Notes

Change hopping to FWH, drop zero minute addition.

Bronze Medal, the Brew Hut Docktoberfest competition, September 2016

For 2017, slightly modified grain bill (reversed proportion of Munich to Pilsner malts, added an ounce of Caramunich, deleted acidulated malt), upped IBUs to 25. Won Gold Medal at the Brew Hut's annual Oktoberfest competition. That's me with the medal and the booty box in the upper left photo.... Won gold at Rocky Mountain Homebrew Challenge.

For 2018: Modify as follows: Reduce IBUs to 23. Replace Tettnanger with Hallertau. Add some Carapils for head retention. Try mods on a 2.5 gallon batch.

I am not happy with the 2018 mods, particularly the melanoidin. Will keep the Carapils, lose the Crystal Malt and make a 3-gallon batch for Docktoberfest.
