Notes

Make a 2.3L starter using 10 oz. of DME.

Add brown sugar and molasses @ 30 minutes into the boil.

If you miss your pre-boil gravity measurement goal:

A pound of DME in 5 gallons (19 L) of wort boosts the gravity 9.0 points, for example from 1.081 to 1.090. A pound of LME in 5 gallons (19 L) of wort boosts the gravity 6.6–7.4 points.

9/30/18: O.G.=1.095 @ 86* => 1.099
10/7/18: took a gravity reading - F.G.=1.015 - sample tasted amazing!
