Notes

This was my first all grain that I did and then I repeated it with my neighbor's hops. It came out great and he wanted me to brew him a batch, so that is when I entered this into Brewers Friend.

This is my fifth time using this basic recipe. I only changed the recipe today to update the brand of the malt that I purchased.

The recipe is for 45 minute infusion mash at 154, but I ended up doing 60 minutes as well as a mash out for 10 minutes at 170 degrees. Hops are from a friend and a 50/50 blend of Centennial (9.5% aa) and Cascade (6% aa) estimated. These are leaf hops and each jar contains about 1.7 ounces of hops. Average 7.75% aa. I am also going to do a 60 minute boil rather than 90 minute.
