Notes

Bake 6 large persimmons cut into 6ths 45 min at 325, cut and add to mash at 30 min

Cut 4 large persimmons into 6Ths add to boil at 30 min in mesh bag.

Actual AA on the hops were higher than projected and drove the IBU out of type, but I like hops so I did it anyway.

Efficiency was 3% over but OG still within type
