    BREWING NOTES: Gained .04 gravity points by recirculating mash/sparge. Also used more mash water than traditional to test a sparging theory. Results were better, but nominal.

    TASTING NOTES: As expected! Results have been consistent over 4 batches. Numbers, taste, appearance, flavors all on point. Slight tartness with strong wheat backbone. Love this beer!
