Notes

Fermented for 6 days at 15C ambient, wort rose to probably 17C.

hit OG perfectly, but FG was lower than expected, higher attenuation, finished at 1.012, still within the style though.

After 6 days, put on balcony to cold crash at 1-3C for a day

Best Lager I've ever made, perfect balance of crisp and malty, hint of noble hop character, delicious. I just wish I waited for kt to fully lager before drinking 80% of it haha
