Brewing Notes

I think I forgot the dry hop addition. Make sure it goes into the next attempt.

Needs more Carared since it is still quite amber in colour. Try increasing up to 7-8%.
Remove the Carapils and replace with equivalent wheat.
Try going 50/50 on the Pale and Pilsner. This could end up being all Pilsner in the end.

The Rye level is just right with a well balanced level of spiciness. This may increase as I start trying to replace the Pale with Pilsner.
Hops are very well balanced, but will see how the dry hop addition which I think I forgot goes.
As it is clearing it is becoming more sessionable, and using more Pilsner may help this more.
