Batch 218, Oktoberfest

Last year's batch was not good. Drinkable, I guess, but no one really liked it. Not sure why it didn't come out as well as the year before.

10 gallons

There is a slight change in the grain bill from last time, the home brew store was out of Vienna, so I use more Munich in its place. There should have been 8 lb of Munich, 7 of Vienna, I used 15 lbs Munich this time.

10 lb 2-row
15 lb Munich
1.5 lb White Wheat
1.0 lb Crystal 60

Mashed at 142F for 1 hour, then a 10 min recirc per sparge. I wasn't aiming that low, but that's what it was and I didn't adjust the temp. Adjusted pH to 5.2

1.25 oz Magnum, 60 min
2.25 oz Mt Hood, 5 min
1.25 Hallertau, 5 min

90 minute boil

Used 1 quart of the same yeast as in Batch 217.

OG: 1.060 actual
FG: 1.015
IBU: 28.7
SRM: 10.0
ABV: 6.0%
