I’ve scored some whole flower Citra hops, and am going to have a go at a Zombie Dust clone next week. If you haven’t tried this Three Floyds brew, it is just AWESOME. Huge, juicy Citra hop profile, only about 6,2% ABV or thereabouts. I’m going with a single-malt brew, just using Weyermann’s Floor Malted Bohemian Pilsner malt and Chinook whole hops for a FWH addition then stuff in a couple doses of Citra towards the end of the boil and try the ''hop standing" technique. I’ll also dry hop for good measure.
I’ve never dry-hopped with whole hops, should be an adventure. I’m using San Diego Super Yeast, I was very pleased with this strain as it’s very clean and lets the hops really shine. I’m adding a twist to this by going with the floor-malted pilsner malt and a double decoction mash for fun.
Anyone else try Zombie Dust?
