Notes

For your grain bill, use around 10% Carapils, 5% Munich, 5% Crystal 50-60, and 2.5% Caramunich 45. Target a 16.5 Plato OG and it should terminate between 3 and 3.5 Plato. Target 65 IBUs and make sure your flavor strike in the boil and the dry hop are both enormous. Good luck, hope this helps!
