Used Brewdog Nanny State model. However employed ‘darker’ malts for a little more ‘character’ (total grain bill is only 1.85kg for 45l!). EBC 36 quite a dark ‘ale’. Hopped to excess then some more and more etc. Keeps you guessing to the bottom of the glass! You can drink many…

First Gold / Bramling X originally added as green hops
‘Light water’
Calcium 143
Magnesium 5.4
Sulphate 66
Chloride 61
Sodium 11
HCO3 14

maybe adjust Sulphate Chloride ratio next time to perk bitterness?
