Batch 270 Arrogant Bastard clone

 A lighter version of Arrogant Bastard, this should come out at 5.8% ABV rather than the 7.2% of the commercial version. I have quite a lot of Chinook on hand, but I didn't want to open the new bag for the .75 oz I was short in the old bag, so I filled out the recipe with the last of my Citra.

10 gallon batch

23 lb 2-row

1.5 lb white wheat

8 oz Crystal 120

Mashed at 155F, collected 12 gallons in the boil kettle.

3 oz Chinook, 85 min

2 oz Chinook, 45 min

2 oz Chinook, 15 min

1.25 oz Chinook, flameout

2.0 oz Citra, flameout
