I'd mash at 156/158 because the alcohol is going to be low and you'll want the body. It's very

I shouldnt have to pay for something that only half works. I am stuck because I cant take the

Not a lot, probably a BU/GU ratio of .75. It's not terribly bitter. It's very malty though,

sufficient pitching rates.

It might be worth noting that the yeast I'm using is not a huge kreusen producer normally
anyhow so the lack of kreusen on the stirplate is not remarkable. I did get activity within 8
hours and it's f...

Yeah it's been going for about 20 hours now and the amount of yeast is amazing. No kreusen but
