5 tablets of chlorine treatment added to strike water
Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator

Boil rate with Christian's burner was exactly 1 gallon/hr.
Started with 9 gal. in strike water. Added 5 campden tablets to remove chlorine. Brought up to 162ish. Added barley and temp. dropped. Had lots of trouble getting it back up to right temperature (fluctuating), I think i spiked it at 170ish? Not sure.
Waited 80 minutes. At the end of 80 mins., I pulled the barley and 8 gals remained. Boiled with lid open for 60 minutes. Worried falling leaves from mimosa tree may have fallen into the boil, but didn't see any during the boil. Accidentally added 1oz hops at 60 (was supposed to add ½oz at 60 and the other half at 30). When boil was finished, I still had 6.5 gals. Took FOREVER to cool to 80. At 80 or maybe a little under (1:30 am), i drained to fermenter and tried to keep out junk and ended up with 4. I kept adding more from the bottom of the boil, and the quality was nasty looking, but brought it up to about 4 ¾. and took a sample at 1.046. I added 2 bottles of cold water to bring it up to 5 gal. I added the yeast and stored.
