Brewed 6/28/16. Yeast is actually Hansen Blend WLP0075 from white labs. Strike was about 168 and I ended up with a at about 156F. Had to cool down with recirculating a gallon and topping off with a quart of cool water. I cut the sparge at 2 brix and had to top off with 3/4 gal of water to hit the right amount. In kettle efficiency was very high at 92% (1.040). Efficiency was a bit better than expected so it's more probably going to be more like a traditional lower abv IPA. Chilling took quite a while again so I might want to look into that. I had to chill the wort down a bit more in the bath which leveled out at about 63F is lower than I had wanted. 6/29/16 by morning it had risen up to about 64F so I cooled it a little and by evening it was that same temperature. Temp was at about 66F in the morning so I cooled it and by the evening it has reached 66F. 6/30 and 7/1 brew was between 66 and 62F. 7/2 it's sitting at 65F, and I am going to let it rise up naturally now. Tested gravity and biofined on 7/12, beer was very clear. Beer is good but turned out a bit more bitter and less aromatic than expected.
