This was the brewer's first all grain batch. Although it was a shade on the cloudy side, it was extremely popular among my friends, especially those accustomed to lighter commercial beers. The next time this batch is brewed, the brewer may increase the original gravity by adding another 1/2 to 1 pound of 2 row grain to the mash.
