Total mineral addition to 100% liquor: 0.1tsp Gypsum, 0.2 tsp Epsom, 0.7tsp CaCl, 1tsp Chalk, 2tsp Lactic Acid. Also treated all liquor with bread yeast and DME to scavenge O2 for 90 minutes at 80* before ramping up for mash.

Beer finished at 1.004

2nd out of 33 in the 2018 Indiana Brewers Cup. DYNAMITE light lager. Ratio of Pils to 6row is perfect IMO.

Notes

No NAMBS added. Adjusted mash schedule from previous batch to dry beer out more. Hoping the elimination of the slow-ramp from 146* to mashout temp will decrease the maltyness and make it more style-adherent. Previous batch was great but "had too much flavor" per a few judges.

2nd Place: 2018 Indiana Brewers Cup
1st Place: 2018 Hammerdown Brew Cup
