Notes

Brewed 2/10/14. Blocked the false bottom on accident in the mash tun due to float so I had to transfer it to the kettle and then back to the tun. Topped off with 3/4 of a gallon of water to hit 151F. pH was 5.2 (estimated at 5.4). Hit 85% kettle efficiency. Efficiency was a it lower than usual might have been from sparging too fast. Runoff was also quite cloudy so not sure if that had something to do with it. False bottom got clogged a couple times when draining into the carboy. Possibly too much pellet hops and hot/cold break. Temp on day one of fermentation is about 64F. 2/12/14 temp has been between 65-67F. Added 3/4 of a pound of corn sugar in about a cup of water to boost up the OG. 2/13/14 temps were about 68/69F. 2/14/14 took out of the swamp bath and brew is sitting at about 71F. Dry hopped on 2/24/14 when all signs of fermentation were done. 3/5/14 biofined with 2 tbls. Cold crashed 3/7/14. Racked to keg 3/9/14. Pretty tasty IPA that has a bit of that catty thing going on. Wondering if I repeat this if I should switch all citra additions to 0min. Took 2nd place in the category in the Bridging the Gap competition.
