American Pale Ales (APA) are a refreshing hoppy beer with sufficient malt base to make the beer balanced and drinkable.
The ATF Citra Pale Ale delivers a beer that is hard to resist. Loaded with Citra hops, the beer has brash citrus, grapefruit, and orange flavours and aromas, with hints of resinous pine. The clean light malty base with a background of nutty toasted caramel balances the hops perfectly. The beer finishes dry and will have you reaching for more.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using Lallemand's BRY-97 West Coast Ale Yeast, or you could also try Safale US-05, or Mangrove Jack's West Coast Yeast.
Selecting the yeast from the dropdown box above will add one packet to your cart. Please click the + symbol beside the amount to increase this to the recommended quantity for the batch size.
This recipe employs whirlpool hopping at a set temperature of 65℃ for 60 minutes. If you are unable to maintain a 65℃ whirlpool for 60 minutes you may wish to try the hop burst version.
