Notes

Havoc starter..5 grams gyosum in mash.
All homegrow hops! Note flavor and bitterness.
Fermented in fridge taken in and out from 46-64 degree range but kept at 50-56 for most of the time yeast seemed to like that temp the best.
On 9/8 gravity is 1.040 37 percent attenuated so ill give it till 1.025 ish before diacytl rest...tasted sweet but with an amazing lager flavor not to much sulfer dms or diacytl very supprised at the distinked lager taste.

 On 9/10 gravity 1.030 almost ready for d-rest tasted good 52%AA.<br />

Xferd on 9/15 gravity 1.014 or 6.69% 78% AA very good exactly how i expected it clean lager taste light no dms or diacytl..
Only issue is cloudyness ether from grain crush,corn or yeast.

     Bottle on 9/19 with 4 ounces priming sugar FG= 1.012 6.96% 81% AA!!! Tasted great super proud of this first lager!
