Notes:

Don’t let the name of this beer fool you, it was made for one of the first competition’s I entered, which translates into not a great beer.

+- 2 set fermentation at 67 for 7 days and raised to 70 degrees for 3 days then set it to 68 and lowered gradually to 63 over 3 days.

After 7 days gravity was 1.014
After 10 days gravity was – 1.012

Dry hopped with 1 ounce of Simcoe and 1 ounce of Columbus after 13 days no hop bag. Keg after 5 days of dryhopping, racking cane without a hop bag.
