Grid IPA 3V Conical v1_1

Same beer as the last one (Grid IPA 3V Conical v1_0) but instead of Vic Secret this one was Galaxy and I moved to 2/3 CC and 1/3 Gypsum. Not a bad beer but the High Color malt really is not great.

Brewing Notes:

cut cooling on whirlpool @ 205F and it dropped down to about 195F and to 180 by end of 20 min whirlpool
only cooled to 66F and then cooled in conical before pitching
normal 3V brewday. adjusted salts according to new IP book so 2:1 CC:Gypsum. moved to CTZ for bittering at ~20IBUs

wort tastes great. hops smell amazing. 2019 crop and very fresh from yakima valley hops.
