Notes

This isn't a traditional Alt, hence the name. It's much more of a hybrid that doesn't really fit any particular style. I wanted to try something new, so I subbed Maris Otter for Pilsner and used US 05 fermented on the cool end for a clean profile.

Ended up with only 6 gallons going into boil, then 5 gallons post boil with an OG of 1.053. Topped off with half a gallon of water to reach 5.5 gallons. OG of 1.047.
