Mash at 67 degrees, 60 mins. Sparge at 77 degrees. 26L runoff. Mash actually hit 68 degrees. Boil as listed, but accidentally used our Amarillo addition at flameout instead of dry hopping. Will need to add some other hop for the dry hopping. No-chill process, so left outside overnight, yeast pitched in the morning.

7g Crystal, 3.3%AA
