1/2 lb Flaked Wheat
1/2 lb Crystal 40L
1 lb Vienna Malt
1 oz Crystal Hop Pellets (5.1%AA)(60 min)
1.25 oz Crystal Pellet Hops (5.1%AA)(20 min)
1.5 oz Saaz whole Hops (3.4%AA)(20 min)

- Chill wort, pitch yeast.
- Brewed 19 August 2006.  SG 1.056 (78% efficiency).
- Racked 26 August.
- Kegged 2 September.  FG: 1.010 (4.75% ABV)
Crystal hops are a bit on the harsh, citrusy side, but I'm sure
they'll mellow.
- Tapped 9 September.  I'm still not completely thrilled with
the hops, but Gormr & Elphinstone really like this.  A bit
more time for me...
