repurposing for huell melon pale ale. with updated water profile results from ward, my water profile for this beer now looks a bit out of wack by the numbers but it worked well for the last beer so im just going to roll with it for now until i have time to figure out how to fix it.
This lutra is taking forever. Tonight its 10 brix which is like 1026 and 4.6%. Tastes sweet. Still bubbling smh
measured 1060 OG i think i got more than 5.5 gallons. i accidentally grained into my entire volume of hot liquor. after mash i sparged a little with about 1.5 or 2 gallons of cold water. pre boil vol was like 8.5 gallons
revamping summer madness for this beer which will feature mighty axe julius hops instead of cascade. going with lutra again.

last week measured 1013 FG for 4.8%abv. but it does not taste that light. nice body and carapils flavor, also the dry hop was faint but nice. could maybe use more dry hop but in the interest of keeping it light and cheap and not-session-ipa, i think its perfect just like this.

Not too confident on 70% eff dropping to 60, bumping 2row from 975 to 1150. Should do better with water but i think I'm gonna use tap and leave out acid
Just had Port City Essential Pale Ale recently which has to be the tastiest pale ale on the very least it is one of my absolute favorite beers. this time it strikes me that it has a lot of not bitter hop flavor and decent backbone while still being 5.5%.

Their website says 35ibu so im knocking down the warrior contribution from 0.75 to 0.4oz. Adding more cascade in the flameout and dry hop (1oz-->2oz)

consider going 3oz in dry hop. maybe some pilsner malt or something else to add more malt backbone. vienna? but the carapils might be fine. at least to start.

need to review water. would like to use tap and adjust but unsure rn, been having off mash pH readings and low efficiency.
