Three Floyds Zombie Dust Clone Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a hoppy American Pale Ale, similar to Three Floyds Zombie Dust. A single-hopped ale brewed with 100% Citra hops. Medium-bodied with aromas of citrusy and tropical fruit hops. High hop bitterness for an American Pale Ale. Dry-hopped for added hop character.



10.5 lbs Pale Malt

1 lb Light Munich Malt

8 oz. Crystal 70

8 oz. Carapils

8 oz. CaraMunich

Hops (Pellets)

1 oz. Citra 12%a, 60 minutes

1/2 oz. Citra 12%a, 30 minutes

1/2 oz. Citra 12%a, 20 minutes

1/2 oz. Citra 12%a. at flameout

Yeast: American Ale – Wyeast 1332 Northwest Ale

Dry-Hop: 1 1/2 oz. Citra – whole leaf recommended


Mash all grains for 1 hour at 152 degrees.

Sparge at 170 degrees.

One hour boil with hop regimen above.

Ferment at 63-68 degrees.

Rack to keg or secondary and add dry hops.

    Have brewed this twice now. First batch to exact recipe, and found it was a little too bitter for an APA, but had good hop balance, lots of citrus aroma and light tropical fruit flavor. I found my modified second batch to be more pleasing though. I changed up the hop additions, adding .85 oz at 60 min, then did .5 oz at 20 min, .5 oz at 10, and 1.15 at flameout and got a much smoother, fruitier beer with less bitterness and more up front hop flavor. Both beers reviewed well with the brew club. Citra hops are wonderful

      Hi Connor, What was your amount of water for mashing? And what was your amount of sparge water? What was your amount of Yeast you have used? All this resulting in 5 Gallons of beer, am I right?

    How long do you ferment this and dry hop this batch?



    Brewed this a few weeks back and it tastes awesome! My efficiency was a tad lower so next time I’ll bump the pale malt by 8-10 ounces.



    Love the tropical fruit aromas and flavor from the Citra hops.
