As for upping the Pils malt...it depends on the gravity you're looking to hit. Belle Saison

Agreed with stpug on all counts.Ditch the grits, or mash them. Pils would be a more fitting
base malt than 2-row pale. Bring the biscuit down to half a pound or cut it out entirely.I'd
ditch the 45 mi...

I'll have to check out the kiln coffee. I've seen it around but never picked it up to play with

for 2 da...

I've never used Kiln Coffee malt so I can't speak to that, but the chocolate/roast quantities

sugar being added to the beer from the pineapple juice with your priming sugar measurements, or
let the pinea...

What was the grain bill for the beer that your mash came out so low with? Did you do any other
