Switching back to BRY97 and because this beer is bracingly bitter I thought I would balance the BU/GU a bit more. Adjusting IBU from 75 to 65. This would put it 10 units above the GU of about 1.055. Really like the flavor of this one, but hoping for a bit more balance on it.
I think Lutra has a tendency to leave behind a bit more so it was beneficial to have it last time, but BRY97 and a closer BU/GU should do the same thing.
Also, adding 4 g of ascorbic acid to the mash for antioxidation purposes. https://www.homebrewtalk.com/threads/vitamin-c-the-game-changer.698328/ for reference. Due to us canning, we're looking for any anti-oxidative protection we can get.

Initially made from a Love2Brew Kit.
Made with BRY97 the first time, but don't have it on hand. Using Lutra dry yeast from Omega @ 72ºF. Originally called for BRY-97 at 68ºF. Lutra is expected to attenuate a bit more so ABV might be higher. Also do not have American pils around so using Wey Floor Pils.

The first iteration was very strongly bitter, but that might have been from the unitank heating jacket heating up the hop cone. This beer was a crowd pleaser and folks drank the heck out of it even with it being sharply bitter.
