Mash the grain at 152°F (66°C) for 60 minutes, adjust with lactic acid if necessary to hit mash pH of 5.1-5.3. Mash out to 172°F (78°C) and collect 6 gallons of wort. Boil for 60 minutes. Cool to 66°F (19°C) and pitch the yeast and ferment at 66°F (19°C). Add dry hops just before primary has completed (be careful and add the pellets slowly to avoid a geyser) and hold dry hopped beer at fermentation temp for 7 days before cooling to 32°F (0°C). Allow the beer to condition cold for 5 days before racking.
