Citra Wheat Brew Day

I've been brewing a Citra Wheat beer for a while, just not recently. I normally use Citra for all hop additions, but I find using Citra for bittering a bit unpleasant.  So this time I replaced it with some Cascade, and only used Citra as an aroma addition.

I am also using Austin Hombrew's special Persica yeast. I'm hoping the promised peach/apricot notes will go nicely with the Citra.

It was a very humid day, and after brewing, nothing would dry!
