From here:
Have Krispy on hand. Wish I had Krispy 2.0 or Lutra.

Krispy @ 68ºF was good. I think Lutra would be as well. Going with semi-cold (60ºF) fermented 34/70 on second batch. Also fixed "leaf/whole" to pellet for initial bittering addition.

Went sulfate heavy (light and hoppy BFriend profile) and it was really drinkable, but almost too "drying" on the palate in the finish. Going to try a balanced profile as I want a little of that rather than shift straight to a chloride heavy profile.

Balanced profile seemed better than sulfate heavy so sticking with that. Still quaffable, but less drying on the palate. Reducing the grain to 11 from 12 lbs to reduce the strength a bit. Want to be able to have a couple.

Second batch with 34/70 came out with a lot less orange, but also a lighter body. The hops shine through a bit more and it's highly crushable. Definitely going into rotation.
