Kettle: 3ml 75% Phosphoric

2/6/21-Maris Otter+Comet (8.2%) I think I will be shooting for 50IBU for this recipe, whatever the hops used, as this is intended to be my SMaSH ale. I am still keeping a minimal amount of victory/amber/C40 in order to just round out flavors slightly. Infected! Poured onto the plants.

3/4G went into a separate fermenter with one seeded jalapeño to make chili beer.

**5/9/2020-Pilsner + Huell Melon (5.5%). So I was going to make a lager, but my cooling methods won't be sufficient given the temperatures lately. I am changing this recipe to fit a lager malt bill with Pale Ale/Strong Bitter hops and yeast. Adding Acid blend to lower ph, and putting this on the yeast of the previous IPA. Kegged & DH 5/17/2020. Interesting melon, not very bitter flavor.
