    223.7 calculated using Rager. Obviously you wouldn't be able to precieve that much or even get that much in the actual beer. But it does layer the flavors and chance the perception.

    This looks awesome. When I can get a bunch of citra I might have to brew this.

    i see you are fermenting under pressure. i havent experimented with that although i've done a bit of reading on the subject.

    have you compared hyperbaric and atmospheric fermentation of the same recipe? What is your take on the benefit of hyperbaric fermentation?

    Also, did you add a spunding valve to some home made fermenter or did yo buy something purpose built?

    and this has to be the most expensive all grain beer recipe ever conceived.

    I have 3 'fermenters' where I ferment under pressure. 2 of them are 10 gallon corny kegs with spunding valves and one of those "Onederbrew" fermenters. I'm not the biggest fan of that thing...

    I do find that I can get a much cleaner beer and a much higher temp with the beers fermented under pressure but I have not done this recipe side by side. I just formulated this recipe and this is the first I've used it.
