Steep the grains in the mid 150s for 45-60 minutes.
It is assuming a 5 gallon batch,
3 gallon - 60 minute boil, and adding the extract at the beginning.

If you can do a full boil you probably wouldn't need the extra 1oz.Citra at 60 minutes.

Extract notes from the forum thread author:
As far as First Wort Hop / Steeping hops.... I would add them with around 10 min left in steep (before rinse), and put them in a different bag than the grain. Then you can leave them in for the whole boil.

I've brewed this twice now and my 1st attempt is bottled the 2nd will be getting bottled tomorrow. I tried a bottle last night only one week after packaging....this will be very good beer! Needs more carbonation and some condtioning time but I loved it. So much I drank two. Give this another week or two and it will be much better. Very similar to Zombie Dust...afterall there's only one true Zombie Dust! The aroma will make your mouth water. Good mouthfeel and body for an extract brew

I've currently got his fermenting. I tried a small sample yesterday when taking a hydrometer reading and have to say the aroma and taste is out of this world. Really can't wait to try this once fully fermented and matured.Will definitely be brewing this again

I tried this recipe and I think the brew was phenomenal. I actually like it better than Zombie Dust, if one can believe that. The only issue I am having is that the SG was was low, 1038. I did use LME and a proper conversion but still think I might be low on sugars. It was my first ever home brew so who knows maybe I did something wrong along the way

Really excited to try this recipe out, but I one question first. Should I be rinsing the steeping grains? If so how should I go about doing that?

At what temp did you ferment?

I've got this in the secondary now, going to bottle in the next day or so. I dry hopped another 2oz of hops (total of 4oz), so it should be a real hop bomb. Super excited about it.

I was'nt able to buy as many citra as I would have liked to for the dry hop, but nevertheless the beer was reaaally good

New to home brewing so sorry if this is a dumb question, but what priming sugar are you using? Guessing corn sugar?
