Notes

Tweaking the recipe: lower efficiency based on planned batch sparging, upped the dry hops a bit based on planned use of gelatin for fining. Might also slightly adjust the crush on the barley mill. Should adjust to .032"-.035"

Desired: 7 gallons for boil

At 1.25 qt/lb, need 1.25*16 = 20 quarts, or 5 gallons of strike water. If we lose approximately .12 gal/lb, we'll lose 1.92 gallons, and collect 3.08 gallons of wort. Thus we should add .42 gallons (6.72 cups) of water before collecting the first runnings.

After, we add 3.5 gallons of additional sparge water, vorlauf, and run off the rest of the wort.

Will Brew this one again! A bit more citrus than the original axe man but better I think.
