How did it turn out.

I'm looking at the FG and the IBUs

It's actually a really good beer, and the best session beer that I've made to date. This is my first attempt at a Mild, and it's pretty close to most of the commercial examples that I've had. I was shooting for a FG of around 1.010 but I ended up lower than that.

Maybe need to mash a little higher.
Thy need to have a good body for the size of the beer.

Glad it turned out well.
They do make fab session beers.

Sounds like a good brew to hit the next brew day!

'atta boy!

I'm really diggin' this beer. I'll be brewing it again very soon. It's much clearer than it appears in this pic, and it was a hit with the BMC drinkers at a recent party.
