Water is heating up as we speak. need a recipe, open to anything!



Yeasts - Wlp 800, US05 and Wilcos ale yeast (OOD last year so i intend to double up if required)

Hops -
saaz 3.1
hersbrucker 1.6
target 8.9
magnum 10.5
columbus 18.1
EKG 5.7 and a
small amount of cascade (20g) 6.1

grains:

Pale ale malt
crystal
pilsner
munich
roasted barley
vienna
aromatic
caramalt
wheat malt

I'm presuming its too late to do a pilsner/lager as it wont be ready for the festival. any reccomendations?

Otherwise it will be a EKG SMASH
