Notes

162 strike water, 9.5g RO strike volume, 2tsp gypsum (1tsb per 5g water)
dough in, recycle 60 mins at 150



primary fermenter 7 days, and secondary dry hop 5 days. turned out good...easy drinking, not too bitter. high pitch temp didnt seem to ruin. ferment longer in secondary next time...was still bubbling a bit.
