Notes

Original recipe earned a Silver Certificate at the 2016 National Homebrewing Competition (37 points, one short
of Gold), in spite of low carbonation. One judge thought it a bit too roasty and dark, although I think the former
might have been the result of the light carbonation. To address both issues, I have dropped Carafa 2 for Carafa
