- 1 Kg Briess Dry Malt Pilsen Light
- 150g crushed Pilsener malt
- 150g crushed Wheat malt
- 40g Hallertau hop pellets

Mashed the crushed malt in a couple of litres of water around 75 degrees for 30 minutes. Pitched the yeast in 300ml warm water for 30 mins. Boiled 20g of the Hallertau for 10 minutes then turned off the heat adding the second 20g and leaving for a couple of minutes before adding the dry malt.
Filled the fermenter, pitched the yeast and took the hydrometer reading SG1040.
Sat 1 Sep Racked off @ 16 degrees Celsius, perfect! FG 1005. Beautiful sunny day outside spring in the air and popped 100g of fresh green 2012 Motueka Hop flowers 7.9% Alpha Acid
