Notes

Brewed December 6, 2019 -

Followed Complete Joy of Brewing procedures. Didn't add gypsum and didn't bring grains to a boil. Only brought them to 150°F for steep. Also used 6 lbs of Kroger Red Tart Cherries in Water

This was the third pitch of the Safale 05. Brought wort volume to 5 gallons for ferment.

Wasn't liking the 1.5 gallon boil...it was too thick and the hop utilization very low

Everything worked out on this brew. But next time I would do a full wort boil to get better hop utilization, Also would ferment in glass in primary that way I could let fully ferment out instead of racking per Papazian recipe (I Think it was too soon and I lost potential cherry sugars). In glass with blow off tube, less chance of mold on cherries
