Notes

Used 2Kg of Maris Otter milled 1-2months ago, which could explain for the efficiency loss. Also overshot on water and got 28L after boil instead of the expected 24L.

This snapshot has been updated to reflect the changes during brew day, original recipe is left alone, turning the recipe into a session hazy IPA more than a proper NEIPA.

24/08/2019 10am - One of the weights on the iSpindel moved while on the fermentation tank, thus screwing all the gravity readings. Might be better now as the weight is back in position, but need recalibration.
