Brewed this one today (11/24/17)...missed the OG by a few points (1.053), but overall went well. Let's see how the dry hop & cold coffee additions go.

Added the dry hops & coffee beans today (7 days after pitching yeast)...will be bottling this next week. Gravity sample tasted good...could really taste the Vienna grains.
