Notes

Caramel Malt is GW Sacchra 50. They suggest it provides mouthfeel, a mahogany hue and is slightly earthy to allow hops to shine through. Wanted GW Pilsner, but shop only had Weyermann.

Pilsner: Weyermann
Maris Otter: Hugh Baird
White Wheat: Great Western

Starter: 3.6 oz DME in 1 liter provides 237 billion cells.
