Notes

This was a no chill batch, so i put the boil hops with a long duration to try and estimate the IBU better.
Day 6 checked SG, 1.021 or so
Temp was kept at 16c for first 4 days, then ramping 1c / day. currently at 19.5 c
Hope it gets down to 1.015 at least.
Tasting on day 6, clean, wheat flavour, not much going on, nose is okay , Touch of bitterness in line with the 15-20 ibu expected. going to crash the sample and try later, as there is a lot of yeast in suspension
Set it to 20 and jostled the bucket, seems to have picked up a bit

Tuesday, so day 9. Down to 1.011, calling it done, sample is nice enough, maybe a little bit of alcohol smell on the nose. MIght smell some banana. hard to judge a 20c sample. Tastes nice enough. Super cloudy, lots of yeast in suspension. Going to cold crash for several days then keg and dryhop in keg. Carbing to 2.5 vol and serving.
