Batch 222 Leeser

Prepping to brew a Leeser tomorrow. Started my yeast today, it's a little different than usual, but should still be great.

Starter:

2 qts RO water
1 cup DME
1 Wyeast 2278 Czech Pils
1 Wyeast 2206 Bavarian Lager

I meant to buy Bohemian Lager, but the home brew store was out. I actually like the specs on these yeasts better than the Bohemian lager:

Bavarian Lager (2206):
Flocculation: medium - high
Attenuation: 73 - 77
Temp range: 46 - 58F

Czech Pils (2278):
Flocculation: medium - high
Attenuation: 70 - 74
Temp range: 50 - 58F

I'll be fermenting this at 55F. Compared to Bohemian Lager (2124), which I what I've been using:

Flocculation: low - medium
Attenuation: 73 - 77
Temp range: 45 - 68F

I assume these new yeasts will make a slightly clearer beer.

10 gallon batch

21.5 lb Pilsner malt
1.5 lb white wheat

Mash at 148F. Collect 12 gallons.

1.5 oz Magnum, 60 min
2 tsp Irish Moss, 15 min
3.0 oz Saaz, 5 min

90 minute boil.

Yeast as above.

OG: 1.055
FG: 1.014
ABV: 5.6%
IBU: 33.8
SRM: 4.0
