Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

One of our most refreshing ingredient kits available!  The Citra® Session is a low ABV, low SRM pale ale.  The thing we love the most about this kit is that the Citra® hop profile comes through beautifully and is able to shine due to a basic malt bill, low ABV, and clean bitterness from our magnum hops.

If you're looking for a clean, hoppy beer that you'd be able to have a couple of without the IPA buzz, the Citra® Session Pale Ale should definitely be on your radar!

Estimated OG: 1.040-1.045
SRM: 5-7
Estimated IBU's: 29-33
Estimated alcohol ABV%: 4.2-4.5%

I have brewed this kit before and it is a very tasty beer that many like. add a little more pale malt and some corn sugar to boost the ABV if you like but it is good as it is.

Scott L on Sep 18, 2020
Whats the estimated final gravity of this beer? Im on day 10 of fermentation with White Labs WLP001 and only down to 1.020. I hit my OG perfectly this time.
Thanks Erik
erik legenhausen on Mar 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I would keep it in the fermentor for atleast 18 to 21days, your FG should be down around 1.012. next time use a dry yeast always seems to work better
I have question about adding hops at the end of the boil. I use a bag for my hops during the boil. This recipe instructs to add hops at the end of the boil. Do I keep them in just during the cool down process, or do I take them out when I put in the fermenter?
Frank Barton on Nov 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I leave the hop bag in the kettle through the cooling and transfer process. After the kettle is empty, i remove the bag and clean it.

Perfect Summer Beer
I made this for a party of "non-beer drinkers" and they all loved it. Did not get one bad review. Even my neighbor that only drinks light american domestics came back for a second pint.

Excellent choice
Turned out fantastic! The Citra came through beautifully, But be careful on your Efficiency, I hit 6.2 ABV, a little high on a session.

Easy drinking with the citra hops coming through fairly strong. Great all around beer for when your feeling hoppy.

Will be my go to pale ale
This kit is a home run! I brew 2.5 gallon batches so I just split this kit in 2. I fermented 1 batch with Wyeast 1272 and the other with US-05. Both are outstanding!
