Notes

Beginning water volume: 7.43 gallons

Malts
Pilsner (2 row) Ger (2.0 SRM) (95.2%)
Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) (4.8%)

mashed at 150F (65.5C) for 90 minutes then bring to a boil

2 oz (56.7 grams) Hallertau @60mins

1 Whirfloc Tab at 15mins

German Ale/Kölsch yeast (White Labs WLP029) and fermented at 60F (15.5C) during primary. slowly Raise to 65 after week 1 at 1 degree per day and then hold at 65 for remainder of fermentation.

(I don't make starters so I will probably use SafAle K-97 German Ale Dry Yeast instead)

Cucumber directions
(consider letting it ferment 2 weeks and then add cucumber for second 2 weeks and then rack to a keg which is what I plan to do so it doesn't mold and less chance of yeast doing weird things to the flavor)
6 cucumbers
Peel off skin
Soak in starsan
Cut into cubes and freeze
Juice or use blender to blend up
