Notes

This is an amazing DIPA, but not quite Pliny yet. I'm still making tweaks to replicate the original since the only way to get it in MN is to order online. The crystal malt in the recipe I started with was c-40, but that left the beer too dark and sweet (for Pliny), so I'm using lighter crystal and a slightly lower mash temp to produce a crisper, dryer beer. My measured FG last time was 1.012, shooting for 1.010 next time.
