Notes

Version 2.
Yeast swapped out to WYE 3068

Lowering herbal character of final product:
-drop coriander from 10 to 2 g
-dropped pepper entirely
-dropped Magnum and Columbus hops, replacing with more Saaz and Target for more floral character.

Brewing notes 26.02.2017:
dropped coriander altogether
pre-boil gravity (mash infusion only): 1.041
OG on the money: 1.061

Will prime in bottle.
