Mike Riddle graciously donated his recipe on a dime after MayFaire.
The mashing schedule starts with the strike with the 24lbs of Pilsner malt. After the 15 minute rest, the aromiatic and munich are added for the 150F rest.
Mike also performed a bit of kettle carmelization on the first runnings during sparge.
Mike's notes indicate a ferment at 68F for 4 weeks and aged for a year before entry.
