Notes

Brewed on 10/10/2020. BIAB Method.

Strike vol = 8.25 gallons, temp = 157 degrees F to yield mash temp = 151.5 degrees F.

SG = 9.2 Brix = 1.0367 g/L (7.5 to 7.75 gallons after mash).
OG = 10.8 Brix = 1.043 g/L
FG = 1.008 g/L
At 15 minutes I added 1 whirlfloc tablet.

At 1 minute I added 16 grams of wet hops (mix of cascade and magnum) from my hop vines.

3.2 lbs (2L) of blackberries hand picked by Iris and myself at Putah Creek Reserve. Website says blackberries have gravity = 1.030 g/L.

Gravity on 10/14/2020 was 5.2 brix which after correction = 1.007 g/L Hydrometer said gravity = 1.008 g/L

Actual ABV somewhere around 5 to 5.5%.
