Here's my second shot at it. I bottled the WLP006 side today and it seemed like it's going to turn out quite tasty. This one ended up at 4.7% thanks to pitching a vial at half the amount of beer as last time and probably doing better on not dipping the swamp cooler temps too low. 87% mash efficiency certainly didn't hurt either.
