Gravity Estimates

Based on boiling {{CalculateBoilVolumeDisplay}} gallonsliters at {{CalculatePreBoilGravityDisplay}} for {{CalculateBoilTimeDisplay}} minutes, this will decrease your wort by {{CalculateBoilLoss}} gallonsliters, bringing your after boil OG to {{CalculateFinalGravityFromPreBoilGravity}}.

You were planning on an OG of {{RecipeSummary.Og}} so you are right on track. Nice job! You wanted an OG of {{RecipeSummary.Og}}. It looks like it will be over. You wanted an OG of {{RecipeSummary.Og}}. It looks like it will be under.

Notes:

Pours golden with a white head of foam. Quite clear. Aromas of sweet malt and lager yeast, and a faint herbal, noble hop. Medium-light body, with a balanced bitterness. Bitterness fades into sweet, honeyed malt. Starts crisp upfront, but finishes a touch sweet. Would've been better with a lower ABV, and maybe a touch less bitterness. I imagine if it had been 5.5% it would've come across more pilsner like. This is exactly what I was thinking--bigger helles, with a similar balance. Try for a lower O.G., and a slightly higher finishing gravity next year.
