Notes

5-29-2021 Pressure fermented .

6-4-2021 -- Dropped one pound of 2 row and droped 60l to .5 lb to get to under 5%. Also dropped the sparge. Changed up the hops dropped the oz of Spalt at 60 mins Dropped .4oz hersbruker at 10 and 5 mins, and dropped the hersbruker .5oz dryhop.

1-26-22 The beer got reviewed by the Brew Dudes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdFoHJEfv1o With that said going to bring back some hops and change out the water profile. Bumped the Gypsum from 3g to 7g. to get away from the balanced profile and try and make the hops pop a bit. With the hops I added another .5oz of tettnanger at 60 mins and added another .5oz tettnanger to the dry hop.
1-29-22. Ended up using Harvest as no more 34/70 at the shop.
