Notes

1/2 tsp calsium sulfate (2 g) as water treatment.
reason: adding Ca+2(calcium) lowers ph and aids enzyme activity. Adding SO4-2(sulfate) accentuates hop bitterness. Ideally I would add 1/4 tsp (1g) Calcium cloride, but I did not have any available on brew day. Cloride would accentuate maltiness.

Used WLP300 instead of 3068, and it came out just great!

you start with 15 liter at 50, let it rest for 20 min and then add 4.4 hot water and try to reach 60. let it rest for 40 and on it goes?
