Notes

Issues with boil rate (6 gallons fermenter full as opposed for a target of 5.5) as well as excessive spage which lead to a higher pH (5.4)

FG at 1.009, Still relatively young but seems to be lacking hop flavor. A bit of a bit to it, unsure if it is just from carbonation.

Next iteration add a touch of higher kilned base malt, and switch the pale 2 row for golden promise. Add an additional half pound of Munich. Add an oz of Lemondrop to the Dry hopping and increase knockout addition to a full oz of Bravo.
