Notes

Mash at 156 for 60 minutes. Ferment at 65 and slowly raise to 70 towards the end.

Notes: 17.35 pushed my Clawhammer to the max. This caused poor efficiency and grain getting into the mash. Should have used a bit less water as I had too much even after a 90 minute boil. Double check the grain absorption rate for my equipment. Only had 1 oz of chocolate malt so I made up for it with black malt.
Next time use less grain and more DME to get higher SG.
