WLP029 with a starter.
I have four goals with this batch:
First, prove to the world and myself that I can mash grains.
Second, use up some noble hops I have sitting around.
Third, to give me something refreshing to drink this summer so I'm not tempted to break into my Oktoberfest in July.
Finally, to give me a reason to finish my honey-do list so I can just sit in my hammock.
