Notes
Wort SG 1.0655 = 73% efficiency (adjusted efficiency to 65% to match OG.

Added brown sugar in at 10min with 2nd hop addition.

Will chop up 1/2c each of raisins/prunes, simmer in reserved wort, cool, and add reduction/fruit in hop bag to primary. Sugar from fruit will raise final ABV
- - -
0 Days - OG 1.072
3 Days - SG 1.038 (added raisins/prunes)
7 Days - SG 1.037 Not tasting special. Hoping flavors develop soon.
11 Days - SG 1.036 Tasting better but meh. Soaking 4 cinnamon sticks in vodka for a day to add to fermenter tomorrow. Hoping for cinnamon raisin bread.
12 Days - moved downstairs to cold crash for a couple days at 55°.
14 Days - SG 1.037 Tastes decent. Very little cinnamon. Excited to see how it develops with time. Moved upstairs and added gelatin. Will keg tomorrow.
