Last year’s gose was too good not to repeat. This time through I’m trying Gigayeast’s lacto blend (though Wyeast is noted in the recipe), and switching up the hop variety from saaz to spalt. Most recipes seem to use spalt or santiam, but last year’s beer was made from a Mad Fermentationist recipe that used saaz.

The brew day went perfectly and efficiency ended up much higher than expected. This is the first beer I’ve done using Brewer’s Friend, so I set the brewhouse efficiency a bit low. I suspect I saw 72%. Other than uncertanties in efficiency, I’m really liking the new brewing software.
