beer off the trub, and add the remaining “dry hop” addition of 3.0 oz. of Amarillo, and allow the beer to absorb the dry hop flavors for about 4 days. Then bottle or keg as you normally would.

I 1st brewed this after a lengthy stint of years of not home brewing. I didn't filter well after the boil and dry hopped for 5 days. I bottle conditioned for a month. There was a distinct celery flavor at first swig from the glass. Then went away with subsequent drinks. I shared with several friends and all enjoyed it after the first taste. It was very drinkable. Great head, great citrus, aroma, and nice bitterness. I'm brewing this again and changing out the hops with a blend of Rakau, Galaxy, and Cascade.
