Sounds great! Just to note, shortly after this brew I had recalibrated my hydrometer, forgot to post the changes. My fg was actually 1.010 so you prob don't need to mess with the mash temps

Ending up mashing at 154, dropped to 152 over an hour, it's well below freezing here so I should be alright.

FG: 1.05

Going with 1oz hallterauer (4.3%) at 60 min

1/2 Saaz (8.1%) at 5min

16.5 IBU

Finally took a sample for a gravity reading after 12 days in the primary. This beer is quite clear with nothing floating or settling in the bottom. Has that nice light SC haze to it. The taste and mouthfeel were pretty good but I couldn't really tell what I was tasting. I was heavily researching my next beer last night so that definitely affected by taste buds. lol My OG was at 1.055 and am now at 1.018. I'll let it sit 2 more days then keg it. No need to cold crash it unlike my kolsch. I figure a month in the keg and I'll be good to go!

I kegged this yesterday at 1.014 and will let it sit for awhile under CO2 (3+ weeks). I was surprised at the clarity which might suggest that the 6 row had something to do with it. Until then I have another beer or two up my sleeve.

How did that one turn out for you? Have you done a side by side comparison?

It turned out quite well, I haven't yet got a chance to do a side - side testing, I'm really hoping to this weekend if my uncle hasn't guzzled down the 6 pack he bought.

I'll post a picture next I drink one. Turned out pretty clear and easy drinking. I carbed it a little high, but it's nice and smooth. Slightly corny/malty taste that is balanced pretty well but some sweetness. not overly fruity without much hop bitterness.

Finally found some SC to do some comparative testing

Little more body and definitely win in the head retention department. Slight fruitless as well in mine vs the original.


Family concludes: I win
