Notes

Used whole leaf Amarilo hops in boil. OG was low 1.055 vs 1.078?? Added water to mash due to temperature was 148 vs 152. Reduced Sparge water to compensate. Collected about 5.5-6 gallons wert.

Dry hopped on 2/26/12 with a total of 2.23 oz of Citra/Centenial/Columbus/Amarilo hops and left it in primary due to travel. Some activity still present.

Kegged on 3/7/2012 - Great hop citrus aroma and taste. nice body and sweetness of a red ale. There was about half to 3/4 of a gallon extra left after filling 5 gal keg.
