Vienna Session IPA

I made this beer yesterday. Recipe courtesy of the mad fermentationist. I did a few small tweaks according to his tasting notes, and bumped the gravity and hops up just a tiny bit. I’m looking forward to trying this out.

OG was 1.042 and I mashed a tad colder than I originally planned, or around 66°C.

Recirculating the mash. These tiny pumps are awesome!

Hoisted the grains up and gave them a squeeze

And a beautiful sunset at the end of the brew day
