Taste Notes

Adding honey into 2ndary a must, otherwise honey taste not really evident.

Notes

Use caCl2 to get to 50 ppm+ of calcium or thereabouts (not Gypsum). Aim for SO4 / Cl ratio of 1.6. Want LOW sulfate level. An low bicarbonate for light beers. Use the lactic acid to get mash to 5.2-5.4 range. Wyeast 3068 is great in this, banana evident but not overpowering. Hard to keep this one around very long!
