It's a label of something. You can read letters on the "piece of grass" at top left. You know
the malt is on the inside of the can right? :ban:

Also the attenuation numbers provided by the yeast companies do not mean you cannot get beers
that fall well outside that range. They use specific in house tests, that are mostly for

So looking at the recipe and some follow up posts I see that the mash is started at 148 for

I tend to use BeerSmith 2's 'Hop Age Tool' just to try for some accuracy, but I tend to brew
IPA's where the change from 80 IBU's to 70 IBU's does not mean much. I have lots of 2011 & 2012
