The Quinoa (a complete protein on its own) inclusion makes this a hard beer to get clear, especially when cold.
I have been on here for a year or so and this is the first recipe I have posted. After a few iterations, I think that it is ready. The European malt is a must. Also, I have to add that this recipe started out as a variation of BeirMuncher's SWIMBO Slayer and has evolved into it's own thing. I may try and up the Quinoa in the future but this one has hit the sweet spot in my book.
