Notes

Washed yeast from primary fermentor of batch #4. Kept in fridge for 1 week and made starter 27 hours before pitching into #5 batch. 1.6L starter with nearly 1 cup DME and pinch of yeast nutrient.
First all grain batch. Briar will be brewing after mash.
Preboil gravity at 1.035 at 95F
OG was 1.050
I used 1 gal too much water on 2nd batch sparge. 3.5g, 2.5g, 2.5g would've worked out perfect for the beer. Maybe this is why I was .006 lower on OG than recipe called?
1/16/15 - Bubbles in airlock have stopped two days ago. Fermenting consistently at 61-64F in closet wrapped in 2 towels.
