Converted over to BIAB and ran as 10 gal batch (plan on ~75% mash efficiency due to process losses with BIAB). Used a single starter of saflager W-34/70 for viability & cost and split between 2 6 gal fermenters. Immersion chiller took over an hour to get to pitching temps resulting in a higher than desired IBU. Cut back on steep step if you cant get it to temp in 25 min or less. Kegged @ 1.011 / 5% ABV which is a little high for style. Tasty stuff, still to much "flavor" for my wife. Very clear but my batch came in about 1/2 a point high on color. Cutting back on the bitters next time to get it closer to Bud. Careful temp control required during mashing to get achieve BL or similar.

Tastes like Bud Lite only better. Clean, crisp, crystal clear. Everybody likes this one.Keg barely lasted 3 days.
