Notes

10.7 lbs of grain in the mash:

9 lb Pilsen
1 lb Munich Dark
0.5 lb Crystal 60L
0.2 lb Roasted Barley

Strike your mash with 4 gallons @ 161F and rest for 75 min. Target mash temp is 150F.

Vorlauf and collect first runnings.

Sparge with 5.1 gallons @ 177F.

Collect second runnings and prepare to boil.

Boil is 60 mins.

1 oz Hallertauer (4.7%aa) @ 90 min for 15 IBUs
3 oz Saaz (3.3%aa) 30 min for 22 IBUs

Cool to ~63F and pitch a vial of OYL-001- Alt yeast.

I did a starter.

This worked out to be 4.7%ABV and makes for a very tasty session beer, and it scored the recipe creator a gold metal and first in show. Cheers!
