Notes

Needs more body-add flaked barley. Needs a softer more rounded finish- add calcium chloride and magnesium. Swap some of Maris out for Pils, it will add a sweeter finish. Can probably drop the Victory malt and increase the melanoidin by 50%. Increase the crystal by 50-100%, needs more caramel, maybe add some light/medium crystal in addition to the dark crystal. Hopping is okay, yeast selection is okay.
