Final Review

Too sweet. Wrong grain used by accident due to supplier mixup. Used Caramunich instead of regular Munich. Oh well. Seems like it could be promisingly good if not for cloying, malty sweetness. Will try again with corrected grain bill.

Notes From Aug. 24, 2012 (Brewing)

Gravity Reading: 1.068

Mashed for 90 min due to lunch. Stuck sparge from thin mash and too much runoff during vorlauf.

Notes From Sept. 9, 2012 (Moving to Secondary)

Gravity Reading: [Not given]

Diacetyl rest for 5 days. Racked to secondary. Chilled to 50 F. Will reduce temp by about 4 F per day down to 38 F.
