wow, 1043 > 1002 with a 152-154 mash with almost 8% crystal?

looks good, low calorie, dry beer probably making you want more :mug:

Yea my jaw dropped when I saw it attenuated like that. Gonna check it against the next time I brew to make sure I read it right. But tasty none the less.

I actually changed the recipe a bit and am going to use Centennial for bittering, then adding 1oz of cascade for a week to dry hop. This actually raised the IBUs to about 43.

Then I had this idea. Why don't I split the batch and add 1/2 oz of lightly toasted oak chips to half. Anyone have any idea how long I should let this sit? I know a lot of people say to taste, however I would like a starting point to work off of.
