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

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

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

Guess it didn't turn out so well? No update/results. :)Sorry, I haven't been back to this fine
website for quite some time. And I'm not really sure why. I offer penance.In fact, my American
