======= 11/7/2023 ===============
this beer came out pretty good, not as good as the previous batch though. the differences between this batch and the last are :

  • this batch used 0.5 oz warrior bittering, the previous did not
  • this batch used citra instead of mosaic, but in the same amounts and times
  • this batch had centennial split up more. there was more shifted from later stages to earlier in the previous batch

    this one did come out with a little more bitterness which was intended. but it doesnt slap you across the face with hops like the last one did.

    ======= 10/14/2023 ===============
    reworking this for a round 2! this time using citra and leaning more on centennial. everything else - water, grain bill, yeast, etc. will keep exactly the same!

    ======= 10/14/2023 ===============
    this brew (bling bling 1) came out fantastic! couple execution items to clean up - didnt seem to clear out fully, and 2nd half of the keg had faint oxidation.

    the hop combo was really nice, mosaic dominated and there was no bittering. next time consider going 2/3 centennial 1/3 mosaic

    finally about to brew!
    decided to go with corn instead of rice. adjusted the water profile. its a little high on calcium but should be locked in to the 1:2 cl to so profile adjusted from tap water.

    thinking about mash hopping?? maybe not for this since lager yeast
    new recipe!

    i think i have the malt bill down, 80-20 pils to rice. would like to understand the difference between using flaked rice vs minute rice (any flavor difference? any price difference?) and also between flaked rice and flaked corn (flavor difference?)

    also need to figure out water, im guessing i can use my west coast ipa profile

    also need a plan for hops. what bitterness we aiming for. going fruity/juicy? or classic american hops?

    will go with 34/70 at 68 degrees
