Treat water as desired to match style. Mash at 152 F for 60 min.
Boil 60 min.
One package of fresh yeast is probably sufficient with this low OG, but I used a 1L yeast starter.
Pitch at 68 F, ferment at 68 F
After primary fermentation, transfer to secondary for clarifying and conditioning for 10 days.
