Mash Notes: Used in some authentic German styles. Attempt to draw decoction from the thickest portion of the mash. Profiles vary. Some traditional German mashes use a long acid rest at 40 deg C.

Notes

1/4 oz orange & 3/4 tsp coriander 15 min
1/2 oz orange & 1/2 tsp coriander 3 min
added rest coriander (seemed like 90% of it!) and 1/4 oz. orange peel at flame out and steeped as cooled for 5 minutes
protein rest took too long (nearly 1 hour!)

this was a great beer. cloudy and pale. great taste. nice thirst quencher. Not my recipe- forget where i got it- but i tweaked it a bit after researching other recipes.
