Clone of Reddit recipe. I have extra Mosaic and mandarina-bavaria so I substituted out Galaxy for the former. I reduced grain as well as I have been getting good efficiency and did not want too strong of a beer.

USED 10.25G Resulted in 7.75G. Boiled down too much to 5.5G. I believe I added 3OZ Mosaic instead of MB. I will dry hop w/ 2oz of MB. Added .5G to fermenter so I can have a full 5G to the keg. Next time use 9.5 instead of 10.25G.

Collected 9 gallons water. 5G Strike water 4G Mash. I believe I sparged too fast. Next time use 10G and sparge slower - should take about 1 hour to sparge. Fermenter broke and by Monday 4/1 temp rose to 77F. I transfered to kegerator and dropped temp to 67F. 4/6 Increased temp to 69 and added dry hops. 5/11 PM cold crashed.

9.5 water. 5.5 strike water. sparged with 4G. Added calcium and gypsum to wort instead if strike. Resulted in 7.5G wort @12 brix. Low efficiency. Next time use 1 extra lb of 2 row and mash longer.

 Water Infusion  Mash/Boil  Tasting
Too much water. 11G. Boiled extra hour to get final gravity up to 14 Brix SG 1.0568. Resulted in a lot of extra hot and cold break material in the wort. I lost about an extra .5G to junk in the wort. Dry hopped for 3.5 days (forgot to weigh down so lost some hop utilization) during which 2.5 days were cold crashing. Next time cold crash for 1 week and dry hop for the last 5 days. 10/30 Kegged.
