I sent this version off to the NHC finals and, while it did go to a mini BOS, it did not medal. At least I know I was close-ish! The final round judges comments made me think I should have stuck with version 1.2 (they said this one was a touch too bitter and over attenuated). I did lower mash temps and toss in some Gypsum. Oh well, now it's splitting hairs as to who likes what. I'm brewing up v1.4 to my liking. Check that one out too if you want.
