Mash Notes
Tried for a really dry beer with this mash schedule. Last runnings 1.016 and tasty.

Fermentation Notes
added dry yeast after cooling while trub settles in kettle siphon out after several hours, aerate topped fermenter with tap water no OG reading

lightly toasted 3/4 pounds of the munich added 1 tsp CaSO4 to the tap water (and usual campden treatment)
