This time it's a California Common, one of my favourite styles:

Grain:
79% Pale
8% Munich
7% Crystal
4% Biscuit
1% Vienna
1% Pale Chocolate

Hops
30g (25 IBU) Northern Brewer @ 60
25g (10 IBU) Northern Brewer @ 15
25g Northern Brewer @ 0

Fermenting with White Labs WLP810 San Francisco Lager Yeast @ 16.5C. I am aiming for ABV 4.9%, hence the name. Starter is underway!

This brew went well. The estimated OG in Beersmith was 1053, and I came in at 1045, but this seems to be down to not losing as much to the boil as I expected this time round. The yeast starter worked a treat and it's now ticking over in the fridge ; )

My efficiency came out at 71% this time (thought it was lower but just recalculated), which I was very pleased about.
