    that might be a fun project. brew it three ways, or have three people brew it.

    one mash low, one high, and one in the middle, all with some subtle tweaks (the low masher could add some late hops, etc. )

    I wish I could say I have time to be part of the threesome here but I'm not sure when I can fit it in or I would take the 149 with a dry hop.

    Really I could do either the low or mid. I would prefer the 153ish with no dry hops. But that's because I'm lazy.

    In any case I'm in. Weather permitting I could probably do this around Christmas.

    Ok. I'll do the 149 with dry hop. If no one else bites? It'll be a month or so before I could brew it. Maybe 6 weeks.
