Reported color 14-16 SRM.
Decoction at mash out to increase color.
Reused yeast cake from previous batch of California Common.
After tasting it together with Shell's Firebrick, it seems like the malt bill is extremely close. The ferment was too warm, so I thought there was a significant banana problem, but others found it ok. Hopping was too high.
Next time: same grain bill, 10-20% less hops, cooler ferment.
