Step by Step:
    Mash this beer at 149° for 45-60 minutes. Raise temperature of mash to 165°­, (called mash-out temperature) then run off 7 gallons of wort to begin your 60 minute boil. When boiling starts add 1.0 oz. of Citra hops and boil for 60 minutes. With 30 minutes remaining add 0.50 oz. Citra hops. With 15 minutes remaining add 1 Carrageenan Tablet. With 10 minutes remaining add 0.50 oz Citra hops and 1 lb dextrose. With 1 minute remaining add 1.0 oz. Citra hops.
     At the end of boil turn off the heat and cool to pitch temperature. Add yeast when the temperature of your wort is less than 70°, and begin fermenting. Around the 5 day mark or when fermentation slows add 1.0 oz Citra hops directly to the fermenter. Wait an additional 3-5 days, then check the specific gravity of your beer. When finaly gravity is reached, bottle or keg as desired.
