Notes
Prepared 2000 mL Yeast starter with 1500 mL of water and 1 cup of Pilsen DME 20 hours before pitching. Had to affix blowoff hose to starter as it started bubbling through airlock.

Steeped grains in 2 gallons of water 150-160 for 30 minutes. Sparged with 1 gallon of water 170.

OG was 1.1015 and FG 1.026.

Priming amount although adequate for style should be cut down. If poured in appropriate glass it is fine but when giving out to friends that may not have Belgian glasses it would appear over-carbonated.
