Notes

Post Brew Notes: Souring was a guess --used 2 oz of Latic Acid for 6.25 gallons. Could have been a little more and should have had a PH meter or solution to verify.

End product came out slight sour and still very good.

Maintained about 100 degree F for 36 hours using wrapped heating pad with towels for insulation and added halogen light under kettle with a timer/temperature controller.

OG 1.045 FG 1.014 ~ 4.07% Alc
