Notes

For Brewzilla 35 liter with continuous recirculation.

Water: 8 gal in kettle, add chemicals, at first strike temp (~110F) drain off 1.75 gal for later sparge. Sparge with 1.75 gal or more to get 6.75 gal pre-boil.

Cool to 64F, add 45 sec of Oxygen or 5 min of air, then slight underpitch to encourage esters at same temperature. Wyeast 3068, alternative While Labs WLP300. Near end of fermentation, increase temperature to 72 F and hold 3 to 5 days. Keg without a cold crash.

Carbonate to 4 vols, fairly fizzy.
