Cal Common 3V Conical 1

Another beer in NHC 2019 run of beers. Overall NHC thoughts covered in Schwarzbier discussion. This is the only beer I dry hopped out of all my NHC beers so I did get to take advantage of dry hopping with positive CO2 pressure as well as dropping the cone before and after dry hopping.

I should mention this recipe is based on recipe from local NHC gold medal winner Keith Eisel and adjusted for my system.
