    Glad y'all enjoy the recipe; it's the first one I've tried to reverse-engineer.This info is
    clearly OBE, but I lagered at 35 for about 3 weeks. (Sorry for the long absence.)

    I mashed at 150-something. Mash temperature control is on my need-to-get-better-at list.
    Thinking about it some more, I might even consider dry-hopping with Saaz, though I have no
    experience doing tha...

    I was thinking I'd bump the flavor addition up 10%-ish and at least 50% more aroma hops at
    flameout. My palate is not very calibrated, though; most of my brews are malty styles with
    little to no flavo...

    Finally finished the head-to-head comparison after 6-ish weeks of lagering in the bottle. I
    call it 80% identical to Peroni; quite pleased with the results of this second
    iteration!Percloni on the lef...

    In retrospect I do not recommend mashing with cooked grits. 1.6 pounds of grits cooked per the
    box turns into over a gallon of goop that solidifies in the fridge overnight. I had to use a
    stick blende...

    D'oh, completely missed the rice. O.oThe rice and six-row is a nod to post-Prohibition American
    lager. Helps lighten the brew up for our non-beer enthusiast friends. Haven't yet tried it on
    them, howe...

    SO is it the using of mt hood instead of something like hallertauer what makes this an american
    maibock? Was the mt hood choice because it is similar to hallertauer/tettnanger, or
    availability?Mt. Hoo...

    I used Horizon instead of Mt. Hood for this second iteration, which just went into the
    secondary. FG was 1.008--surprisingly low--putting ABV at about 7%. Hydrometer taste test was
    quite promising; lo...

    Final verdict: quite tasty and getting closer to the goal! Needs another iteration or two. -
    Color is very pale and appealing- Didn't finish quite dry enough, and the mouthfeel is a bit
    thick. I think...

    Transferred to secondary today and tasted the hydrometer flask. Promising! Nice extra-pale
    straw color. Hop flavor was maybe too pronounced, but we'll see after a few weeks of lagering
    and carbonation...
