Pretty close. More bittering hops needed. Yeast experiment I would say worked; however I will switch out to bevarian lager on next batch. Color dead on . Flavor dead on (dank). Bittering off needs alot more bittering hops . Water a hair too soft. Close very drinkable as it is.

Batch #2 I switched to a built up starter of bavarian lager yeast. And doubled bittering hops. It is lagering now, too early to tell. I went ahead and brewed batch #3 without tasting batch #2 whitch was a radical revamp of both recipes using even less distilled water and moving all the hop additions early in the boil. Time will tell.
