trying to make hardywood singel but no attempts online! going off of this :

adding the simple sugar to fermentor not during the boil but a couple days into fermentation. will probably dissolve in a little water.

meanwhile trying to hit the official hardywood singel stats : OG 1.056 ABV 6.2 SRM 4 IBU 30. I sense a little woodey or piney something in the beer so im adding a little more hops plus a flameout addition. adding decent amount of light crystal malt to try to achieve a little sweetness without sacrificing the color. probably gonna mash at 150 but try to stay on the cool side.

there is a kind of sour taste to the beer too so im not sure how to achieve that, but likely through yeast selection. still looking at yeasts...would oberon yeast be a candidate?

ogg tony suggests White Labs wlp500

aa on hallertau hersbuckler in this app was way different than german hallertau from the store so i bought too little hops. substituting east kent goldings a little in the bittering addition.

planning to add the sugar to minimal water (pint or two) bring to boil and boil down as much as possible. chill then add to fermentor on day 4 or 5.
