WARNING: Kettle losses >2% detected which throw off OG calculation for extract/partial mash recipes in batch target 'fermentor' mode. Solution: Reduce kettle dead space, misc losses and hops absorption in equipment profile, OR set batch target to 'kettle' and do a full wort boil. See batch target FAQ.

Notes

Ferment in the primary fermenter for 7 days, or until fermentation slows, then siphon into the secondary fermenter. Three days before bottling, prime the beer in the 2nd stage with another dose of the same strain of fresh yeast. Bottle when fermentation is complete with:
1/2 cup corn sugar and 1/3 cup maple syrup boiled in 2 cups of water.
