With NHC approaching, it's time to brew my best scoring beer ever: BUDDY'S AMBER!
Buddy Harry is the reason I brew today. He taught my cousin and my cousin taught me. Harry passed away a few years ago. His widow passed away last year. Now they're together again.
6 gal batch | 60% efficiency* | OG 1060 | 36 IBUs | 13.7 SRM | 60 min boil
13# US 2 row malt
1.5# Crystal 40
.5# flaked wheat
1/2 oz Northern Brewer/60 min (9.4 IBUs)

.5 oz Northern Brewer/ 15 min (4.y IBUs)

Mash at 154°F for 60 minutes.
I brewed this this morning and got 1.050.
*I know what needs to be done to fix my efficiency, just don't know how to do it. I'm not too mechanically inclined. I need a manifold.
