Notes

Did a 1.5L starter
Will pitch the starter and an additional pack of yeast.
Lagered for 5 weeks at 34F
Finished at 1.021= 4.5%, don't think I pitched enough yeast.
Kegged on 5/2/2016 with 30psi, shook for a couple minutes and let it sit. Will shake every day at 30 psi for 4 days then see.
Tastes really good! easy drinking. chococlatey and roasty with a clean finish.
Next time i brew this i will use less dark malts..
