Notes

I brewed this beer earlier this year.
I was using up left over grains, and hops.
I'm certain I used more than 15g at 60 minutes, because the beer turned out really bitter.
I'm going to update these notes once I brew this again.
If anyone has brewed this please let me know how this was.

I think the first time I brewed this I put more than 15g of Citra in at 60.
Like, way more than 15g because it was super bitter.
I'm going to brew this again to see if it was the recipe, or my error.
