Mash at 150 for at least two hours......we are going for "less filling tastes great" !!

I chilled the wort to 60 degrees and pitched a 3 liter starter from a stir plate. I allowed propogation and the first 4 days of fermentation to go at 59-61 degrees. Then I allowed fermentation to raise to 70-72 degrees for the next ,almost three weeks.

The resultant ale is dry, clean, and crisp. Great for summertime! Enjoy
