Half pils, half munich here too,
my hydro sample tasted wonderful today day 6, kinda bitter, But wl036 sweet taste, I cant wait,...I dont like carafa so i used 4oz chocolate wheat, and i can taste it in the sample.
I did 118deg. 20 minutes, infusion 147 for 25 min. 154 for 25 min. then mashed out at 168. first step mash for me, i think it will pay off,,, also fwh with mt-hood/spalt mix, Im certain this to be my best ever, this style is great.
...good luck with yours
