Notes

very disappointing brewing efficiency on that specific day. ended up with a much weaker wort and down-sized the total boil / fermenter volume to remain within style limits. primary @ 19 c for 2 week, racked to keg with 90g corn sugar and lagered for 3 weeks @ 19 c. cold crash @ 2 C. pleasant carbonation, light tanned thick head with good retention. very malty balanced with a fresh aroma and bitterness (did not adjust hop addition to new volume). very pleased with the result
