Batch 18 - Ye Old Bay Serpent California Common

My first all grain batch of brew! Here is the recipe along with a picture of the mash and the wort lautering into the brew kettle. Yay.... (and it's a new brew category - 7B California Common!).

Grain Bill:
9.5 lb. Great Western American 2-row
2 lb. Light Munich malt
.10 lb. Briess Victory
.5 lb. Briess Crystal 60L
.25 lb. Briess Crystal 120L
.25 lb. Dextrine malt (Cara-Pils)

Single infusion mash - mash temp 155 degrees for 1 hour.

Batch sparged. Got about 60% efficiency.

1.25 oz. Northern Brewer (7% AA, 60 min.)
0.5 oz. Northern Brewer (7% AA, 20 min.)
0.25 oz. Northern Brewer (7% AA, 5 min.)

Pitched with Wyeast California Lager #2112
